Are you thinking about moving to a new city? Now there’s a new way to see the pros and cons of each of America’s biggest metropolises.

The creative wizards at WalletHub created a handy interactive map that compares the 62 largest cities within the U.S. cities by using 50 “key indicators of attractiveness.” Those factors include things like cost of living, access to schools and other amenities as well as local crime statistics.

So, what city came out on top? Virginia Beach, Va. was the most all around attractive city, thanks to its high rankings in the affordability and safety categories. Seattle, WA, Pittsburgh, PA, San Diego, CA and Colorado Springs, CO helped to round out the top 5.
