Phoenix falls in U.S. News’ 2019 ‘Best Places to Live’ rankings
Phoenix remains one of the best places to live in the U.S., according to a prestigious annual ranking — but it saw its placement fall a bit.
U.S. News & World Report today released its 2019 Best Places to Live rankings, and the Valley landed at No. 26. That’s a drop from No. 19 on last year’s list.
In its deep dive into Phoenix data, the report notes that the city’s average commute time is 26.2 minutes — and now that rents and home prices are escalating quickly, the region’s median home price is $234,183, surpassing the national average of $227,025.
Tucson also saw its standing slip on the annual rankings, falling from No. 67 in 2018 to No. 76 on the 2019 list.
Phoenix fared better in U.S. News’ 2019 Best Places to Retire rankings, which were published last fall. The Valley also is home to the two best high schools in the country, according to U.S. News’ best high schools rankings from last year.
