A new listof the best cities to live in America has been published, and to no surprise— Texas cities rank in the Top 25! We have five of the best cities, according to Niche.com, with our closest competitor being California, with four.
Niche.com studied available data and user reviews to determined these rankings. The stats for the 228 cities on the list looked at higher education rates from the U.S. Census Bureau and Niche's own grades for cost of living, diversity, crime and safety, commute times, jobs, weather, nightlife, outdoor activities, health and fitness, public schools, and family friendliness.
Plano takes No. 7 on the list, with a Niche grade of A-plus and nearly 500 user reviews. The only areas where the suburb receives lower than an A are in outdoor activities, weather, cost of living, and crime and safety, though its number of violent and property crimes is still way below those of the nation as a whole.
Richardson is No. 12, with a grade that's slightly lower than Plano in health and fitness but curiously higher for outdoor activities. According to Niche, both are excellent for families and diversity.
No. 6 The Woodlands, just outside of Houston, is ranked the BEST in Texas. Its crime and safety score is mysteriously absent, but the public schools, jobs outlook, and family friendliness all pull in A-plus grades to make up for it. Even the city's well-known humid weather is overlooked — or at least the 229 users who've reviewed the city!
Affordable,entrepreneur-friendlyRound Rock gets the No. 16 spot, drawing in high scores for everything but crime and safety and ... cost of living. And neighboring Austin comes in at No. 22, taking a bigger hit in those same two categories (theft seems to be a major problem in the Capital City). But more than 1,000 people are willing to declare their love for Austin, which is by far the most reviews in the top 25.
