Washington D.C. ranks among the nation's best big cities, according to a new report.

 

The District scored high among the list of best big cities in the U.S. to live in, according to a new report.

 

The personal finance website WalletHub ranked America’s 62 largest cities this week based on affordability, education and health, quality of life and safety.

 

Washington D.C., earned a total score of 56.81 out of 100 possible points.

 

The city ranked sixth in safety and 10th in quality of life. It didn’t score as well in affordability, however.

 

 

Here’s how the District ranked in each category:

 

Affordability: 52

 

Economy: 27

 

Education and health: 24

 

Quality of life: 10

 

Safety: 6

 

Here are the top 10 big cities in America to live in, according to the report:

 

 

Seattle

 

Virginia Beach, Virginia

 

Austin, Texas

 

San Francisco

 

San Diego

 

Honolulu

 

Portland, Oregon

 

San Jose, California

 

Colorado Springs, Colorado

 

New York City

 

For those who eat out a lot and like variety in their food options, the authors say New York City and San Francisco are the places to be, with both ranking in the top five for restaurants per capita. The two cities also cracked the top five in most coffee shops per capita and best walk score.

 

If safety is a priority, Virginia Beach or El Paso is the way to go.

 

Detroit ranked last among the biggest cities in the study.
