West Chester among best places to live in America

West Chester among best places to live in America”

Citing its friendliness with small businesses, the Hamilton County city was named the No. 1 place to live in the country by Money magazine.

The Bend profile, written by Sergei Klebnikov, points to the city's history, skyline and transformation "into an global mecca for outdoor enthusiasts".

Compiled with realtor.com, the list also recognized that the city has a projected job growth rate of 4.6 percent; a high school graduation rate of 87 percent and a typical "200 clear days per year".

And, as nearly always, "livability" is mentioned, such as the fact that "the town is incredibly dog-friendly" - and also, of course, "another key element of the Bend lifestyle: beer". It then ranked the remaining 2,400 places based on economic health, cost of living, public education, crime, ease of living and amenities.

Reporters also researched each place, interviewing residents and checking out neighborhoods.

Other Illinois cities to make the list were Wheaton, which came in at no. 27, followed directly by Villa Park at no. 28 and Des Plaines, which ranked at no. 35.
