Plano displaced Frisco, which led the ranking for this year.”
At the top of the list is Plano, Texas with affordable rent, low crime rates, etc. according to a Changing America article. They say,
“Plano, Texas, took the top spot with affordable rent, low crime, a high average household income and the highest broadband coverage. Frisco and Austin in the state also snagged slots on the top 10 — Texas, notably, has no state income tax.”
The American South dominated the top 10 taking up eight spots. The analysis for the list notes availability, earning potential, and internet speed as positives in those areas.
