Austin Ranked #1 city to live in the US for 2017 by U.S. News

If you didn’t already know how great Austin was, we’ve got your rankings right here from U.S. News. Based on desirability, value, job market, quality of life and net migration, Austin scored a 7.8 out of 10 pushing out Denver, Colorado to the #2 spot and reigning as #1 for 2017. Noted for its wide range of residents ranging from students, young professionals to families and retirees, it’s no mystery that there’s something for everyone in Austin. With abundant options for outdoor activities in the many parks throughout Austin and a larger than life tailgate and game day spirit for the UT Austin Longhorns, Austin also hosts many festivals and events such as X Games and Formula One races at the Circuit of The Americas and the Austin City Limits and South by South West festivals. Some of the best things to do include a picnic or kite flying in Zilker Park, swimming in the Barton Springs Pool during the day and enjoying the vibrant night life and live music scene in downtown Austin.
