24/7 Wall St. just recently released their 'Top 50 Best Cities" list and Danbury does it again!

24/7Wallst.com dug deep into each category to make sure their data was as accurate as possible. The categories chosen were, crime, demography, economy, education, environment, health, housing, infrastructure, and leisure. There are 12 paragraphs in the article going into explicit detail on each of the categories and their methodology, which I won't put you to sleep with. The top 5 best cities to live in were:

1. Broomfield, Colorado                                                                                                  2. Meridian, Idaho                                                                                                              3. Richardson, Texas                                                                                                        4. John's Creek, Georgia                                                                                                  5. Lee's Summit, Missouri

Danbury, CT., came in at a very respectable #16. Last year in the same in-depth survey, Danbury ranked #2 but according to the NewTimes lost that ranking for 2016 because of the city's high cost of living, which is 30% higher that the national average. So why did Danbury do so well in this detailed and comprehensive survey? The cultural and leisure activity score kept Danbury in the 'Top 20!' You must admit that Danbury is very culturally diverse. Of the 10 restaurants that are within walking distance of Western CT State University's downtown campus, 6 of those are ethnic restaurants.
