Seattle is 6th Best Place to Live In the Country

The U.S. News & World Report unveiled the Best Places to Live in 2017 and Seattle scored high at the number six spot! Oh yeah, upper-left USA!

This is how they determined the best places to live in 2017:

The 2017 Best Places to Live were determined in part by a public survey of thousands of individuals across the U.S. to find out what qualities they consider important in a home town. The methodology also factors in data from the United States Census Bureau, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Bureau of Labor Statistics, as well as U.S. News rankings of the Best High Schools and Best Hospitals.

Obviously we are not surprised by the numbers, but we miiiight be a bit biased ;) Take a look at the top 10:

  1. Austin, TX
  2. Denver, CO
  3. San Jose, CA
  4. Washington, DC
  5. Fayetteville, AR
  6. Seattle, WA
  7. Raleigh & Durham, NC
  8. Boston, MA
  9. Des Moines, IA
  10. Salt Lake City, UT

The numbers don't lie!
