From Lake Superior to Lake Michigan, the state of Wisconsin is home to some of the most exciting college towns and cities in the country. But anyone who’s enjoyed a quiet afternoon walking through a charming downtown or frequenting a mellow farmers' market on the weekend knows that the Badger State's smaller communities are just as appealing in their own way. 

24/7 Wall St. has created a weighted index of over two dozen metrics to identify the best place to live in each state. It considered all boroughs, census-designated areas, cities, towns, and villages with at least 8,000 residents.

So where is the best place to live in the state of Wisconsin? According to 24/7 Wall St., that would be Whitefish Bay.

Whitefish Bay is a small town of just over 14,000 residents located 15 minutes north of Milwaukee. In recent years, it has received recognition for being one of the best suburbs in the state for young professionals and the best place in the state to raise a family.

If you live in Whitefish Bay, chances are you have at least a bachelor's degree. Those with college degrees are more qualified for jobs that tend to have higher salaries. In Whitefish Bay, the median household income is $105,156 a year–double the national average. Unemployment is also not a problem here The area's average unemployment rate over the last five years stands at just 3.2%, less than half the comparable nationwide rate of 7.4%.

Like many wealthy well-educated areas, Whitefish Bay is also an extremely safe place to live with a low violent crime rate well under the median average.

In addition to this, the town is located near Milwaukee meaning the suburb has a far greater concentration of restaurants, bars, fitness centers, museums, and entertainment venues than other suburbs nationwide.
