Indiana Suburb Tops 2017 Survey Of Best US Cities To Live In
Life in the big city can get very tiring when all you see is concrete and moving cars. Sometimes, you might want to consider moving back to your quaint hometown or starting anew somewhere where the quality of life is quite but great for raising kids and retiring. If you have ever considered that plan, here is a city you might want to consider settling in:
Top Spot Goes to Fishers, Indiana
There are a lot of factors to consider on what makes a certain place really good to live in. Money Magazine, in particular, considers job opportunities, the presence of good quality public schools, recreational amenities and a low crime rate as they rank which cities are good for living in and which are not. You might be surprised that some of the most livable cities are not big name cities, but it looks like you have to consider settling here if you are looking for a place that is ideal for raising kids and growing old in.
For this year, the top spot has been awarded to Fishers, Indiana. This suburb is a fast growing one as it boasts an 11.5 percent job growth projected until 2021. It has also a redeveloped downtown and some extensive infrastructure plans including an expansive waterfront park.
Of course, it is not too shocking to see that every entry in the top ten goes to suburbs. The quality of life is generally much better in a quiet suburb with great facilities than it will be in the big city, where people go head to head in search for opportunities.
While the top spot goes to Fishers, Indiana, second place goes to Allen, Texas. Monterey Park, California follows in at third while Franklin, Tennessee is at fourth. Olive Branch, Mississippi comes at fifth place while Dickinson, North Dakota is at sixth place. Lone Tree, Colorado comes in at seventh while North Arlington, New Jersey is at eighth. Schaumburg, Illinois takes the ninth spot while the list is capped off by Bozeman, Montana which comes at number ten.
