Not Good – Where Michigan Ranks on the List of Best States to Live in 2022
If you live in Michigan, you probably think it's the best place to live in the United States, right? Sorry, we know that's not totally accurate but let's try and keep things positive here.
We have so many fantastic rivers, and forests, and the further north you go, the prettier things get. Not to mention, were surrounded by the largest and most beautiful lakes in the country.
While Michigan is no doubt beautiful, it may not be the best place live. At least that's what research is showing in this study.
The purpose of this study is to use science to determine which of our great American states are the absolute best. While unbiased, this research does take into account factors that almost all Americans would agree are desirable.
Let's have a look at the top 10 states first.
Michigan Didn't Even Crack the Top 10?

Okay, so we didn't make the top 10. Michigan has to at least be in the top 20, right? Unfortunately, we didn't crack that list either. See for yourself.

I'm not even going to get into the methodology and criteria used for this. When you're #30 on the list, does it even matter? However, if you really want to dig that deep, go here.
