Texas Wins Big in Best Places to Live Rankings

There is no doubt that Texas is the greatest state to call home, and what certainly makes that statement much more tantalizing is that all of the major cities in Texas ranked in the top 25 of the 2017 Best Places to Live survey results put out by U.S. News and World Report.

The 2017 Best Places to Live Rankings included 100 of the United States largest metro areas and was based on affordability, job prospects and quality of life.  Also taken into consideration were prior poll results on best healthcare and best education options.  Final results were a conjunction of these facts collected along with a survey taken across thousands of people in the U.S. asking what they find the most critical when looking for a new city to dwell in.

Here is a list of the top cities in Texas to make the Best Places to Live list:

#1 - Austin, Texas: 7.8 Overall Score, 7.3 Quality of Life, 7.3 Value

#15 - Dallas-Fort Worth, TX: 7.1 Overall Score, 6.5 Quality of Life, 7.4 Value
