Nerd Wallet, a financial website, has named Richland the seventh best small city to live in! More than 900 small cities with populations between 25,000 and 100,000 were considered. Another deciding factor was based on cost of living to percent of residents without health insurance. Affordable housing, decreasing poverty rates and growing income and population helped to make Richland so attractive. The only other Washington city on the list was Sammamish, who ranked fourth.
