Way to go, Iowa!

Just days after Des Moines was named one of the cities with the most stressed out workers, it has also been mentioned on a much happier list! According to U.S. News"100 Best Places to Live in the USA" list, Des Moines is #9! The study states:

"The metro area of more than 600,000 has a small-town, know-your-neighbor feel to it. It's a place where you'll bump into people you know at the grocery store and get invited to backyard barbecues. Newcomers, take note: The people of Des Moines are some of the nicest you'll ever meet."

The list is based on affordability, job prospects and quality of life. Here are the rest of the top 10:

  1. Austin, Texas
