Cincinnati is one of the best places in the nation to live, according to a new ranking from U.S. News & World Report. The Queen City is No. 49 on the 2018 Best Places to Live list, which ranks the nation’s 125 largest metropolitan areas based on job market, affordability, quality of life, desirability and new migration.
“When deciding on a place to settle down, it’s important to understand that where a person lives can impact their well-being,” Kim Castro, executive editor at U.S. News, said in a statement. “U.S. News created the Best Places to Live to highlight areas across the country that have the characteristics residents are looking for, including steady job growth and affordability. The top-ranked places are areas where citizens can feel the most fulfilled socially, physically and financially.”
Cincinnati wasn’t the top-ranked city in Ohio. That honor went to Columbus, which sits at No. 36 on the list. Dayton came in at No. 82, followed by Toledo (No. 102), Cleveland (104) and Youngstown (108).
