Fayetteville Ranks Fourth Among Best Places to Live,
Marking the Sixth Year the City has Been in the Top Ten
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.—For the sixth year in a row, Fayetteville has been selected as one of U.S. News & World Report’s top 10 Best Places to Live in the U.S., ranking at No. 4.
The publication uses data from trusted sources, including the U.S. Census Bureau, the FBI, the U.S. Department of Labor and U.S. News's own internal resources to create indexes on the job market, housing affordability, quality of life, desirability and net migration to rank 150 cities across the country. Since 2016, Fayetteville has appeared among the top 10 in this ranking.
“I am extremely proud that Fayetteville has once again been ranked among the top 10 best places to live,” said Mayor Lioneld Jordan. “This recognition by a national publication confirms what those of us who live here are already well aware of: that Fayetteville is a great place to live, work, and play. It is a fine tribute to our wonderful community of people who care so very much and work together to make ours a model city for the rest of the nation.”
