For the second straight year, Colorado Springs – Olympic City USA, is the most desirable place to live in the nation, according to U.S. News & World Report. The survey ranks desirability based on a survey of where residents would live if given the choice of the nation’s 125 largest metro areas. It shares the top spot with Honolulu, Portland and San Francisco.
“Those of us who call Colorado Springs home have long known that this is a highly desirable place to live,” said Mayor John Suthers. “The fact that people outside the region and state have started to take note is a testament to the momentum that exists in our city today. There’s no doubt that our natural scenery plays a major role, but so does our commitment to building a city that matches that incredible scenery. “
Colorado Springs again topped other major cities including San Diego (No. 5), Seattle (No. 7), Austin (#9) and Denver (#10). The full list is available here: https://realestate.usnews.com/real-estate/slideshows/the-25-most-desirable-places-to-live-in-the-us.
“It’s said that if you build a desirable place to visit, you’ll build a desirable place to live,” said Doug Price, President of Visit Colorado Springs. “From our city’s very start, General Palmer understood the value of desirability and building a place people wanted to visit and ultimately, live. For decades, our stunning natural scenery, western hospitality and dedication to health and wellness have drawn travelers from across the globe.
Once people experience Colorado Springs firsthand, it’s easy to see why they would consider Olympic City USA the most desirable place to call their home. After a visit to the area, I myself made the decision to call this beautiful place home.
As we look forward to these world-class additions and expansions, we see General Palmer’s visions for our community continue to manifest, drawing both travelers and residents to experience the wonders of our city and the Pikes Peak region.”
Desirability is an element of U.S. News & World Report’s annual “Best Places to Live” report. Colorado Springs was ranked the No. 3 “Best Place to Live” in April, and No. 2 in 2018.
