Every year, Money Magazine prints their "50 Best Places to Live" article, using economic growth, affordability, and quality of life as factors to decide their list. This year, TWO Music City suburbs made the list, including one in the Top 10.
For what it's worth - Frisco, Texas (a suburb of Dallas) came in at #1 on the list.
The rest of the Top 5 include Ashburn, Virginia; Carmel, Indiana; Ellicot City, Maryland, and Cary, North Carolina. And then just outside the Top 5 at #6??
The magazine says
Low unemployment, booming job growth, short job commutes, and breweries aplenty make it an ideal place to set down roots. Two highly ranked school districts (plus an array of private schools) assure parents their kids can receive a quality education.
Murfreesboro also makes the list at #19, but no other towns from Tennessee cracked the Top 50.
