    Best Places to Live 2012

    Money – Mon, Aug 20, 2012 9:04 AM EDT

    Like selecting a soulmate, finding a great place to live can’t be done just by the numbers. This year, MONEY set out to find America’s best small city (pop. 50,000 to 300,000). Using data from Onboard Informatics and other sources, we identified locations with economic strength, quality health care, low crime, great schools, and lots to do. Then reporters visited top-scoring places to assess what the numbers can’t tell you — whether a town is a true community.

    1. Carmel, IN

    Top 100 rank: 1

    Population: 80,100

    Carmel’s business district now has the second-largest concentration of office workers in Indiana and an unemployment rate that’s just over half the national average.

    The city also has excellent schools, a big sports and recreation center, a performing arts center, and wide bike lanes. All that, plus a variety of housing options ranging from older homes to new subdivisions, and you have an irresistible draw for families.
