These Are The Top 5


A recent survey conducted by revealed the 25 most neighborly cities in America in 2021. And you might be surprised which cities made the list.

According to, they had certain criteria for the neighbors to meet in order to be considered for the list.

“We looked at factors like giving & volunteering, but also scoured the internet for new factors to consider. We also surveyed people across the nation and learned what it means to be a good neighbor”

So, which cities made the top 5?

Take a look.

Des Moines, Iowa

Des Moines narrowly beat out D.C. because of non-profits in the city.“It also comes in at #11 for volunteering, and #16 for happiness, making it an extremely neighborly place overall”

Minneapolis, Minnesota

In 2020, Minneapolis was at No. 6. This year, it jumped two spots to No. 4. Most people who lived in Minneapolis were thrilled with the overall quality of life.

Portland, Oregon

Many a joke has been cracked about the hipster haven that is Portland, OR, but the reality is, it’s one of the happiest cities in America.

Rochester, NY

Last year, Rochester was barely in the top 10. This year, it almost took the top spot. It ranks fourth in the nation for neighborly acts and fifth in the nation for volunteering.

Madison, Wisconsin

In Madison, many people spend free time volunteering, and many reports doing kind acts for their neighbors — two things we think make a community more neighborly. 

Madison has a low rate of crime, making it a safe, happy city with a palpable community bond. 

Congratulations to Madison, the most neighborly city in America in 2021.
