To compile its list, Movoto reviewed 15 rankings it conducted in 2013. The final score for Best Cities in America was a meta-ranking of the original ranks. Movoto’s rankings, which were designed to educate and entertain, looked at the 50 most populous cities in the country and included topics such as The Best Cities for Home Buyers, The Most Exciting Cities in America, and The Most Saintly Cities.

“All year long, we’ve had cities battle it out in our top 10 lists,” said Marketing Director Chris Kolmar. “We’ve ranked the most meat-loving cities and the preppiest cities in America. Now we know which city stands triumphantly above the rest clutching its Best City in America trophy.”
