Default Minnesota Top 10 cities/towns

What do you think are the top ten most livable, best cities/towns in Minnesota. I saw topics like this in a few other states so i fugured I might as well start something similar here. I got an idea in my head of my list, but I think I'll wait for a few others to respond before posting.

Minneapolis
St. Paul
Richfield
Bloomington
West St. Paul
Duluth
Rochester
Detroit Lakes

This list is in order of what I find to be the most livable. Realistically though I don't think I'd want to live in any of them past the first 2, maybe 3.

Here is my list:
1. Duluth
2. St. Paul
3. Ely
4. Minneapolis (Downtown area by Mill district)

I wouldn't want to live anywhere else in Minnesota-maybe Stillwater area or Red Wing, but I would need to spend more time in thsoe places to be sure.
