Several Texas cities made the list, but nice to see us in the top 100.

We have many positive things to say about living in Wichita Falls, but that's us who live here. Nice to see that Wichita Falls made the Niche.com list for top cities to live in the country. Wichita Falls landed at 97 on the list for 2021. Several grades got us into that top 100 spot.

A- for Nightlife, A for Diversity, A- for Cost of Living (I personally would put that at A+), A for Diversity, and an A for Commute (I would also put this one at A+). The only areas we really scored bad in were for Crime & Safety and Outdoor Activities. Our city received a C for both of those. I can see the crime rating, but I think outdoor activities is too low for us.

Stacker used data from the 2020 County Health Rankings to rank every state's average life expectancy from lowest to highest. The 2020 County Health Rankings values were calculated using mortality counts from the 2016-2018 National Center for Health Statistics. The U.S. Census 2019 American Community Survey and America's Health Rankings Senior Report 2019 data were also used to provide demographics on the senior population of each state and the state's rank on senior health care, respectively.
