The World’s 10 Best Cities to Call Home

The World’s 10 Best Cities to Call Home
Advertising

Looking for a change of pace and want to upgrade the city you call home? Try any of these top ten most livable locals in the world and you won’t be disappointed! These rankings are from the Economist Intelligence Unit and are driven by data regarding a host of livability factors for 140 cities across the globe, so you can be sure these really are the 10 best cities around.

10. Auckland

    New Zealand’s biggest city is also its most livable! With 32% of the country’s people packed into one place you’d think things would get claustrophobic, but not in Auckland. When the hustle and bustle gets to be too much, just take a stroll along the world famous harbor front and find out why Auckland is nicknamed the “City of Sails.”

    9. Perth

      The world’s most isolated large city is also no slouch in the livability department. It may be more than 2,100 kilometers (1,300 miles) away from any other city with more than 100,000 people, but Perth knows how to party all on its own. With an average daily temperature in the comfortable mid-60s Fahrenheit (19° Celsius), Perth won’t sweat you out like most Australian locals, either. Just keep an eye out for sharks if you hit the beach.

      8. Helsinki

        One of only two European cities to find its way into the top ten, Helsinki is where to live if you want to take advantage of everything winter has to offer. Being the northernmost city on the list you might expect bitter cold and blizzards in Finland’s capital, but the average temperature in the winter months only sits around 23° F (-5° C), thanks to the Baltic Sea. That makes Helsinki the perfect place to do some cross country skiing before heating back up in one of Finland’s famous saunas.

        7. Sydney

          If cold really isn’t your thing, maybe Sydney is the place for you. The world’s seventh most livable city sits on what is arguably the world’s most beautiful natural harbor. Rent a boat and explore some of Sydney Harbor’s 317 kilometers (196 miles) of coastline before taking advantage of the nightlife in Australia’s most populous city.

          6. Adelaide

            If you’re looking for a slightly slower pace while still enjoying many of the great benefits of Sydney, why not give Adelaide a try? With a little more than a quarter the population of its larger cousin, Adelaide hosts a terrific arts scene and a great food and wine culture. Explore the Art Gallery of South Australia before heading to either the Adelaide Festival of Arts or the renowned Fringe Festival.

            5. Calgary

              Number five on the countdown is a winter wonderland to rival even Helsinki. If you can brave the coldest days in Calgary, the largest city on Canada’s prairies, your reward might come in the form of a warm chinook wind from the mountains raising the mercury to spring temperatures in the middle of winter. Use the summer months to check out the Calgary Stampede rodeo, or explore the Rocky Mountains a short drive west of the city center.

              4. Toronto

                If you’re more into arts and music than cowboy culture, maybe Canada’s largest city would be a good fit. Toronto sits on the shores of Lake Ontario and boasts some of the best galleries, shopping, and music in the northern hemisphere. Don’t miss the great recreational opportunities on the islands that protect the city’s harbor, the only group of islands in the western section of Lake Ontario.

                3. Vancouver

                  If Canada seems like your kind of place but parkas don’t flatter your figure, move to Vancouver! The crown jewel of the Pacific Northwest boasts dramatic mountains, incredible ocean views and a thriving arts scene. Vancouver is also Canada’s most environmentally minded city, with an extensive network of rooftop gardens and the beautiful Stanley Park, which allows residents to walk or bike along the city’s famous seawall for all 12 snow-free months of the year.

                  2. Vienna

                  vienna-228943_640

                    Europe’s most livable city may be famous as the setting for Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, but it is so much more than romantic monster stories. Austria’s capital and largest city has history in heaps, having been lived in continuously since 500 BC. Castles, cathedrals, museums, and wine will greet you when you arrive and make you want to stay forever.

                    1. Melbourne

                      To find the world’s most livable city, however, we must head back to Australia to explore the streets of Melbourne. Boasting some of the country’s highest ratings for education, entertainment, healthcare, tourism, and sports, Melbourne has a lot to offer, no matter what you’re into. Take in a match at the Melbourne Cricket Ground or wander the halls of the Royal Exhibition Building, the world’s most livable city will keep you coming back for more.
