Austin #1 Best Place to Live in U.S.

Read time: 2 minutes
Austinites can list plenty of reasons why our city is great but if you ask them to make a list of 31 reasons it might take little longer. It turns out WalletHub, a site dedicated to consumers making better financial decisions, made that list for all of us. After crunching the data, the results proved Austin reigns supreme as the number one choice from over 60 cities across America.

Why is Austin #1 Best City to Live in America?

The method of their research considered the best cities in America for families, pet lovers, recreation, healthy living, job market, and affordability, as well as many others. To rank the best places to live in the U.S., the comprehensive study went far beyond the simple opinion polls to arrive at a simple consensus and considered large cities with populations over 300,000 along with statistics on livability, education, health, the local economy & taxes.

Based on the in-depth analysis of the total 31 metrics, their distinguished panel of professors and economists concluded what Austinites already know. Not only is Austin the best city to live in America, but for that matter, the best city in Texas, and by a wide margin. With a total of 8 Texas cities making the list, Houston came in next all the way down at number 29 and Dallas dead last at number 50.

8 Texas Cities Ranked in the Top 60 Best Places to Live in U.S.

  1. Austin, TX – Overall Rank #1
  2. Corpus Christi, TX – Overall Rank #26
  3. Houston, TX – Overall Rank #29
  4. Arlington, TX – Overall Rank #33
  5. El Paso, TX – Overall Rank #38
  6. San Antonio, TX – Overall Rank #43
  7. Fort Worth, TX – Overall Rank #47
  8. Dallas, TX – Overall Rank #50

While both industries and individuals across America continue to cast a longing gaze at the financial health of Texas, it’s nice to be singled out from the crowd. After all who doesn’t appreciate compliments from an expert?
