CNN/Money has it's poll out on the best places to live in America.

Well, I never thought suburban Detroit would get on the list, but at least we were one of the contenders.

Did your town make the list?

i am not a bit surprised to see north suburbs of Detroit making the list.

and all the towns i have ties to (or have lived or family has property at) are all on the list. many are finalists. hooray for our assessed value!

Best Places To Live In America?

LAS VEGAS, NV

330+ Days of pure sunshine, no natural disasters, mild winter, 24-hour non-stop everything, world class entertainment, great airport (excellent viewing park), ample air service, good medical care, reasonable cost of living but the people are so damn polluted!

I am so glad I made the decision 2 years ago to re-locate here. But factors are keeping me away for months at a time.

The Detraiot metro area doesn't suprise me at all.
I like Michigan a lot. It's very affordable yet has many respected universities, 4 seasons, close to Canada, lots of outdoor activities and best of all, Northwest has a major hub in Detroit.  Cool






San Francisco ranked pretty high
Problem is that property is very high too.  Sad

Well, my city of Appleton WI isn't on the list as far as i can see, but It was named the safest city in America by some other news station.

and you forget Detroit gets a SLEW of live entertainment, concerts, special events, etc. Somerset brings in a lot of great fashions, too. i was very impressed with that mall. especially the north side....yum....

I used to live in Appleton and it is certainly not the safest place to live. No place can be deemed safe when half of its residents don Styrofoam cheese on their heads and pledge their allegiance to Packerdom  Wink.

New Jersey especially Bergen County  Wink Before you flame me :
It is close to New York, if you want the big city but you live in a suburban area, you can go to the beach which is very close and with Newark you have a nice airport to go spotting !!

My sister works for Mill Valley, California, which came in at #10. Great place...saw it myself on 4th of July weekend.

They are right about one thing.

You don't want to move to Nevada.

It's full!

Go somewhere else.

Besides, we are going to re-draw the state line so California gets Las Vegas and Nevada gets northern California excluding San Francisco and Sacramento.

The very short list of places I'd consider living in in the US:

New York City
Crested Butte, CO

That's about all I can think of.

How the hell did Peachtree City, GA. make the list? I can think of a lot nicer suburbs in the Atlanta area than Peachtree City. I've actually lived in #28--Wexford, PA. Although it's interesting, an article somewhere else raised the point that Wexford really isn't a town.

#40 Colleyville, TX. Yeah, it's a nice place, but it's too far from Dallas, and the whole city is just a giant prarie of McMansions.

I'd actually like to see this list with the suburbs of second and third tier-cities removed. Suburbs of Winston-Salem? Rochester, NY? Mobile? Syracuse? Augusta? C'mon...

I live two towns away from New Milford, CT - #67. How the heck do they call it a suburb of Waterbury? If anything, it might be considered a 'burb of Danbury.

what a joke! haha...peachtree city for georgia should never have been on there in the first place. More importantly, the listings for my state of North Carolina are totally off the mark. First off, not one of those towns is in WNC, which is undoubtedly the best place to live in the state (with regards to low cost of living). Durham is a finalist but Chapel Hill isn't? If any of y'all have been to Durham and then Chapel Hill you'll know that this is absolutely crazy.

Anyway, the town I live in when I'm in Georgia with my father's family (Dacula, GA) is on the list. I have to say though that my town in WNC (Bryson City) is a far more pleasant and agreeable place to live.

American Fork, UT / Centerville, UT / Riverton, UT for my state, those cities would be ABSOLUTE hell for me. They're all lower middle class suburbia with ugly new houses in slowly eaten away farmland about an hour from downtown SLC. For Washington, I understand Bainbridge I., maybe Vancouver (can't say I know much about it), but probably not Redmond.

Whoever wrote this list was on crack.

I wouldn't go so far to say that EWR is a nice spotting location.  Wink

Anyway, it is so hard to just say Jersey as a whole. From Vineland to Vernon to Brick to Cape May, there are so many differences. We have Camden, quite possibly the most dangerous city in the US, and then we have places in north Jersey that have few people (relatively speaking  Wink), let alone crime.

Anyway, I really don't want people to have a positive opinion of Jersey, it's crowded enough as it is. Just stick to the turnpike, and drive right through, please.  Smile

I am shocked to see all the stats for Tallahassee. I consider Tallahassee much safer than Hollywood but they have Tallahassee down as a shithole!
