5 best cities in the United States to live in.

January 10, 2020 Uncategorized

When deciding where to put down roots, many factors are in the eye of the beholder, such as climate, politics, or proximity to extended family.

Other aspects are coveted by nearly everybody: affordable housing, access to well-paying jobs, a low cost of living, good schools, and quality healthcare. They then categorized the data into five indexes for each city — job market, value, quality of life, desirability, and net migration — to definitively rank these major metro areas.Scores for “value,” a blend of annual household income and cost of living, and “quality of life,” which accounts for crime, college readiness, commute, and other factors, are included below on a 10-point scale, as well as the city’s population and average annual salary.

1. Austin, Texas

The capital of Texas gains about 150 new residents daily, many seeking out the city’s “music, outdoor spaces, and cultural institutions,” said a local expert.

Austin is beloved for its live music scene and is host to some of the country’s biggest music and culture festivals, including South by Southwest and Austin City Limits. The city was nicknamed “Silicon hills” in the 1990’s for its status as “among the top areas for venture capital investment in the country.”

Population: 2,000,590

Average annual salary: $51,840

Quality of life: 7.3

2. Denver, Colorado

While Denver sits at the base of the Rocky Mountains, it’s not considered a mountain town since it takes at least an hour to get to the Rockies for snowboarding and ski activities, a local expert explained. At 5,279 feet, the Mile High City lives up to its name in more ways than one: In 2012, Colorado legalized recreational marijuana, paving the way for a flourishing and lucrative cannabis industry.

Population: 2,798,684

Average annual salary: $57,400

Quality of life: 7.0

3. Colorado Springs, Colorado

Colorado Springs is “booming, with new residences popping up alongside quality schools, parks, and cultural attractions,” touts a local expert. The city is just an hour drive from Denver and in close proximity to Aspen and Vail’s world-class ski resorts. Military jobs influence Colorado Springs’ culture and economy, but jobs are also available in medical innovation and tech.

Population: 698,595

Average annual salary: $50,050

Quality of life: 7.0

4. Fayetteville, Arkansas

Fayetteville sits among the Ozark Mountains and is home to the University of Arkansas’ flagship campus. The surrounding area of northwest Arkansas is home to headquarters for 500 companies  including Walmart and Tyson Foods. The city has experienced immense growth, according to a local expert, who said the region has evolved “from a small town to a center of higher education, culture, commerce, and entrepreneurial-ism.”

Population: 514,166

Average annual salary: $45,830

Quality of life: 7.5

5. Des Moines, Iowa

Des Moines is drawing millennial and young families alike for its “one-of-a-kind shops, locally-owned restaurants, and hip bars” as well as its historical residences in quiet neighborhoods, said a local expert. Home to more than 80 insurance companies including giants Allied Insurance and Well-mark Blue Cross Blue Shield, the job market is thriving.

Population: 623,113

Average annual salary: $50,600

Quality of life: 7.0
