Des Moines is One of Only Three American Cities With Good Jobs, Affordable Housing, and High Quality of Life
If you had to move, you'd probably want to find a city with a strong job market, cheap places to live, and things like good weather, low crime, and lots of restaurants and things to do.
I'm going to make it easy for you: Only three cities in the entire country meet all of those criteria. And they're all pretty close to each other in the Midwest.
A new study found that the only cities with good jobs, affordable housing, and a high quality of life are Omaha, Nebraska, Des Moines, Iowa, and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
There are a few cities that have two of the three:
- Cincinnati, Ohio is affordable and has good quality of life, but the job market is bad.
- Houston, Texas is affordable and has a good job market, but it got bad scores for quality of life.
- Boise, Seattle, San Francisco, and Portland all have a strong quality of life and great job markets, but the housing isn't affordable.
