Photos: Movoto's ten best American cities for 2013 -- and where Denver lands
Our friends at Movoto have shared their list of the ten best American cities for 2013, and given that the site came up with the top thirty reasons for moving to Denver just a few months back, it's no surprise that the Mile High City made the cut.
But where did it land?
We've got all the answers, along with photos, graphics showing where each city placed in a slew of other lists from throughout the year, and Movoto-penned excerpts from each item. Check them out below.
Note: The data used to compile this list was derived from posts on the following topics: Worst Dressed Cities (using the "losers" from this ranking); Nerdiest Cities; Most Exciting Cities; Most Family Friendly Cities; Most Unhealthy Cities (using the "losers" again); Smartest Cities; Most Saintly Cities; Hardest Working Cities; Most Steampunk Cities (remember the "go awesome" part?); Funniest Cities; Worst Cities for Food Lovers (yep, the "losers" of this one, too); Preppiest Cities; Best Cities for Meat Lovers; Best Cities for Movie Lovers; Best Cities for Home Buyers
Number 10: Las Vegas, Nevada
"We're not sure what's more surprising about Sin City -- that it wasn't the least saintly city in our top 50 (it was 44th) or what it was only the 30th Most Exciting (Oakland, CA, which didn't make out top 10, placed first for that)...." Number 9: Miami, Florida
"It might not be very family friendly (45th) or saintly (46th), but boy if Miami doesn't look good. The Florida metro's highest rank was in Best Dressed, where it placed third overall, but it got high marks for Meat Lovers (fourth) and Smartest (fifth) too...."
