Visit the New City Before You Move

This accomplishes two main things: One, It makes it so much easier to find an apartment, and two, you can get a feel for the different neighborhoods and find the one that’s right for you. You wouldn’t buy a car without taking it for a test drive, would you?

Ask Plenty of Questions

On your initial visit, don’t be afraid to ask your future landlord (and neighbors) tons of questions. After all, who better to tell you about the neighborhood than the people who actually live there? When you grab lunch at a local restaurant, chat up your server and ask what they like to do on the weekends. That way, you can get a feel for your new city before even relocating.

Do Some Serious Online Research

The Internet is your friend when it comes to getting to know a new city. Rent.com’s blog has some great posts about the best neighborhoods to live in, and you can use review sites like Yelp to get the low-down on locals’ favorite places to eat, drink and be merry. Once you’ve relocated and you’re trying to navigate your new hometown, Google Maps will be your best friend.

Hit Up Local Hot Spots

As the saying goes, there’s a Starbucks on every corner, which means that’s not where you should be getting your morning coffee if you want to get to know your new neighborhood. Skip the chains and hit up local hot spots like small businesses and farmers markets to get a feel for your new city’s unique vibe.

Read Local Media

The Wall Street Journal is not going to tell you what you need to know about your new city. Instead, subscribe to local newspapers (or pick them up on the corner) to find out more about recent news events and what’s going on in this bustling metropolis you now call home. Local bloggers can also be a great resource, and you can trust them to give their honest opinion about that new restaurant around the corner.

Get Your Hair Cut & Get a Drink

This may seem a little strange, but getting your hair cut or having a quick beer can be a great way to get to know a new city after relocating. Hair stylists and bartenders spend their entire day talking to people, and are generally pretty “in the know” when it comes to what’s happening around town. You may learn more in that hour than you would in an entire day of searching the Web. Plus, finding a great hairstylist is one of the first things you should do when you relocate anyway!
