And The 10 Best Counties In America Are..

City pride is most certainly a thing, and most people across the country are not afraid to show theirs. But, thanks to this list of incredible counties, a new kind of pride is about to become very real, as well.

According to the blog on the real estate site, Movoto, these are the state subregions to live in if all those city lists are a bit too specific for you.

"We looked at 640 counties across the US in order to create this ranking," Movoto's editorial content manager Randy Nelson told The Huffington Post. "We scored each in terms of unemployment, median household income, median rent and home price (higher being more desirable), precent of families below the poverty line and high school graduation rate. The average of these scores was used to determine the best counties, the higher the better."

And based on their impressively high scores, Nelson insists these areas have "earned the right to be called the best in the nation."

So if you're looking for a place where you can let your county pride flag fly, check out the list below (and perhaps consider heading to the East Coast)...
