Not So Breaking News: Fayetteville is One of the Best Places to Live

Fayetteville ArkansasEarlier this month, U.S. News and World Report released a list of the top places to live in the United States. Our home town of Fayetteville, Arkansas was named as the third best place to live just after Denver, Colorado, and Austin, Texas. Being ranked in the top three U.S. cities created quite a buzz. It’s no surprise that Fayetteville is a wonderful and amazing town, but the fact that Fayetteville’s splendor was recognized on a national level and beat out several other high-profile cities caught everyone’s attention.

The list factored in desirability, value, the job market, quality of life, and net migration to give each city a ranking based on a scale of 1 to 10.  Fayetteville earned an overall score of 7.5 out of 10, while Denver earned a 7.8 and Austin came in at 7.7. But despite earning the bronze, Fayetteville outranked both of the top 2 cities in quality of life and value. In fact, Fayetteville had the highest value (9.1) of any of the cities named in the best places to live in the U.S.

There are certainly plenty of reasons to love Fayetteville, but this list forgot to include one of the big ones. Fayetteville is one of the best cities for people who love the outdoors!
