Flipping America 311, Best Places to Live in America, 2019

Best Places to Live 2019

We are winding down to the end of 2019. It’s been an interesting year to say the least! Over the next several shows we are going to review this past year, look ahead to 2020, and consider some of those lists we love. On the last show we started looking at some of the Best Places lists. We continue with that today and we will begin with the Best Places in America to live. If these are great places to live, they are also great places to invest. Some of the results will surprise you and there are several towns I’m betting you’ve never heard of. We have results from the usual suspects such as Money magazine, US News and World report, cnbc.com, and USA today, but we also have results from a couple of websites you may not be familiar with, Niche and liveability.com. These two sites add an interesting spin on the best cities. I can tell you right now we are going to name a LOT of nice cities and towns in the next few minutes – the lists are not identical – in fact they are remarkably different because they use different criteria and weighting factors. But the point is, there are great places to live all across the country. And every one of those places will have a part of town that isn’t quite as nice as the rest of the town. Another piece of the story is that almost any place can be a good place to live depending on your personal criteria. For example, if you love golfing and motorcycling, almost no place in Minnesota will be ideal for you. But if you love winter sports, snowmobiling, and long winter nights in front of the fireplace, it could be just right.
