Here are the REAL criteria.
Carmel, Indiana. Median house value is 2.5 times higher than the state average. Black population is 2.2%, Hispanic 2.5%. And now we know the real reason why Carmel Indiana is the best place to live. It is the most expensive and the whitest. OK. Thanks. Bye.

How did Irvine (which is 39% Asian-American), or McKinney (which is 18% Hispanic or Latino) make the list, then? Sorry guys...you're not going to convince me that a good list is bad with conjecture and nonsense

Very good point. The one in my area is Redmond, WA- which is just a suburb of Seattle. Sure it has all of these great things and is a great place to live for people who can afford it, but it only has most of this because it is a suburb. If it was out in the middle of nowhere as its own freestanding town, it would not have all of these great amenities. Same goes for most on this list, from the ones I have been to.

Of course not. If it was from the website, I wouldn't have needed to look it up elsewhere and inform you of it.

Aren't you glad I took 30 seconds to wiki it more thoroughly and prove to you that it is, overall, a bunch of bunk, then?

AND Indiana would have about the same educational attainment as MISSISSIPPI without Hamilton county. If you think Indiana has been perfoming at a high level you obviously haven't traveled to much of the rest of the state like I have.

Newton strikes again.

They do have good school there. And access to the Green Line into Boston.

So where is Victoria, TX then?
