The ten best cities

Filed under: The world today — John Maass @ 10:47 am

Kiplinger’s Magazine has its new list of “the ten best cities in which to live and work,” which is to say places with “strong economies and abundant jobs, then demand reasonable living costs and plenty of fun things to do.”  Obviously this is quite subjective, but the results are interesting none the less.  None of the locations are in New England or the Mid-Atlantic regions, and only one is in the Midwest.

No. 1: Houston


No. 2: Raleigh


No. 3: Omaha


No. 4: Boise


No. 5: Colorado Springs


No. 6: Austin


No. 7: Fayettville


No. 8: Sacramento


No. 9: Des Moines


No. 10: Provo

  1. With the possible exception of Austin, I don’t think existence in any of these great cultural centers would be recognized by anyone we know as “life”.
