Kiplinger's - 50 Smartest Places to Live (Holland & Ann Arbor made the list!)
Life, Personal Finance
Kiplnger's asked it's readers to tell them what criteria they would use to pick a place to call home. Using those responses, they made a list of the 50 Smartest Places to Live based on where you can find good value in homes and reasonable cost living combined with a great quality of life.
They looked for places when you could find:
-an attractive home for under $400,000
-access to quality health care
-a strong economy
-a fun and vibrant atmosphere.
They worked with Bert Sperling of BestPlaces.net to compile a database of cities matching the requirements, and then traveled to cities that emerged at the top of the list and talked with residents and savored the flavor of the neighborhoods.
Notables on the list:
