Top planned communities in the West

Top planned communities in the West

It’s easy to see why Americans have always been drawn west: the landscape, opportunity, and life itself just seems bigger. Home to vibrant cities, more national parks than you could hope for, and some of the most historically significant Native American dwellings in North America, the American West is diverse and bound to inspire.

Not to mention, there’s something for everyone, from laid-back art enthusiasts to avid outdoorsmen to the suburbanite who wants community and convenience. With such diverse people, communities, and natural surroundings, there’s certainly a “perfect” place for you among the wide expanses of the American West. With states like Arizona, Nevada, California, and Washington, it’s one of the best places to live.
