Arizona might think they live in the

best place in the state after all you

wouldn't spend your life somewhere you

truly didn't love right not always in

fact a Pew Research study determined

that almost half of Americans would

rather live somewhere else and they do

now well if you're in one of the Arizona

cities were about to highlight odds

golden easy analyze the best cities in

our first stop on our tour of Arizona's

best city starts in Marana well lots of

people in Arizona might be like are you

kidding me you look at the data it's

actually great place to live

crime is the temp lowest in the state

and they have the third best public

schools in Arizona Plus Marana residents

are in the top 10 for income levels our

next best city to live in Arizona is

Queen Creek the unemployment rate here

is staggeringly low it's relatively safe

and Queen Creek and the housing market

is solid and if you like so many days

this is your place it's a kind of place

where you can just chill yo however the

public schools aren't as good as they

are in other districts so your kids

might not be getting the best education

continuing our best city tour of Arizona

brings us to Litchfield Park this

awesome city ranks 11th and income

levels 5th in school spending and there

are hardly any vacant homes that means

lots of people want to live here

crime is fairly low and public schools

are also solid

if you live in Litchfield Park you're

probably straight chillin if you're

looking for a great place to live you

might want to consider Fountain Hills

believe it or not Fountain Hills

family's command some of the highest

incomes in the state and people here are

pretty cheerful

Plus each Fountain Hills kid gets about

a thousand more each than the state

average in the school it sure beats some

of the other middle-of-nowhere places in

Arizona where you could call home that's

for sure

Chandler comes in as the 6th best city

to live in Arizona while there are tons

of places in Arizona where people are

pretty backwoods you won't find that

here where residents are earn on average

the 3rd highest incomes overall

Chandler's seventh lowest for crime -

however the bad side is commute times

there aren't too many other places in

Arizona will you'll sit in the car log

or going to and from work despite the

fact that many people haven't considered

that before this is actually a great

place to live then ways are comfortable

here and the housing markets doing just

fine and it seems that just about

everyone here is in a great mood all the

time no surprises here that Oro Valley

is one of the best places to live in the

state Oro Valley takes number one in

three categories

it's the safest place to live the

unemployment rates one of the lowest in

the state and surprisingly commute times

aren't that bad if you don't have a job

in Oro Valley it's because you simply

refuse to work where's the third best

city to live in Arizona

you might be surprised to hear it but

it's Gilbert not only is Gilbert one of

the most beautiful cities in the state

it has great schools and low crime plus

it's not very crowded and if you want to

get away to a bigger city it's easy yeah

people in Gilbert have it made this

might not be a very popular opinion but

when you look at the data Scottsdale is

the second best city you can live in

Arizona people here are really

successful in folks in Scottsdale earn

pretty decent salaries thank you very

much that means you can retire a lot

earlier plus you don't have to watch

your back all the time sex crimes really

low and where's the best city to live in

Arizona that would be Paradise Valley

surprised households in Paradise Valley

are in the top ten when it comes to

average incomes and not only do Paradise

Valley folks earn great salaries but

most of them are employed plus you have

a ton of stuff to do within a short

drive factor and lots of fun low crime

and lots of friendly people and you've

got one hell of a place to call home if

you live in Paradise Valley or one of

the other Arizona cities we mentioned


You certainly have a reason to smile
