Four WI Towns Land On List Of Best Places To Live After COVID-19
It looks like Wisconsin is getting a big pat on the back - four cities from the state have just landed on a list of best places to live after COVID-19 coronavirus.
Business Insider released the list on Thursday (June 11th), naming thirty different cities across the country Americans should move to if they are looking for a change after COVID-19. They were inspired by a poll, which states that many across the country are thinking of moving and making a change.
To curate the list, the publication looked at factors like ability to work from home, population size, affordability of housing, cost of living, among others.
As mentioned, a handful of Wisconsin cities made the cut, including the following:
- La Crosse almost cracked the top ten, coming in at #12 on this list. The city has low housing costs and has short commute times.
- Wausau comes in at #18 on the list, thanks to the city's low housing costs which average just under $900 dollars a month.
- Madison places just under Wausau, making its mark at #19 on the list. Madison had an unemployment rate lower than the national average earlier this year and is an easy town to work remotely.
- Green Bay came in at #25 thanks to the low housing costs, which according to the publication, are around just over $900 dollars a month.
No Minnesota cities made the list. A bunch of other midwest cities did, however, including a handful in Illinois, Iowa and North Dakota.
Just the other day, Wisconsin was also named one of the best states for gamers. The more you know!
