Cody and Riverton Listed Among USA Today’s Top 50 Cities
There's a brand new list of the top cities to live in that's been shared by USA Today and two of Wyoming's cities made the cut.
Of all the best of lists put out each year, this is one of the most well known. USA Today did a breakdown of population, household income, unemployment and growth. They named both Cody and Riverton as being among the top 50 cities to live in anywhere in America.
Riverton came in at #37 with a very low unemployment rate of 3.1% and a 4.4% growth rate. USA Today praised Riverton for being one of America's most affordable cities with relatively no commute time.
Cody was way up the USA Today list landing as the 18th best city to live in. Here's a USA Today quote on why Cody is such a great place to live:
Cody is one of two Wyoming cities to rank among the best places to live in America, and its residents are among the least likely to face serious financial hardship.
Can't argue with that kind of logic. They were also amazing at Cody's 1% unemployment rate. I would add that Cody's proximity to Yellowstone National Park doesn't hurt either.
I normally don't care about top or best of lists, but in this case it's quite an honor to see two Wyoming cities get mentioned among the top cities in America.
