Top 10 Moving Destinations in 2012

Last December we blogged about U.S. migration trends as reported by Forbes. The blog, "A Visual Look at American Migration and Relocation in 2011", included an interactive map that visually showed where people were moving to. Similar to 2011, the relocation trends of Americans continue to focus on the south, notably cities in warmer climates. Only 3 of the top 10 in 2012 are in colder climates: Denver, Seattle and Chicago.

The 2012 report was compiled with data from our favorite truck rental company, Penske Truck Rental. As the third-largest truck rental company (for residential consumers) in the U.S., the data provided by Penske is a reliable measure of the U.S. as a whole.
