Atlanta: A Smart Place to Live

Kiplinger’s 50 Smart Places to Live was released yesterday with Atlanta making #4 on the list. The criteria, you say?

You told us you wanted good value in home prices and a reasonable cost of living — not surprising, considering that choosing a place to live is one of the biggest financial decisions you’ll ever make — combined with a great quality of life.

Top 10 after the jump.

  1. Nashville
  2. Minneapolis-St. Paul
  3. Albuquerque
  4. Atlanta
  5. Austin
  6. Kansas City
  7. Asheville
  8. Ithaca
  9. Pittsburgh
  10. Iowa City

Fun, vibrant and affordable. Any in agreement?

    I’d rather live in Austin if I could find a job there. And bring my friends with me.

    Plumdrank, I’m as cynical as the next guy, but really, “1000s of new ppl but theyre all boring?” Have you met them all?
