2011 AMERICA’S BEST PLACES TO LIVE, CHICAGO NOT ON THE LIST

Money Magazine released its 2011 “Best Place to Live in America” list today.  While Chicago is at the top of my list, it did not seem secure a place on the their list.

Coming in as the number one place to live is Louisville, Colorado.  It boasts some of the lowest crime rates in Colorado and with a population of 18,400, has an extremely low unemployment rate (6.3%).

One of the top reasons it was found to be the best place to live, is the abundance of jobs in tech, telecom, aerospace, clean energy, and health care.  In this tough market having a healthy job market is a definite draw.  It also offers world-class mountain biking, hiking, and skiing in the nearby Rockies.

Lucky for local residents, they have also experienced a steady real estate market, with housing prices that have barely moved since 2005.  Add this to their incredible school system, which consistently ranks among the top three academically in Denver, and you have a winning combination.

If you have not been to Chicago, it is a beautiful city with many incredible amenities.  Don’t believe the hype, come find out for yourself.  I love Chicago and would not want to live any other place in the world! 

FULL LIST OF TOP PLACES TO LIVE

MOVE TO CHICAGO TODAY…
