With the country so split with political strongholds, it can be difficult to live in an area where no one shares your political views. You may not want to wear your red MAGA hat out to the store. And you may not want to show off your new Trump bumper sticker in some parts of the country, either.
If you’re thinking of moving, there are quite a few conservative cities across the country to consider – and we’ve rounded up the top five.
These cities tend to have a strong religious presence and prioritize traditional values:
Provo is home to Brigham Young University, a private university owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Provo is known for its scenic views, outdoor recreation opportunities, and vibrant arts and culture scene.
Lubbock is a city in northwest Texas known for its strong ties to country music and its vibrant arts and culture scene. It is home to Texas Tech University and boasts a variety of outdoor recreational opportunities, including numerous parks and lakes. Lubbock is also renowned for its delicious local cuisine, including BBQ and Tex-Mex dishes.
Bakersfield is a city in California known for its contributions to country music and agriculture. It is home to California State University, Bakersfield and boasts a variety of outdoor recreational opportunities, including numerous parks and nearby mountains. Bakersfield is also renowned for its delicious local cuisine, including Basque dishes and Mexican food.
Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
Oklahoma City is the capital city of Oklahoma, located in the central part of the state. It is known for its cowboy culture, with attractions such as the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum and the Oklahoma City Stockyards. The city also has a vibrant arts scene, with the Oklahoma City Museum of Art and the Civic Center Music Hall. Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy the Myriad Botanical Gardens and the Oklahoma River, which offers rowing and kayaking activities. Oklahoma City is also home to the NBA’s Oklahoma City Thunder.
Jacksonville is the most populous city in the U.S. state of Florida and the second-largest city by area in the contiguous United States after Houston. It is the county seat of Duval County, with which the city government consolidated in 1968. It is a popular tourist destination for its beaches, parks, and museums. It is home to the NFL team of the Jacksonville Jaguars and a major center for business, finance, and transportation.
All of these cities have a few things in common – including the ability to find good Mexican food (weird, huh?) Anyway, we’re not telling you to move to any of these places. However, if you do move there, or at least visit, you’ll find plenty of other conservatives that you can commiserate with.
