Top 10 Best Cities in the US to live in

Kiplinger, the Personal Finance magazine, recently published (July 2008) an article talking about the best cities in the US to live, work and play. The selection is based on strong economies, abundance of jobs, living costs and fun things to do.

Based on their research, Houston, Texas topped the list. Today, Houston has a really great city infrastructure with its pedestrian tunnels that you could use during really hot days, light rail transit, an expanded convention center, a 12-acre park and a new stadium among others.

Also, they boast of a below national average cost of living and a healthy market of affordable houses. There are plenty of jobs available (more than 100,000 jobs generated in 2007) as Fortune 500 companies are starting to set up shop out there.

As for the other cities who made up the Top 10 list, here they are:

  • Raleigh, North Carolina
  • Omaha, Nebraska
  • Boise, Idaho
  • Colorado Springs, Colorado
  • Austin, Texas
  • Fayetteville, Arkansas
  • Sacramento, California
  • Des Moines, Iowa
  • Provo Utah

Hmmm, seems like most of the cities are out west. If you want to read the article, it is also available online here.
