Woodland Named One of the Top 100 Places to Live in America

Livability.com recently named the City of Woodland one of its 2021 “Top 100 Best Places to Live in America” and the second best place to live in the entire State of California. Woodland is proud to be included in a list of cities that, according to Livability.com, “offer the exact things so many of us are craving right now: connection, affordability, and the space and opportunity to grow.”

Woodland stands out due to “a robust and stable economy that’s rooted in agriculture and top-notch health care” as well as its proximity to major transit hubs such as Sacramento International Airport. In addition, Livability.com mentions Woodland’s diverse small business community and the innovative public-private partnership that fueled the new Lab@AgStart, a state-of-the-art shared wet lab, food lab, and co-working space on Main Street.

“We’re thrilled to be recognized for what many of us already know: Woodland is a welcoming community with a unique mix of amenities,” says City spokesperson Spencer Bowen. “As Livability.com points out, we offer a strong economy, great food and drink, diverse housing options, lots of outdoor recreation, and more.”
