With its booming economy, low cost of living, and copious development opportunities, it is no surprise that The Rocket City is nationally ranked once again. Recognized among 25 other cities, Huntsville is the Best Place to Live for Families in the U.S. in 2023–2024, according to U.S. News and World Report.
Taking a look at the numbers, Huntsville’s median annual salary comes in at $61,140. This is above the national average of $58,260, but the average resident spends just 19.62% of the median annual income on the cost of living.
