PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Once again, Pittsburgh has been named the most livable city in the continental United States.

For the second time since 2009, the Economist rated the Steel City as best places to live, based on stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education and infrastructure.

If you count all the states, Honolulu ranked No. 1.

“It’s great to celebrate the accolades that were made possible through the spirit of innovation here, fueled by the passion of Pittsburgh residents and decision makers,” said Craig Davis, president and CEO of VisitPITTSBURGH. “This city has come far because of the determination of collaboration and of perseverance. There’s been a conscious effort to invest in arts, culture and the environment as an economic development strategy. And, that has paid off nicely.”

Other cities included Washington D.C., Chicago and Atlanta.
