Charlotte Ranked In The Top 21 Best Places To Live In America


Charlotte was ranked on yet another ‘top list’. published their “Top 100 Best Places To Live” report and ranked us #21 in the nation. We came in just behind Omaha (#20) and just ahead of Laramie, WY (#22) and Durham (#23).

Here’s how Livability described the Queen City:

The North Carolina city is one of the country’s fastest-growing cities, home to nine Fortune 500 companies, and is the nation’s second-largest banking center, behind New York City.

Charlotte is home to the world’s sixth-busiest international airport, Charlotte Douglas International, boasts a high-speed light rail known as the LYNX and is in close proximity to several major interstates, all of which helped the city score high in the infrastructure category.

Additionally, Charlotte scored high in amenities thanks to its more than 60 parks, 20 golf courses and seven farmers markets. 

While the #21 spot out of thousands of towns and cities across America is certainly impressive, the list also ranked our sister city Raleigh as the #2 destination in America, citing its top-ranked universities, stellar job market, and recreation.
