Here Are The Single Most Affordable Cities In The U.S.
We’ve all heard the horror stories coming from some of the country’s most beautiful cities: folks can’t afford the cost of living and are commuting for hours every day just to be able to pay rent. While it’s easy to feel hopeless about the affordability of some places in America, there’s so good news, too.
U.S. News & World Report ranks cities for affordability based on how much of their income residents spend on housing, as well as the cost of utilities and taxes. These five cities are ranked the most affordable, and they’re great places to live, work, and play…without working three jobs to live.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
