The coronavirus pandemic pushed droves of American's – many of whom desired more space – to settle in new areas of the country. However, Boulder, Colo., was still the most desired of them all, according to a new report.
For the second year in a row, Boulder has notched the top spot on the U.S. News & World Report's Best Places to Live rankings for 2021-2022. For its data, U.S. News & World Report ranked the nation's 150 most populous metropolitan areas based on affordability, job prospects and desirability.

And even though Boulder doesn't have the most affordable housing compared to other metropolitan areas, it continues to dominate the list due to "high quality of life, job market and desirability scores," according to the report.
"Although home values in Boulder have appreciated, it is the lifestyle that continues to draw buyers to this diverse community," Michael Hughes, a broker with LIV Sotheby's International Realty's Boulder office, told FOX Business.
Hughes said part of the attraction is the fact that "there's just so much to do," from "getting outdoors to go hiking, to biking, or rock climbing, to checking out the amazing restaurants."
