Lancaster, PA was ranked 1st overall in the “Best Small Cities to Live List.” It was ranked in the 99th percentile and was ranked Top 10 in quality of life.

WalletHub also revealed the affordability was one of the top things people sought in smaller cities.

According to WalletHub “One of the best perks of living in a city with a relatively small population is affordability. According to the Economic Policy Institute, the cost of living for a two-parent, two-child family in Hanford, California, for instance, would be $6,516 per month, compared with more than double at $13,251 for the same family in San Francisco.”

WalletHub compared more than 1,300 U.S. cities with populations between 25,000 and 100,000 based on 43 key indicators of livability. They range from housing costs to school-system quality to restaurants per capita.
