Ann Arbor has made the news again! According to this year's CNN Money magazine list of 100 best small cities in America, Ann Arbor - the only Michigan city to make the list - is number 46. With the main campus of the University of Michigan, as well as Borders Books' headquarters located here, Ann Arbor is a small town with all of the amenities of cities far larger.
The compilers of the list reviewed over 700 US cities with populations ranging from 50,000 to 300,000. The analysis included a look at an array of variables including affordability of housing, local economies, quality of health care, and education. And the news gets even better for Ann Arbor.
Rated #4 on Parenting Magazine's list of Best Cities for Families, Ann Arbor continues to excel in education at all levels. Forbes.com named Ann Arbor as one of America's "most livable cities," based on ranking of crime rate, cost of living, arts and leisure, and a number of other qualities.
Those are but a few of the opinions coming from the national scene. What do local Ann Arbor residents think of the town? Local opinions bear out Money's notes that Ann Arbor is "a mecca of arts and culture, with museums, theatres, and galleries. Golf courses and biking and hiking trails are never far away". AnnArbor.com's annual Community Choice Awards were posted in June. Among their eclectic list of findings were:
