America is urban, rural, industrial, agricultural and suburban. American communities take all shapes and sizes. To live successfully in America, you need to know how to find a place to live, settle into it, maintain it, and become part of the community, all subjects of this chapter.
Since American holidays and special days often involve community activities, we include them in this chapter. We also cover childcare and pet care, with sections on community services and resources, both public and private.
This “Living in an American Community” section, and the “Life In The USA” site in general, does not give community information on specific cities or locations. You can find these on other Internet sites. A number of books on the market, frequently revised, list the most desirable places to live in the United States based on factors such as economic opportunity, safety, schools, etc.
