Feel free to move to cities with higher crime rate, worse schools or depressed property values. I know you can careless about culture value of list If your city is on list, you are not living in a slum

I don't even want to see my state on the list. People in Upper Bumfluck, North Dakota see the list and want to move here. The out-of-staters usually buy the biggest mega-SUV possible, and then drive in convoys, blocking the curvy roads. Luckily, most are too lazy to turn the steering wheel back and forth so they take the interstate.

No. 5 was Louisville, CO, between Denver and Boulder. The people who live there are afraid of Denver, but can't afford the half-million dollar houses in Boulder. Watch, in five years Louisville will be having all kinds of problems from being on that list. Happens to all the top rated towns.

I don't think so!

I mean I like my city and all but its not home. I can't wait to live back where I grew up! This is ok for now but it's just not the same.

Tally is nowhere near the list...and I am glad...We have top 5 rated school system in the state...My daughter's grade school scored 2nd in the state on FL and No Child...testing...Low crime, 2 Universities, 15 minutes from Gulf of Mexico, and the best part is...yuppie trust fund babies like jetski haven't "found" it yet, so it slips under the radar of these people. Jetski, you couldn't live here anyway, it rains too much. With your nose in the air so high, you would drown.

Bee that is my point exactly. Those cities are just the ones that have been filled with self important whiners! Ya know, like Nicholus Cage says in "Gone in 60 seconds".

But also, Bee, that was a awesome stabb! Too funny! I MEAN...I MEAN... you shouldn't say such things!
