"Virginia Beach is one of the 10 best cities to live in, according to a new study.
The WalletHub study looked at cities with a population of 300,000 or more and compared livability, quality of health and education systems, economic growth and tax rates. In all, the study took into account 31 key metrics to come up with the list.
Virginia Beach is No. 10, just behind Lexington, Ky., and San Francisco, which tied for No. 8. Austin, Texas, took the top spot.
The study also found that in Virginia Beach, the household income adjusted by the cost of living is three times higher than in Cleveland. Detroit, ranked lowest, has a violent crime rate that is 13 times as high as Virginia Beach’s.
By category, Virginia Beach ranked ninth in livability, 14th for education, 23rd for health, and 14th for the local economy and taxes." (Taken from the Virginia Pilot)
