American Cities With the Best Quality of Life

US News has dropped its annual “best places to live” list, and as far as quality of living goes, Ann Arbor, Michigan, takes the crown.

The site notes that Ann Arbor’s mix of urban and rural, with a charming Main Street and nearby university, make it “a city of contrasts,” ideal for both the sporty and smart.

To rank locations, US News pulled data from internal sources, as well as government entities—including the FBI, the US Department of Labor, and the Census Bureau—then weighed factors like crime, commute time, and quality of health care and education.
