Only one Georgia city made a national list of the "Top 100 Best Places to Live."

Marietta, Georgia came in at #73 on the Livability.com list.

Livability.com partnered with market research company Ipsos to conduct their study, querying more than 1,000 millennials about what was important to them when they considered a relocation. They said they use data from the "best public and private data sources available." 

"Marietta maintains a relatively low cost of living while providing high-quality housing options and a tight-knit community for residents," the website writes.

Overall, Marietta had a "livability" score of 582. It scored highest in "Housing" (74), "Demographics" (70) and "Infrastructure" (63). 

By contrast, the list's #1 city, Boise, Idaho, had a score of 674.
