Baltimore made the cut as one of U.S. News & World Report’s 2019 top 125 places to live in the United States.
Charm City came in at number 100 and is the only Maryland city to make the cut.
According to the website, “a place had to have good value, be a desirable place to live, have a strong job market and a high quality of life” to make the list.
U.S. News said Baltimore’s “elegant architecture, friendly people and lively pockets of nightlife and music” that make it a “pleasant and fun place to call home.” That, despite Baltimore’s crime continuing to be higher than the national rate.
As far the rest of the DMV, Washington D.C. ranked 19. In Virginia, Richmond ranked 53 and Virginia Beach came in at 103 on the annual list.
