If you’re torn between the hustle and bustle of city life and the peace and quiet of the suburbs, the best of both worlds can be found in Alpharetta, according to a new study from StorageCafe.

The Atlanta-area suburb is ranked 19th on StorageCafe’s “Best U.S. Suburbs For City-Like Living” list, thanks to a mix of factors including good schools, high earnings, local businesses, lifestyle-oriented amenities and proximity to restaurants, stores and health care facilities.

The study looked at approximately 1,000 suburbs and ranked them across several criteria, including a housing affordability index, local employment opportunities (businesses/1,000 people) and their corresponding average wage, crime rate, public schools ranking and the number of restaurants and shopping avenues.

Other Atlanta-area suburbs on the list include Suwanee (21st), Milton (87th), and Snellville (98th).
