The magazine surveyed 511 CEOs across the nation and ranked states based on taxes and regulations, quality of the workforce, and living environment that takes into account cost of living, crime rates and education quality.

Texas and Florida maintained their rankings of No. 1 and No. 2, respectively, from 2014, while California held on to last place for the second consecutive year.

Here’s a look at the top 20 states for

Boulder appeared on Apartment List’s top 10 Best Colorado Cities for Families based on safety, housing cost, school quality and child friendliness; but, at No. 7, it wasn’t the highest-ranked city in the Boulder Valley.

That honor went to Longmont, which came in at No. 3 behind Castle Rock and Loveland. Castle Rock came in at No. 4 on the national list while Loveland was ranked 90th nationally. No other Colorado city ranked in Apartment List’s top 100 cities for young families nationwide.

“Named for its views of nearby Longs Peak, this mountain city tied Loveland for affordability,” Apartment List’s report says of Longmont. “And Longmont actually scored higher for safety and kid friendliness, with a slightly lower crime rate and slightly higher
