Many would argue that Bismarck is the best city in North Dakota to live in. According to real estate website Movoto, though, Bismarck is actually the fifth best city in North Dakota in which to reside.

Movoto looked at things like amenities, employment rate, and tax rates to come up with their list of the top ten cities in North Dakota to live in.

Here's what Movoto had to say about our fair city:

Although smaller than Fargo, Bismarck is the state capitol and ranks No. 5 on our overall list in a three-way tie with Dickinson and Carrington. The stats that got it there have mostly to do with this being an absolutely great place to work. The unemployment rate here is a measly 2.5 percent, and the commute time is only 15 minutes. For their troubles, workers make a median household income of $47,560, which makes the in-demand housing and rent much easier to afford.

On Top of all that, there are plenty of amenities to enjoy, and the city ranks No. 2 for that criterion. There are museums, tons of shopping, a symphony orchestra, zoo, and much more. As far as dining goes, there are so many places for a foodie to visit. Whether it’s the true Neapolitan style pizzas at Fireflour Pizza or the bison dishes at Pirogue Grille, the places in Bismarck are not to be missed by those of experienced palate (or just empty stomach).

Here are the top ten cities in North Dakota, according to Movoto:

1. Lisbon
2. West Fargo
3. Jamestown
4. Fargo
5. Bismarck (tie)
5. Dickinson (tie)
5. Carrington (tie)
8. Williston
9. Lincoln
10. Wahpeton (tie)
11. Horace (tie)
