247wallst researched each state in the union to find the worst city to live in. Those living in the capital city won’t like their results.

They say Cheyenne and Casper are similar, but “Cheyenne compares worse in several important measures.”

“The state capital has a poverty rate of 11.2%, compared to Casper’s 10.5% poverty rate. Violent crime is also slightly more commonplace in Cheyenne than in Casper, at 192 incidents per 100,000 residents, compared to Casper’s 139 incidents per 100,000 people."

"While Cheyenne technically ranks as the worst city in the state to live, it compares either similarly or favorably to the state as a whole and the nation in measures like crime and poverty.”

A sad indictment from an outsider’s viewpoint. What are your thoughts?

Huffington Post says “What makes a city great? On the surface, it’s the people, the food, the outdoor environments and transit systems, incredible art, and architecture.”

Caz and Craig from “yTravel Blog” say its Climate, Location, Vibrancy, Open Spaces, Nature, Outdoor living, Good transport system / walkable, Cost of living, Job opportunities,

Livability is a bit more pragmatic about why people move to a city:

"A new or better home/apartment, family, affordable housing and better neighborhood, make your own household, and new job or transfer."

I think 247wallst has it right with the strength of the local economy and job market, the area’s safety and culture, quality of schools, as well as its climate.

These are the cities that attract new residents and keep the ones they have. If Cheyenne is the worst city, which Wyoming town is the best and why?
