For people looking to Internet rankings when searching for their next place to live, 24/7 Wall St. produces some solid information. As opposed to some list-makers, they actually do real research with scientific data and come up with interesting findings.
They recently reviewed data on the 550 American cities with populations of 65,000 or more (measured by the U.S. Census Bureau). They looked at a range of variables, including crime rates, employment growth, access to restaurants/attractions, educational attainment, and housing affordability, and they identified America’s 50 Best Cities to Live.
Two Texas cities made the 24/7 Wall St. list, and both are in DFW. In the top five, Richardson, and in the top ten, North Richland Hills. Intrigued? So were we. Read on to see why they chose these two places for their list.
