The secret is out. Relocate America has declared Tulsa the No. 1 place to live in America.
Relocate America's TOP 100 Places To Live! list is compiled using data regarding local economy, housing, education, employment, crime, parks and recreation, and other statistics used to make home-buying decisions.
Communities around the country are nominated by residents, and information is submitted about neighborhoods, the city's beauty, the quality of schools, recreational activities and economic growth. The TOP 100 Places to Live! list is published annually.
â€œThis ranking corroborates exactly what the Chamber uses to sell the Tulsa region 365 days of the year,â€ said Mike Neal, president and CEO. â€œWe are faring much better during the national recession than many of our peer cities because of our diversified industries, quality of life and cost of living.â€
Tulsa has also been identified as the fifth best city in the nation to ride out the recession, according to Forbes.com.
"We have one of the strongest real estate markets in the country, and Tulsa is experiencing job growth other cities are not during this national recession," said Bob Ball, economist for the Chamber. "Additionally, our cost of living is 11.5 percent below the national average. When you consider all of this quality of life data, Tulsa is an attractive community to both businesses and relocating families."
