A recent study determined the Spa city is in the 98th percentile when it comes to the best small cities in the United States.

One of the cool things about living in the Capital Region is our access to good size cities. They are just big enough to have a lot going on, but not TOO big. And one of our own ranks among the nation's best according to Wallethub.

Saratoga Springs landed in the top 2% of their study! So how did the Spa city get there? Walltehub based their rankings on a formula that measured "40 key indicators of livability" including the cost of living, unemployment rates, restaurants per-capita and more. The study looked at 1,200 cities with populations of 25,000 to 100,000.

I am sure you are not surprised Saratoga Springs landed so high on the list, and you also won't be surprised that Saratoga Springs scored highest in quality of life, ranked at #53 of all the cities surveyed.That quality of life is something not only residents, but all of us here in that Capital Region, get to enjoy!
