Austin ranks No. 1 on national “Best Places To Live” list for second year
Research shows where you live can have a great impact on your health, well-being and overall happiness. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce that, for the second consecutive year, Austin ranks No. 1 on U.S News & World Report’s “Best Places to Live” list.
“The capital of Texas continues to receive interest from the tech industry, leading to a strong job market and high desirability among Americans as a place to live,” the magazine states. “Aside from the job opportunities, new residents are attracted to Austin for its eclectic arts and music scene.”
To formulate its rankings, U.S. News sifted through data on 125 metro areas, including indices for quality of life, the job market, the value of living there, and people’s desire to live there.
Austin was the only Texas city in the report’s top 10. Also representing the Lone Star State were San Antonio and Dallas-Fort Worth, ranking No. 14 and No. 18 respectively.
Austin’s top national ranking in the “Best Places to Live” list is one of the latest kudos the city has earned. Austin was the only city in Texas to rank on National Geographic’s list of the Happiest Cities in the United States.
