"These terrific small towns stand out in the qualities American families care about most - great job opportunities, top-notch schools, safe streets, economic strength, nice weather, plenty to do, and more."
The top three spots go to Louisville, Colo.; Milton, Mass.; and Solon, Ohio. Rounding off the top 10 are Leesburg, Va.; Paillion, Neb.; Hanover, N.H.; Liberty, Mo.; Middleton, Wis.; Mukilteo, Wash.; and Chanhassen, Minn.
It is noteworthy that the least represented geographic region is the American West. Of the 18 cities that made the cut, 10 are located in the Mountain States of Utah and Colorado. The nation's most populous state, Calif., is conspicuously absent from the top 50, appearing thrice at No. 57 (Walnut), 64 (La Palma), and 83 (Clayton).
