Hello! I’m here to let the cat out of the bag today on a secret that I very briefly mentioned last month. Don’t get too excited now- it’s not really a big deal.
I wouldn’t consider myself a regular reader of Money magazine, but this particular issue catches my eye every single year. I always have to read it- because who doesn’t want to know where the “best” places to live in the U.S. are?! (“Best” is subjective of course- Money bases their decisions on how well a town is doing economically, from unemployment rates to job growth to housing appreciation, affordability and more; whether it’s a “good” place to raise a family: plenty of green space, good schools and a strong sense of community, etc.)
If you happen to be out at your local newsstand, grocery store, library or any other place where you can buy magazines, you should pick this issue up and thumb through it a bit.
If you read the main featured article, you’ll see that the town of Sharon, Massachusetts is named the #1 Best Place to Live. Number two is Louisville, Colorado, which is the town next-door to where I live.
