Two area cities have made a top 50 list of best places to live in the south.
24/7 Wall St., a financial news and commentary website that covers the stock market, industries and government policy on the economy, ranked the city of Suwanee No. 32, while the city of Braselton was ranked No. 35.
“While there are desirable places to live all across the country, many people choose to live in the South — a region known for its cuisine and warm weather,” the report by 24/7 Wall St. states. “The South is growing rapidly, attracting Americans from other regions with its low cost of living and mild winters. The region has much to offer, and many of its cities stand out as especially good places to live.”
To identify the best cities to live in the south, 24/7 Wall St. used data from the Census Bureau, FBI and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to create a weighted index of 25 measures across four categories — affordability, economy, quality of life and community. Cities in the 16 states in the south region, as designated by the U.S. Census Bureau, were considered.
