How Stuff Works posted a list of the best places families can live in the US. Some of the surprises for me, on this list, were:
- Minneapolis, MN - I didn't know it was so highly rated, I really must visit sometime. That whole region of the US gets way too harsh a rep because of their winters.
- San Francisco, CA - with a history (I was going to write hysteria) of overly expensive real estate, I would have thought this wouldn't be that good a place...then again, high-income families make for well-funded school districts--and great dining and shopping areas!
- Albuquerque, NM - I really need to visit New Mexico, I shouldn't have been surprised this city made the list. It's such a cultural melting pot of exciting events, wonderful artists, and delicious cuisine.
- Fishers, IN - hardly does an "up and coming" bedroom community, a good community make. The term indicates money and other daytime activities are being spent/taking place elsewhere. Not sure about this place.
