How would you like to live in one of the top 100 cities in the U.S.? If you read the most recent issue of Money magazine, you already know that Mt. Airy is one of those cities. I knew the city I lived in was great, but I had no idea it was that great. Pre-selection critieria included size and multi-ethnicity, but other criteria focused on safety, job opportunities, education, sense of community. The article was based party on research and partly on interviews of the city's inhabitants. I always knew that I appreciated the beautiful countryside, light traffic, variety of interesting things to do, and the relatively low cost of living in Mt. Airy, but evidently there are more aspects of Mt. Airy to appreciate than I even realized. I have previously blogged on Concetta's Italian Grocer and Restaurant, the Vintage Coffee House, and the child care center, but I now feel a new ethusiasm for my local community and I am gratified that the well-respected Money Magazine agrees with my choice of home. If you are thinking of moving to this vicinity, please consider Mt. Airy. You'll be glad you did!
