The United States is one of the largest countries in the world with almost 330 million people. With so many great places to live, which are the most livable in terms of budget and quality of life?
Livability depends on many factors including
weather, job market, atmosphere, affordability, education, health care and much
more. When a city can check off many of these boxes, it is likely a place people
love to live.
Here are five of the most livable

from all over the country are flocking to Boise for several different reasons.

the year, has a solid sense of community, and a strong economy and job

incredibly attractive to many people. This is especially true for millenials,
as both men and women say a high cost of living will prevent them from moving to a certain city. The city has a healthy population of over 225,000 people so it’s neither
a small nor boring town by any means.
Palm Beach, Florida
If you are looking for a city with
great weather all year and a relatively relaxed, small-town feel, Palm Beach

can help you sell your home quickly.

to be. Job markets are strong, weather is unpredictable but pleasant, and you have
easy access to some of the most gorgeous scenery on the planet. Commutes are relatively

quickest growing cities in the USA, as its population is creeping up to 1
