7 Other Flints You Can Move To If You Don’t Like This One
If you love telling people you're from Flint, but don't have what it takes to make it in the 810 -- maybe one of these 7 other places named Flint is right for you.
Flint, Michigan is great, but it takes a certain kind of person to stick it out here. If you're not that kind of person -- no hard feelings. You gave it a shot, right? That's more than a lot of people can say, and at least you'll always get "that look" when you tell people you lived here. That "oh, are you okay?" look with a touch of "I better not f--- with this person" that you get when one of the uninitiated dares to ask where you're from. You know the one. It goes something like this:
If you've decide you want to leave Flint, we can't blame you. Times are tough here right now. But maybe you really love saying "I live in Flint," or you're too lazy to remember a new name of a city. Either way, we have good news -- there are a bunch of other Flints you can move to right now!
Other Flints? I know, it sounds like something from season 2 of 'The Flash,' but I'm not talking about traveling to another dimension or an alternate timeline. Hell, most of them are right here in the U-S of A. Most of them even have drinkable water!
Without further ado, here is a list of the other Flints and what they have to offer:
This Flint is a small unincorporated farming community, that has three separate baptists churches, just in case you like variety. They also have a Flint River, but it's probably cleaner than ours. Outside of that, Flint, GA boasts scenic drives, some abandoned general stores, and barns. It's also a part of Camilla, a city which with more than a few skeletons in the closet due to the 1868 race riot/massacre that occurred there.
Yet another unincorporated community named Flint lies just over 100 miles southeast of Dallas, Texas. This Flint was actually named after a landowner named Robert P. Flynt, but the postmaster misspelled his name and the rest, as they say, is history. Unlike some of the other Flints on this list, this one actually has some restaurants, gas stations, a Dollar General, even their own post office.
Unfortunately, our rival state has their own Flint in the form of an unincorporated community north of Columbus. The good news is that this Flint is a 20 minute drive from the 15th largest city in the United States, which is also where Rock on the Range happens. The bad news -- it's in Ohio.
Located just a 2 hour drive southwest of this Flint is, yet another small unincorporated community that goes by the name of Flint. While there doesn't appear to be much there outside of houses and farms, they do have their own gun shop. So there's that.
Flint, West Virginia
You won't find much info out there on Flint, West Virginia. Hell, you may not even be able to get there by car based on this view of it. The unincorporated community, located in the Appalachian region, does, however, have train tracks that run through it, an unnamed road, a river that runs through it, and a very brief Wikipedia page. Therefore, it made our list.
Flint, Flintshire, Wales, United Kingdom
With a population of almost 13,000, the town of Flint is the third largest in its county. Flint actually has the oldest town charter in Wales, dating back to 1284. This Flint has three high schools, its own railway station, a soccer team, and a ton of historic sites. Most notably, Flint Castle, which was built in 1277.
Flint Island, Pacific Ocean
Part of the Line Islands in the central Pacific Ocean, Flint is an uninhabited Island that belongs to Kiribati. Discovered by Ferdinand Magellan in 1521, it was originally named Tibournes (Spanish for "sharks") and later refered to as one of the two "Islas Infortunadas," which means unfortunate islands. This beautiful little death trap is mostly covered in coconut palms, so if you want to live out the rest of your life like Tom Hanks in 'Cast Away,' grab a volleyball and bring your ass to Flint Island!
There you go. Flint -- love it or leave it... and then move to another one.
