Every year, RelocateAmerica researches to find the best places to live in America. The list is narrowed down to the top 100 based on nominations and issues that are deemed the most important to relocating consumers and homeowners for the upcoming year.

This year, the sites were selected based on their positions for economic recovery using factors such as employment, education, community leadership and overall quality of life. Local residents, business and community leaders were permitted to participate this year to determine which of the top 100 would become the top ten.

This year, Augusta ranks No. 7. Reasons for the ranking vary from the proximity to health care, low-cost for retirees, “sophisticated amenities," recent construction and development and much more. A detailed overview of why Augusta offers the hospitality the South is famous for is on the web site at, along with the other 99 in the top 10.

The top ten in order are Austin, Texas; Grand Rapids, Mich.; Boulder, Colo.; Raleigh, N.C.; Dallas, Texas; Greenville, S.C.; Augusta, Ga.; Boise, Idaho; Omaha, Neb.; and Oklahoma City, Okla.
