Best Places to Live in the US: A New Ranking

The latest U.S. News & World Report rankings are out for the best places to live in the U.S.


The report compares the 150 most populous metro areas in the U.S. based on affordability, quality of life, desirability and job market as well as air quality, access to health care, and weather, including natural disaster risk.


Number one on the list is Green Bay, Wisconsin.


Huntsville, Alabama, Raleigh/Durham, North Carolina, Boulder, Colorado, and two cities in Florida, Sarasota and Naples, made the top 10 list.


Interestingly, Green Bay also made the list for most affordable cities. Of course, you may have to buy warmer clothes.
