Have a city, town or neighborhood to recommend? Send it along to letters@circahouses.com!   Founded in 1778 and named in honor of Louis XVI, Kentucky’s most famous city is a little bit Southern and a little bit Midwestern. Located on the border of Indiana and Kentucky, and home to flavored chewing gum, bourbon, and the Kentucky Derby, Louisville is the oldest city west of the Appalachian Mountains. The city was an important post during the Civil War and a centre of manufacturing during World War II. Its nineteenth and twentieth century wealth is reflected in its architecture: the

Have a city, town or neighborhood to recommend? Send it along to letters@circahouses.com!   The New Year always starts with big plans, high hopes, and lots of motivation, and this year moving or buying a house is probably at the top of many of your lists. Over the last ten years my own moves have been largely motivated by something other than just an intense love for a city (mainly driven by the location of the school I’m attending), and as I get close to graduating this year, I am beginning to think about what’s next, and where I can

Have a city, town or neighborhood to recommend? Send it along to letters@circahouses.com!   Welcome to December, a month of festivities and excitement! Be it the hustle-and-bustle of a local holiday market or the jovial chitter-chatter of get-togethers with friends and family: merriment abounds. Storefronts fill with cheery scenes of the season and lights seem to twinkle just about everywhere. If you’re lucky, you even get a magical snow-filled day or two.

Have a city, town or neighborhood to recommend? Send it along to letters@circahouses.com!   Named after Edward Baker, the only US Senator ever killed in combat, Baker City is quiet, quaint, and nestled in a valley of snowcapped mountains in eastern Oregon, between Portland and Boise. Put on the map in the mid-nineteenth century by the Oregon Trail, and later settled by Gold Rush prospectors, Baker City delights equally in its rich history as it does in its small population of about 10,000. These days everyone is crazy about Portland, but I say abandon that grueling pace of life and

Have a city, town or neighborhood to recommend? Send it along to letters@circahouses.com!   When I think of “opportunity cities,” some of first places that come to mind are those infamous Rust Belt cities in the Great Lakes region. From Detroit to Cleveland to Buffalo, we’ve all at one time or another been seduced by the romantic and heart-wrenching photographs of these once grand cities’ urban decay. Such images take some of us only as far as a fantasy, while others — the courageous and adventurous — flock to the possibility of these places. Willing to look past the crime, ruin, and unsettling vacancy that characterize such

Have a city, town or neighborhood to recommend? Send it along to letters@circahouses.com!   If you live in a big city then I’m sure that you, like me, have spent hours daydreaming of a quieter life where your rent or mortgage buys you not just substantial indoor space, but some outdoor space too (and maybe even a laundry room). But if, like me, you are also slightly frightened by the slow pace of small town life, then you snap yourself right out of those daydreams and carry on with the hustle and bustle of city life, pushing calm and quiet out in favour of culture, convenience,
