Many compare Central New York and the Mohawk Valley to "Hotel California" from the Eagles- You can check in anytime you'd like, but you can never leave. When people from the Utica and Rome area move, where are they moving to?

Many Central New Yorkers will live here their entire life. There is nothing wrong with that choice. Maybe they get away for a few years, but a common theme we constantly hear is how people want to come back. Why? This region of New York is home.

Let's be real for a moment though. It's totally understandable that some people are in need of a change of scenery or found better job opportunities elsewhere. That means they're packing their things and leaving the Utica and Rome area. But where are they going? Are they staying in New York? Are they moving to Florida? Luckily, we live in a day and age where information is easily accessible at our fingertips. We have possible answers where people are moving too.
