KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Livability ranked Knoxville, and a couple other Tennessee cities, among the 100 best places to live in 2020.

Livability is a research site that “explores what makes small-to-medium sized cities great places to live.” It placed Knoxville at 96 on its list of best places to live in this year and called it “the perfect combination of natural beauty and big city amenities.”

The site said it based its ranking on multiple factors that include: Civic, Demographics, Economy, Education, Health, Housing and Infrastructure. It gathered data from sources like the U.S. Census Bureau and U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Affairs, as well as others which you can see here.

The listing also named off some popular hot spots in the city, including the top beer spot (Balter Beerworks) and the top meal (Petro’s).

Can you guess what the site nominated as the city dream job?

That’s right! Being the Vols mascot’s handler!
