National News: Top Places to Live in the U.S.


California had only one city in the top 50 best places to live in America this year. Dublin, CA came in at #7. I assume cost of living, commuting and housing affordability were big considerations because otherwise, our beautiful coastline, termperate weather and quaint little towns would surely make the Monterey Peninsula a top contender.

The suburbs did dominated this year’s list of top places to live in the country. Money magazine teamed with realtor.com® to identify its top picks of towns with populations of 50,000 or more. They factored in more than 135,000 data points, including economic health, public school performance, local amenities, housing, cost of living, and more. Here are the top 6:

1. Frisco, Texas

  • Median home price: $449,900

  • Median household income : $117,642

2. Ashburn, Va.

  • Median home price: $519,990

  • Median household income: $120,862

3. Carmel, Ind.
