The site gave Naperville a report card with a number of high ratings: an A+ in the public schools, good for families, and health and fitness categories; an A for outdoor activities; and an A- for housing, diversity and jobs.

The site noted Naperville’s many restaurants, coffee shops and parks among its amenities. It also pointed out the high rankings of the city’s public schools. In fact, Naperville currently ranks number one on Niche’s rankings of Cities with the Best Public Schools in America.

Naperville also holds the top spot on Niche’s Best Cities to Raise a Family in America list, and is number three on the site’s Best Cities to Buy a House in America list.

Naperville also came in third in Niche’s Best Cities to Live in America list last year.

For the “Best Cities to Live in America” list, livability factors like access to amenities, crime rates, housing trends, employment and health and fitness all come into play.
