Step aside other Wisconsin cities, Whitefish Bay is the best place to live in the state according to 24/7 Wall St.

The Milwaukee suburb ranks number one for its secure job market and low crime rate.

The average unemployment rate for the last five years in Whitefish Bay sits at 3.2 percent. That's less than half of the nationwide rate of 7.4 percent.

Whitefish Bay was also praised for its violent crime rate of 36 incidents per 100,000 people. There were 383 violent crimes per 100,000 people nationwide in 2017.

Other Midwest cities to make the list include: East Grand Rapids, Michigan, New Ulm, Minnesota, Winnetka, Illinois and Le Mars, Iowa.

24/7 Wall St. looked at economies, entertainment options and more in determining the best city of at least 8,000 residents in each state.
