Richland has been named the U.S.’s seventh best small city to live in by the financial website Nerd Wallet.

The site looked at more than 900 cities with populations between 25,000 and 100,000, with scores based on factors from cost of living to percent of residents without health insurance, a city news release said. Richland recognized for its relatively affordable housing, falling poverty rate and growing population and income, the release said.

Sammamish was the only other Washington city on the list, ranked at fourth.
