Columbus ranks fairly high on a list of top state capitals to live, according to a website devoted to figuring that out.

WalletHub recently released a report showing Columbus as the 12th-best state capital to live in the United States. 

"Columbus has a population growth rate of over 6 percent over five years, one of the highest among all state capitals," WalletHub analyst Jill Gonzalez said. "This is a result of high-quality secondary education, as well as one of the largest shares of millennial newcomers. The city has some of the most affordable restaurants and bars per capita, which are among the things that make it attractive for the younger generation."

Austin, Texas, ranked as the best state capital to live, and Baton Rouge, Louisiana, ranked as the worst.

Check out the report.
