NORWALK, Conn. -- Norwalk is one of the best cities to live in the state, ranking second on the annual Connecticut Magazine "Rating the Towns" listing.

After previously rating all towns and cities along the same criteria, the magazine decided to separate its rankings for this year's list based on median house price. It also separated the cities from the towns.

In addition to median house price, Connecticut Magazine weighed crime rates, graduation rates, the equalized mill rate, PIC rating, the number of restaurants that made the publications "Best Restaurants" list and voter turnout when determining the ranking.

Each of the state's eight largest cities were ranked from one to eight and the city with the lowest score was considered the best.

Stamford topped the list with nine points, followed by Norwalk with 12 points.

Norwalk had the best-ranked education among cities and the best community engagement score.

Danbury came in third among cities.

Fairfield County dominated in the towns category, with Ridgefield, Darien, New Canaan, Wilton, Greenwich, Weston and Westport ranked first through seventh, respectively, in towns with a median household cost of $300,000 or higher.
