Arlington Ranked No. 7 Suburb in U.S. By Same Website That Just Ranked It No. 1 City

Niche logoArlington County is the “Best City to Live in America,” according to the website, as of last week.

But, according to Niche, Arlington didn’t rank quite as well on its new list of the “Best Suburbs to Live in America.”

Arlington is No. 7 on the list, behind McNair in Fairfax County (No. 6); Park City, Utah (No. 4) and Merrifield, also in Fairfax County (No. 2). Superior, a town near Boulder, Colorado, topped the list at No. 1.

The “Best Suburbs” list is “based on crime, public schools, cost of living, job opportunities, and local amenities.”
