Salisbury has been ranked as one of the top places to live in the country. 

A recent ranking by U.S. News & World Report placed the Salisbury metro area at No. 95 in its “best places to live” lineup. 

Additionally, Salisbury ranked 26th in “best places to retire,” 16th in “fastest growing places” and 20th in “safest places to live.” 

“While Salisbury continues to grow as the hub of the Salisbury, Maryland-Delaware metropolitan area, it has never lost touch with the small-town feel fitting of a place that remains predominantly rural,” the report reads.

The ranking also analyzed the job market, schools and crime in the area. 

According to the report, Salisbury has a less healthy job market than similarly sized metro areas. Salisbury’s average annual salary is $44,020, while the national average annual salary is $53,490.
