Denver, CO come in as the best place to live followed by Austin, TX and a surprising Fayetteville, AR.  

Of the top 100 - San Juan, PR is ranked #100.

Portland comes in as the 20th ranked "best place to live in America.

Here is what U.S. News writes about #20 ranked Portland:

Methodology:

U.S. News & World Report's inaugural Best Places to Live rankings are intended to help readers make the most informed decision when choosing where to settle down.
