What city in Idaho is the overall best one to live in?

It's likely that you answered this question with a Treasure Valley city. Especially in recent years, we've seen so many “best of” lists that feature Boise, Meridian, Nampa, Eagle, Kuna, and more in the Treasure Valley, but there’s a new list that claims otherwise.

And this is great news if you're someone who wants people to stop looking at Boise haha! 👇

Stacker is claiming that there's another "BEST place to live in Idaho."

And that city is Moscow :)

The team at Stacker "compiled a list of the best places to live in every state using Niche’s 2020 rankings. Niche ranks places to live based on many factors, including the cost of living, educational attainment, housing, and public schools.” Here's what they said about Moscow...

“Sharing the border with Washington State, Moscow began attracting settlers around 1871 for its lush grasslands and large amount of timber. The town is home to a weekend farmers market, the University of Idaho, and the paved Latah Trail connecting Moscow and Troy for joggers and cyclists.”

And hey... with a Population of 25,319, Median Home Value of $229,900, Median Rent of $731, and Median Household Income of $41, 896—Moscow isn’t seeming so bad—I’m looking at these numbers thinking, “$731 for rent?! Sign me up!”
