CARMEL (Inside INdiana Business) — A new posting from personal finance website WalletHub lists 2021’s Best Small Cities in America and three central Indiana communities are in the top 20. The website compared more than 1,300 U.S. cities with populations between 25,000 and 100,000.
Carmel comes in at No. 2, followed by Zionsville at No. 6 and Westfield at No. 11. Further down the list is Fishers at No. 27 and Brownsburg at No. 58. WalletHub used five key factors, affordability, economic health, education & health, quality of life and safety.
The company says urbanization is slowing while suburbanization is rising, “and movement out of cities is spurred by fear of COVID-19 this year.”
The top-rated small city is Sammamish, Washington, a suburb of Seattle.
