The Bestest.. Almost

Tuesday, May 09, 2006

While I'm sure just about everyone who lives here already knows this, it has been published yet again that the Twin Cities area is one of the best places in the nation to live. Woo Hoo!
We've been #1 several times, but this year we seem to have slipped a little and somehow Nashville snuck in and stole the top spot. Bastards! Obviously the rankings didn't take into account music.
Here's some excerpts from the Star Tribune article about the Kiplinger's Personal Finance magazine report:
"Only Nashville outranks the Twin Cities in affordability and livability, according to "50 Smart Places to Live" in Kiplinger's Personal Finance magazine."
"The Minneapolis-St. Paul area also rates highly for its range of leisure activities -- from stellar and plentiful live theater, to a hometown team for every flavor of sports fan.

The area is lauded for its highly educated population and diverse economy.

The one area where Minneapolis-St. Paul was a clear loser? The weather. Even so, '[Minneapolis-St. Paul] blew away the competition.'"


Yeah yeah, so we spend a large chunk of the year with water in various forms for frozenness all over, but it's worth it ya sissies!

So, when y'all gonna come visit? :O)

I agree with the article (but you know that). Another area where TC could improve is the snowboarding/skiing area. I get to recruit at U of M next fall so I will visit then. More shots I suspect...
