I see a lot of these questions in different forms and sometimes you just have to wonder how many of these questions are posted by testers...
My recommendation to you is to drive the different areas in your city that interest you and compare what like. YOU will have to make the distinction of what's "best" for you. If you really want to know what's going on in an area, visit multiple times at different times of the day. Ask your friends/co-workers/family where they live and what they think.
Best of luck.
