After surveying more than 30,000 cities nationwide, neighborhood website AreaVibes has named Allen #1!

Allen scored 88/100 in the website's annual Livability Score. The metrics compare amenities, cost of living, crime rate, education, employment, housing and weather.

"Although Allen, Texas, may not have earned national name recognition just yet, the growing city is quickly becoming a popular place to move to and raise a family," the authors note. "With sunny weather, a growing list of amenities and safe streets devoid of crime, it's no wonder that so many people are happy to call Allen home."

The AreaVibes ranking is the latest in a growing list of accolades. In September, MONEY named Allen #2 in its annual list of America's best towns. WalletHub ranked Allen #3 in a survey of the country's best real estate markets. Safewise included Allen in its annual list of the 20 safest cities in Texas.
