Wagswoofs – Two cities in Indiana have been recognized as among the top 50 cities in the United States, according to a report by Money.
Carmel, a city located in Hamilton County just north of Indianapolis, has once again made its mark as one of the best cities in the United States. Central Indiana Hoosiers are familiar with Carmel’s reputation, as it has consistently been recognized for its exceptional qualities. In fact, earlier this year, Livability named Carmel (along with Fishers) as one of the top 100 places to live in the country.
Carmel was ranked 19th out of the top 50 cities in the United States, according to Money’s list.
Money highlighted the Monon Trail as one of Carmel’s standout attractions, along with several exciting local sites. These include the Carmel Arts and Design district, the Hamilton County Center for the Performing Arts, and the renowned Christkindlmarkt, which has also received prestigious accolades.
According to Money, Jeffersonville, a city in southern Indiana, has been recognized as one of the best cities in the United States. Ranking 49th in the report, Jeffersonville is located across the river from Louisville.
Money magazine conducted a survey of cities in the United States with a population of at least 20,000 people. These cities were required to have a population that was at least 85% racially diverse and a median household income of at least 85% of the state median.
Money analyzed 1,370 cities by taking various factors into account, including cost of living, diversity, economic opportunity, education, fun and amenities, health and safety, housing market, income and personal finance, and quality of life.
After careful consideration, Money further examined the 125 cities that remained and eventually identified the top 50 cities in the country.
So, who ultimately claimed the top spot?
Atlanta, Georgia claimed the title of the best place to live in the United States.
