Livability came out with their second annual list of the Best Places to Live in the U.S. There are two North Dakota cities that made the top 100.

With one of the best economies in the country and plenty of jobs, it's no wonder that North Dakota has a couple of cities making the list.

Here is the criteria.

Only one NoDak city made the list in 2014. That city bumped up by more 70 spots. The other Peace Garden city makes a debut on this list.

Fargo- Last year was #98. This year # 22. Population 106,005

"Fargo is home to North Dakota State University and several museums and theaters, and the city's economy centers upon retail, food processing, technology and industry. A well-regarded parks system is available to residents along with good health care through entities like Sanford Health, Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota and Essentia Health.

Bismarck - Debut #51 Population 61,941

"North Dakota's capital is Bismarck, a city that hosts six colleges along with prominent retail and health-care sectors. Sanford Health is the largest employer with 25,000 workers, and residents can enjoy a large park system and many exercise trails. The 19-story, art deco North Dakota State Capitol is one of the city's most popular attractions.
