North Carolina City Ranks Top 5 Most Desirable City To Live In USA
I have some good news for those of us in the Charlotte area. We finally ranked above Raleigh in something good. Our city ranks top 5 in the most desirable cities to live in the USA.
According to a survey done by Empower, Charlotte ranked 4th in the cities most working adults want to live in. The top 3 were Denver, San Diego, and New York.
For most working adults the cost of living was at the top of the list when choosing a place to live. The safety of a city also came into play. Wait and New York came in third?
Charlotte also ranked very highly with retirees. Many retired folks choose the city as a place to settle in their later lives. It’s affordable, relatively safe, and offers proximity to a lot of things to do.
When it comes to the most affordable cities for working adults smaller towns ruled. Sioux Falls, South Dakota was number one, followed by Springfield, Illinois, and Witchita Kansas.
The report included a survey of 800 U.S. workers and 200 U.S. retirees to gather their perspectives on the best cities to live in and what qualities make those cities the most appealing. It was conducted in July 2023 by Fractl on behalf of Empower.
