A recent study from Forbes has named Wichita one of the top cities to move to in 2024. 

Forbes said it analyzed cities based on housing costs, cost of living, crime rates, air quality, quality of education, median income, employment rates, weather, entertainment establishments, commute times and net migration to determine the rankings. Wichita came in at No. 3. 

"If affordability is top of mind for you, Wichita has the lowest median monthly housing cost out of our overall top five cities," the study said. "We were impressed by the city’s 98% employment rate, highlighting its economy and the labor market, which is great for both its residents and businesses."

Wichita does, however, have the highest crime rate of the top 5 cities, the study says. 

Here are the top 5:

  1. Omaha, ME
  2. Raleigh, NC
  3. Oklahoma City, OK
  4. Wichita, KS
  5. Colorado Springs, CO
