The county is all abuzz today about the newest CNN/Money rankings of the best places to live in America. The Columbia / Ellicott City area came in at number 2 in the biennial rankings. That’s a move up from our eighth place ranking in the same survey back in 2008.
The top spot picked by the editors was Eden Prairie, Minnesota. I’m sure it’s a very nice place but perhaps a little too cold for my liking. The average winter temp is in the single digits.
Since we’ve moved up six places from the last time around this will be a hard act to follow two years from now. Perhaps we should take a page from the perenial number two car rental company, Avis, with their marketing campaign, “We Try Harder.”
