Whether it’s the skyscrapers of New York to the Pacific coast of Seattle-northwest regions, did your cities make the top movers list?  The snowy northern winters to the sunshine and relaxing beaches make these top choices

The Census showed that people moved when they were dissatisfied with the current housing, safety or neighborhood. About 18 percent of people who moved last year relocated from one large metro area to another. A growing number moved to a smaller city that was not too far away from their prior residence.

Los Angeles continues to be a top destination of movers, which had nearly 245,000 people relocating from other metro areas. Other top destinations included New York and Washington, D.C.  The smaller cities like Austin, Texas, and Riverside, Calif., are gaining more residents with more people are moving in than out.
