Thinking of relocating over the summer or sometime soon?
You’re not alone.
Here are the Top 10 Best Places to Live in the U.S A. for 2007.
How are the Top 10 best places to live chosen?
These top 10 cities were “determined by statistics and feedback of the people who live, work & play in these communities” and compiled by the editorial team at Relocate-America.
Throughout the calendar year, they accept nominations for cities and towns all across the nation as a “great place to live”.
The nominating parties must include their own reasons why they feel their city should make the list. The nominations, along with key data regarding education, employment, economy, crime, parks, recreation and housing are reviewed, rated & judged by our editorial team. Special consideration is taken on the Top 10 Cities as they are listed in a ranked order of America’s Top 10 Places to Live.
The Top 10
- Asheville, NC
- Traverse City, MI
- Ithaca, NY
- Chicago, IL
- Cary, NC
- Portland, ME
- San Francisco, CA
- Stevens Point, WI
- O’Fallon, MO

Interested in the Top 100 Best Places to Live in the U.S.?
Here is Money Magazine’s list of 2006 (latest) top 10 best places to live and also best places by state.
If the city or town you had in mind didn’t make the top 100, you can still locate the community you have in mind. First, select the state, then community (or region), then the city or town. Here you can browse homes currently on the market. learn more about your prospective city of choice, and/or request a relocation packet.
Yes, this is all done through Relocate-America. No, they didn’t pay me to post this story.
You can obtain some of this great info through your local real estate agent or a chamber of commerce, as well, but this is a handy tool that you can use at your discretion (and while you sit in the comfort of your own home) to learn more about where you may want to live. It’s also worth noting that they have taken the time to study the nominated cities’ key data regarding education, employment, economy, crime, parks, recreation and housing.
Take from it what you will as you nail down your next great move.

I started as a home-stalker… visiting brand new homes under construction in the neighborhoods near my house. That inspired me to write about home building and home renovation projects — chronicling homes during different phases of construction from a consumer's point-of-view. Basically, the tips you'll find in my articles are a collection of checklists for what I think should (and should not) go into building or remodeling a quality home.
