According to online news and opion company 24/7 Wall St., Manhattan Beach was the #1 Best City to Live in the United States for 2020.  According to the site:

24/7 Wall St. created a weighted index of over two dozen measures from the U.S. Census Bureau, the FBI, and other sources to identify the best city to live in. We considered all boroughs, census designated places, cities, towns, and villages with at least 8,000 residents.

They claim to have “created a weighted index of 25 measures that fall into one of four categories: affordability, economy, quality of life, and community”  to come up with the list….and Manhattan Beach was #1.  Click to see the actual article and here’s the page with Manhattan Beach mentioned.

According to 24/7 Wall St.

Manhattan Beach

  • Ranking: 1
  • Population: 35,573
  • Five-year population change: +0.7%
  • Median household income: $150,083
  • Five-year average unemployment rate: 5.3%

Manhattan Beach is one of several California cities to rank on this list. Located on the Pacific Coast about 20 miles from downtown Los Angeles, Manhattan Beach residents have access to a major urban area and miles of ocean coast. Due in part to its high desirability as a place to live, real estate in Manhattan Beach is expensive, as is the overall cost of living. People living there tend to be relatively affluent, with over half of all area households reporting incomes over $150,000 a year.

As is often the case in wealthy areas, serious crimes are relatively uncommon in Manhattan Beach. The city’s violent crime rate of 158.2 incidents per 100,000 people is less than half the national rate of 380.6 per 100,000.

Here are the top 10 U.S. cities to live in per 24/7 Wall St.:

  1. Manhattan Beach, California
  2. Winnetka, Illinois
  3. Hanover, New Hampshire
  4. Highland Park, Texas
  5. Piedmont, California
  6. Paradise Valley, Arizona
  7. Solana Beach, California
