Looking for the best place to live in the States? Well, you might want to consider moving into Austin in Texas after it has been hailed by the U.S. News and World Report as the best place to live in America.

Every year, thousands of American are surveyed to figure out the top 100 places in America to live in. Factors include quality of life, value, job market, desirability and net migration. This year, Austin City bagged the first spot.

To complete the top five, the no. 2 spot went to Denver, followed by San Jose, California, Washington, D.C., and Fayetteville, Arkansas. Austin got number one spot because of its outstanding score of 7.8 out of 10.

"We celebrate what we're doing right to be ranked first, recognizing it also highlights the accompanying affordability, equity and mobility challenges that our city faces," said Austin Mayor Steve Adler in a statement. "Inherent in that ranking is the strength to manage growth so we can preserve Austin's special spirit."

Austin is commonly known as the live music capital of the world and its being more open-minded than other states. Aside from that, what makes Austin a desirable city to live is that it promotes high quality of life, but without the demanding cost of living.

This city in Texas is also an apt choice for young professionals. If you're a recent college graduate just starting to build your career, Austin has plenty of profitable business and charitable venture capitalist environments that will aid any entrepreneur in growing a start-up business. Companies such as Main Street Hub and Amherst InsightLbas are good companies that seek to add more positions in the coming years. 

For food lovers, Austin is the place to be too. Countless food trucks and hearty local restaurants dot the culinary scene at Austin, and of course, since it's located in Texas, you can be rest assured that they know how to whip up the best barbecue in town. Bess Bistro, the highly-rated restaurant owned by Sandra Bullock is located here, as well as Smokey Denmark's, one of Autin's most loved barbecue joints.
