Downtown Phoenix may be the literal urban core of the Valley, but the region has no shortage of downtowns — and two recently were named among the most affordable to live in, according to a new study.

GoBankingRates included Peoria and Chandler on its list of the 30 most affordable downtowns across America.

The personal finance website analyzed a series of data points across U.S. ZIP codes to pinpoint the best places for downtown living. The site looked at information such as median home prices, rent, utility costs and price for a monthly transportation pass.

Peoria squeaked in at the bottom of the list at No. 30, while Chandler landed at No. 28.
