The U.S. is a large and diverse country and there is a town to suit every family. The question however is how to narrow it down and find the city or state that’s right for your family?
If your family could settle anywhere in the States, where would that be? The states that offer the best quality of life are usually the ones that offer everything people yearn for: great health care, low crime rates, good business environment, inclusiveness, a clean environment and lots to do.
A study provided by US News & World Report listed the top places to live in the USA in terms of quality of life. In first place for the past three years was Austin, Texas. Austin was considered one of the best places to be because of the growing job market, high quality of life and good value for money spent. It was similarly voted to be the best place to start a small business in the United States.
In order to qualify for the US News and & World Report list, studies were first done through sources such as the Department of Labor and Census Bureau. The report also gained information from 2500 surveys around the US. After combining and comparing the data for each of the 50 states, the top 25 were selected for the study.
Here are 10 of the top 25 Best Places to Live in the US;
- Austin, Texas
- Denver, Colorado
- Colorado Springs, Colorado
- Fayetteville, Arkansas
- Des Moines, Iowa
- Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota
- San Francisco, California
- Portland, Oregon
- Seattle, Washington
- Raleigh & Durham, North Carolina
