We all know someone like this in Tri-Cities.

I moved to Tri-Cities from Iowa back in 2003. I like to think I know the area pretty well and by proxy, the people who call it home. If someone were to ask you "What kind of people live in Tri-Cities," do you think you'd have the answer? Tri-Citians are as different as the cities themselves. We have a lot of people who have doctorates, farms, boats, and who can speak multiple languages. We all seem to know someone who can play guitar and sing. All of these people make Tri-Cities feel more like home.

A home for all walks and stages of life.

Tri-Cities is a great place to raise a family and a great place to retire. Many people do both, living their entire lives here. I grew up here, I'm raising a child here and I don't have many complaints. It's only getting better.

As Tri-Cities grows, we get more amenities, chain stores, and local businesses. The Tri-Cities has never felt "too big" even as it gets bigger. We have ax-throwing centers now so I'd say we've made it. I'm still holding out for some New York-style pizza joints, but the food here has always been fantastic. There's always something fun to do and a new activity to try. For the record, Tri-Cities is a much better place to live than Guthrie Center, Iowa.
