Livability.com’s annual Top 100 Best Places to Live list ranks small to mid-size U.S. cities in “livability,” taking into account a city’s economics, housing, amenities, infrastructure, demographics, social and civic capital, education and health care. The study, a joint effort between Livability.com and the Martin Prosperity Institute. This year, Towson, Md., was ranked 42nd.
The list noted Towson University, the Towson Town Center, and the Towson Bike Beltway. The Bike Beltway may have been the crucial factor. It’s new this year, and last year, Towson didn’t make it into the ranking’s top 100.
By the way, if any of you Towson residents are ever looking to move to a different city with virtually the exact same degree of livability, try Portland, Maine; Tempe, Ariz.; Alameda, Calif.; or Renton, Wash. Their scores match Towson’s.
