Why Austin is no longer one of the top 10 “best places to live” in the US

Austin

U.S. News released their list of the best places to live in the United States 2022-2023, and Austin didn’t make the top 10.

Previously ranked No. 5 in 2021, Austin is now No. 13. In 2020, the city was ranked at No. 3. According to the report, Austin’s housing market and cost of living affected the city’s ranking. “The rising cost of living has taken its toll on many who would like to live in the Austin metro area, and as such it has become less desirable, as reflected in the survey asking U.S. residents where they would prefer to live.”

The report noted that Austin’s music events like SXSW and ACL Fest and of course, dogs also influenced the ranking. “As the live music capital of the world, Austin serenades its residents with live music in the airport terminal, on the downtown streets and at about 200 venues in the area.”

Although the city dropped in ranking in the U.S. list, it remains No. 1 in the Best Places to Live in Texas report. Dallas-Fort Worth came in at No. 2 and Houston was ranked at No. 3.
