Texas Puts One Small City Among Best in the Nation [LIST]
One of the greatest perks of a small city is the affordability.
Growing up, I lived in a very small town. My high school graduating class was 48 people and many of them were classmates I had gone to school with since Kindergarten. Although everyone always seemed to be in everyone else's business, I loved that small town feel.
Now, as an adult, I enjoy having more of a city feel. I even had the opportunity to live in New York City. Don't be fooled though, larger cities aren't always the best option.
Recently, WalletHub took a look at the Best Small Cities in America.
The financial website examined more than 1,200 cities in the nation with a population between 25,000 and 100,000. They looked at housing costs, the quality of the school systems, restaurants and more. With so many cities on the list, WalletHub broke their list down in to percentiles.
One city in the Lone Star State landed in top one percent.
Southlake, Texas which is in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, took one of these top spots. Not only does this city rank in the top 50 for "economic health" in small cities, but Southlake also put up a number three ranking for "affordability." They also boast some of the highest home-ownership rates in the nation.
