TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — Tucson has been named as one of the best cities in America by a global real estate company.

Resonance Consultancy released its best cities in America list Wednesday and the Old Pueblo took the 20th spot.

"Fast-growing Tucson is buoyed by its sense of place, ranking #10 in both our Weather and our Parks & Outdoors subcategories. The city is poised to ascend up future national rankings, due to a torrent of new investment in all manner of green and common space," the company said.

The section goes on to mention how the University of Arizona gives the city a "youthful bounce" and also highlights downtown's public transportation.

Phoenix also took a spot on the list. Resonance Consultancy gave The Valley a spot at number 9.

Each city's rank is based on six core categories: place, programming, prosperity, product, people, and promotion.
