Best Places to Live in the US, New Jersey has 2 Towns Named Best
We love New Jersey and we know we live in the "best" place in the world. (Some might be smirking at that.)
Money.com recently put out a list 50 best places to live in the United States. Two towns in New Jersey made it on the list, according to nj.com. We have so many awesome, beautiful towns here at the Shore. Just to name a few, Ship Bottom, Toms River, Pt. Pleasant Beach, Seaside Park, Brick, I could go on and on.
The two towns that made the list are Bridgewater at #31 and Mount Laurel is at #16, WOW. - This is all of the towns throughout the country, way to go Mount Laurel.
Money.com considered towns with populations of 25,000 or more. They removed the places that had more than double the national crime risk and the medial income level lower that 85% of its state's median. Economy, housing market, cost of living, diversity, public education health and safety and weather and lifestyle were all considered in building the list, according to nj.com.
Here are the Top 5 Best Towns in the US, according to money.com.:
#1 - Evans, Georgia
#2 - Parker, Colorado
#3 - Meridian, Idaho
#4 - Rockwall, Texas
#5 - Columbia, Maryland
Have you ever been to one of the top 5 towns? I've been to Columbia, MD...it's cute, but nothing like one of our adorable Jersey Shore Towns. Give me Seaside Park any day over Columbia, MD.
