LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

Lake Charles has been named the fifth-most exciting place to live in the state by movoto.com.

The real estate website said it used seven criteria to rank the 50 cities/areas in the state with populations over 10,000.

The criteria were: nightlife, live music venues, active life options, arts and entertainment and fast food restaurants per capita as well as the percentage of non-fast food restaurants and percentage of residents 18 to 34 years old.

Motovo's Lauren Allen had this to say about Lake Charles, "though not entirely a college town, (the city) has a lot of that feeling to it."

New Orleans was ranked No. 1 on the list and was followed by Houma, Gretna and Lafayette. Baton Rouge was ninth, DeRidder was tied at No. 13, Sulphur was No. 32, Moss Bluff was ranked No. 48 and Jennings was No. 50.
