​​​​NEW YORK – Allen was named the second-best place to live in the U.S. by Money. 

The North Texas city has a population of 96,000 and a median home price of $323,676, according to Money data. Projected job growth is 17 percent, and median household income is $104,524.

There are around 232 clear days per year, and it takes 29 minutes for the average citizen to commute. The high school graduation rate is 96.9 percent.

The magazine also cited Allen’s $1.6 billion of development in 2017 and a $91 million convention center and hotel complex due next year. 

This year's Best Places to Live list focused on cities with a population of 10,000 to 100,000 to avoid the biggest cities, said Money​. 

Fishers, Ind., northeast of Indianapolis, snagged the top spot. Three other North Texas cities—No. 19 Grapevine, No. 20 Wylie, and No. 23 Bedford—cracked the top 25.
