Kiplinger recently ranked top cities to live for people at 5 different stages of life: singles, young couples, families, empty nesters and retirees. As Kiplinger says, “Key to our Smart Cities list were places where you could buy an attractive house for $300,000 to $400,000 or less. Access to quality health care was also a must, as was a strong economy. Once we narrowed down the list, we traveled to the cities that bubbled to the top to speak with residents and savor the flavor of their neighborhoods.”
Minneapolis-St. Paul ranked in 4 out of the 5 categories: singles, young couples, families, and empty nesters. No other city ranked in 4 categories; only Austin Texas ranked in all 5 categories. (For more information, visit the Kiplinger article (Smart Cities for All Stages of Life).
