Austin named No. 1 “Best Place To Live In” in U.S. for 2018
For the second year in a row, Austin ranks No. 1 on U.S News & World Report’s “Best Places to Live” list.
The editors write: “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. Aside from the job opportunities, new residents are attracted to Austin for its eclectic arts and music scene.”
To come up with its rankings, U.S. News analyzed 125 metro areas based on 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, though San Antonio and Dallas-Fort Worth did the Lone Star State proud, coming in at No. 14 and No. 18, respectively.
With research showing that where you live can have a major impact on your health, happiness and well-being, it’s great to see the data confirming Austin’s desirability across different generations.
