Top 100 Best Places to Live

Big cities tend to get all the love. We here at Livability know that there are great stories to be told in smaller places, too. Our ranking of the top 100 best places to live focuses on small to mid-sized cities and what makes them great places to live and work. Many of these are towns that don’t usually get their fair share of the limelight. We’re happy to shine some in their direction. We worked with trusted partners, stellar advisors, and the best public and private data sources to develop our ranking. The cities on the list excelled in our criteria. These towns are places where residents are able to take full advantage of a wide variety of amenities and offerings -- everything from parks and museums to different commuting options to hospitals. Spend some time getting to know them and when it comes time for your next move, maybe you'll think small.
