Thinking about moving somewhere? Not sure where yet?
Last November 2015, the Wall Street Journal published the results of a study called – America’s 50 Best Cities to Live.
To select the top cities, they used U.S. Census Bureau data focused on nine major categories: crime, demography, economy, education, environment, health, housing, infrastructure, and leisure.
In this Blog Series, we will share with you the Top 10 Cities from this study.

A suburb of Milwaukee, Waukesha is America’s eighth best place to live. Originally a spa town, people flocked to Waukesha in the late 19th century for its clean spring water and resorts. The Great Lakes city has a humid continental climate with mild summers and moderate rainfall. Today, people migrate to Waukesha — its population increased by 14.0% in the past decade, 3.4 percentage points ahead of the national growth rate — for its relatively cheap estate and low crime rates. Last year, Waukesha reported about 127 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, close to two-thirds fewer than the national violent crime rate.
