#55. Moscow, ID

On the Idaho-Washington border is Moscow, home to the University of Idaho and its 11,000 students and 3,500 employees. The university offers 140 degree programs along with community-enriching amenities like a golf course and the state’s largest library, while numerous stores, restaurants and bars are within easy walking distance of the campus. Education plays a key role in the local economy (New Saint Andrews College is also in Moscow), but other major sectors include healthcare, manufacturing, retail and technology.

Moscow’s healthcare score was boosted by Gritman Medical Center. Residents enjoy cultural attractions like the Kenworthy Performing Arts Centre, and the 11-mile paved Latah Trail is the perfect place to spend time outdoors.
