Top cities for drivers or car owners

Detroit may be an attractive driving city.

Detroit may be an attractive driving city.

If you are a person who prefers to be behind the wheel instead of walking or taking public transportation, it's still possible to get around the city. Don't be afraid of gridlock and the chances of spending far too much on gasoline. There are plenty of cities around the country that can cater to your needs. If one of the following areas seem like a good spot to pick up your moving boxes and relocate, then contacting your moving company may be a good idea.

Tulsa, Oklahoma
Heading to the center of the country may get you a pretty inexpensive driving experience. Tulsa has some of the lowest gasoline prices in the country, according to NerdWallet. Combined with a low population level, it could make your driving experience go better than expected. This is even with a notable traffic jam amount per year. The pros may just outweigh the cons here, so it could be a good spot to consider for a move.

Detroit
Moving to Michigan will put you right in the thick of automotive country. The hub of it all is Detroit, which may be a great place for you if you plan to drive around. Because of the city's long history with automobiles, RelayRides notes that this city is actually a top driving destination. This is due to the city's construction being custom made to handle large numbers of vehicles on the road. This isn't something that is nearly as common as the Northeast, so it could be a good spot. Additionally, the city is recovering well from a difficult recession period, so jobs may be more prevalent.

Colorado Springs
There are also some great places for driving in the Rocky Mountains. Heading to Colorado Springs could work out well, despite the sizable amount of people in a small area. The gas prices in the city are lower than the national average for cities, according to NerdWallet. Having a car in this area is important anyway, as there's plenty to do outside of the city. Because the West is more spread out, you may need to drive to various attractions and venues. The opportunity of a long road trip could be fun, as well.

Chicago
The Windy City can be congested due to its high population, but it has some significant benefits. Chicago is a city laid out for driving, according to RelayRides. The city is near plenty of highways, so if you feel like going on a drive to the less populated areas of the Great Lakes Region, there is easy access in and out of the city. Plus, when staying in the city, you can check out the many sites that make Chicago one of the most unique metro areas in the country. The city has Lakeside Drive, which could be a great place to get behind the wheel and enjoy your surroundings.

Omaha, Nebraska
Another city in the center of the country that may be great for driving is Omaha. The city doesn't have a plethora of drivers, so you likely won't feel overwhelmed, according to NerdWallet. It is also important to note that traffic isn't that bad in the city. The traffic per year is only about 24 hours per year per driver, so you will likely not have many situations where your commute will delay you from getting to work. Like many cities in the list, Omaha also has some beautiful views. This can make your drive much more enjoyable, and think less about the daily grind.
