money.com | realtor.com | September 18, 2018

The suburbs dominated this year’s list of top places to live in the country. Money magazine teamed with realtor.com® to identify its top picks of towns with populations of 50,000 or more. They factored in more than 135,000 data points, including economic health, public school performance, local amenities, housing, cost of living, and more.

“For someone who’s starting from scratch, this is a list of areas with great quality of life, healthy housing markets where affordability is important, and great overall community,” says Danielle Hale, realtor.com’s chief economist.

This year, Frisco, Texas, topped the list. The Dallas suburb also topped the U.S. Census Bureau list as America’s fastest-growing big city. The city has added an average of 37 new residents every day from 2016 to 2017. Its population has climbed 8.2 percent in one year and now totals 177,000.

Here are the cities that ranked top on this year’s list:

Frisco, Texas

Median household income : $117,642
