List of the Top 100 places to live in America.
How we select a community to make the TOP 100:
1. The community gets nominated by a current or past resident, or other individuals familiar with the community’s benefits. The nomination includes a brief description explaining what makes the community a special place to live and is submitted to and reviewed by Relocate-America’s editorial team.
2. The nominated towns are compared against education, crime, employment & housing data for the past year.
3. The final excepted nominations are then compared based on the number of votes and inquiries they received over the previous year and the TOP 100 is then selected.
From the TOP 100 we then select the TOP 10 communities receiving the most nominations and rank them accordingly. The remaining 90 are compiled alphabetically to equally recognize those top communities on the list. Each year- thousands of communities across the U.S. are nominated and considered for the list.
THE TOP 10 (*hollie's note* two of these are within an hour of me!)
1. Venice, FL
2. Paragould, AR
3. Edmond, OK
4. Bonita Springs, FL
5. Asheville, NC
6. Colorado Springs, CO
7. Bartlesville, OK
8. Carlsbad, NM
9. Huntington Woods, MI
10. Madison, WI
OKC, OK is on the list too. As is Sierra Vista, AZ where I used to live.
See, living rural/non-metro is GOOD! lol
