Money, the finance magazine, has ranked Woodstock among its Best Places to Live in the United States.

Woodstock was 31st out of 50 towns and cities, with a reported median household income of $78,638, median home price of $282,424 and 3% unemployment rate.

Money analyzed thousands of different places in the U.S. with an emphasis on affordability, by collecting hundreds of thousands of different data points, according to the magazine.

“There is a lot to do and see in our town. We appreciate Money recognizing that and mentioning how vibrant Downtown Woodstock is along with the many ways you can enjoy the outdoors here," Mayor Donnie Henriques said in a statement.

Two other Georgia towns made the list. Martinez ranked no. 21 and Peachtree City ranked no. 24. This is Woodstock’s third time to be recognized as one of Money’s Top Places to Live. Woodstock was first included in 2015. Last year, Woodstock ranked no. 17 on the list.
