"Livability.com explores what makes small to mid-sized cities great places to live, work and visit," according to the website.

It partnered with the Martin Prosperity Institute to rank cities based on economics, housing, amenities, infrastructure, demographics, social and civic capital, education and healthcare, according to a Livability.com news release.

Columbus is the only Georgia city that made the list. One Alabama city appears on the list: Huntsville, which ranks No. 30.
