CNN Money has released its annual report for the best cities to live, and it's something Oklahomans can take pride in.
Broken Arrow, Edmond, Moore and Norman all made the list of top 100 places to live .
CNN Money looked at job opportunities, schools, crime, health care and quality of life when compiling the list.
Broken Arrow came in at No. 69.
CNN listed Broken Arrow as the safest city in Oklahoma with affordable homes, high job growth, good schools and parks.
Edmond trailed not far behind Broken Arrow at No. 73. CNN praised Edmond as a city full of great schools, low property taxes and great public art.
Next was Moore, at No. 77. According to the report, Moore makes the top 100 because of its low unemployment rate and quality schools. It also lists Moore as the safest Oklahoma City suburb.
Norman rounded out Oklahoma cities at No. 92. The home of the Sooners' college town atmosphere gained admiration from the CNN writers. Its affordability and friendliness, as well as a four percent unemployment rate, contributed to the ranking, according to the report.
