Do You Know The Best Places To Live In The US?
Here Is Information That Might Help
Data from an article in the Washington Post may provide answers to that question. The study ranked every county in the United States from best to worst.
The rankings used an index of six criteria correlated to scenery and climate. Researchers applied this “natural amenities index” against each county in the adjacent 48 states.
That means a total of 3,111 were in the study.
Sorry, data for Hawaii and Alaska was not included in the research.
No Surprise Here
Well, guess what? The top 10 counties, out of the 3,111 counties studied are in California. Ventura County CA ranked number 1. By the way, most of those counties are on – or just west of – the San Andreas fault line. Just saying it might be something to ponder??
The top 200 counties ranked as the best places to live in the US are on the west coast states and Southwest region of the US. Exceptions Are In Southern Florida and Wyoming
There isn’t a single county in the Midwest, northeast, east coast or southeast ranked in the top 200. Perhaps further validation of why people retire to the southwest region of the US.
How do the counties in Arizona rank? Please note, we live in Tucson AZ and believe it is a wonderful area of Arizona. There are 15 counties in Arizona. Of those, 12 ranked in the top 200 counties identified as the best places to live in the US.
A Few More Thoughts
Where is your top place to live in the US? The pattern of the results from the study are an indicator of what people view as a best place to live in US. There is likely no surprise that many Baby Boomers are moving from across the US to Arizona.
Most have lived and worked in the areas of the United States not in the top 200. After years of work, they look forward to more leisure time in one of the best places to live in the US. They want a place to enjoy a new lifestyle and purse their interests.
Two criteria not included in the study were cost of living and winter climate. These two criteria will influence any decision on the best place to live in America. And don’t forget about taxes. Arizona is considered one of the top ten low tax states in the US.
Including these factors into identifying the best places to live makes Southern Arizona a top contender. Our clients are from California say Arizona’s lower cost of living is attractive to them.
