This year has obviously caused its own bag of issues. With the coronavirus uprooting many of our lives, we have had to reevaluate our lives. took this into mind when they created their list this year of the 100 Best Places To Live In America.

The rankings were based off many factors including economy, job opportunities and growth in each city.

No surprise to me, North Carolina made the list a FEW times. North Carolina is one of the more affordable states, and in this pandemic has been great based on the fact that we have the mountains, and the beach all within a 3 mile radius to Charlotte.

Here are the top 15 results:

  1. Fort Collins, CO
  2. Ann Arbor, MI
  3. Madison, WI
  4. Portland, ME
  5. Rochester, MN
  6. Asheville, NC
  7. Overland Park, KS
  8. Fargo, ND
  9. Durham, NC
  10. Sioux Falls, SD
  11. Columbus, OH
  12. Lincoln, NE
  13. Charlotte, NC
  14. Bismarck, ND
  15. Ames, IA


According to livability, Charlotte ranked where it did based on the six Fortune 500 companies call Charlotte home, the Charlotte Douglas International Airport, and the fact that we have  60 parks, 20 golf courses and seven farmers’ markets.
