LA named top town by website

-A A +A

Community > Crime rate, schools among big factors in No. 1 ranking

By The Staff

Los Alamos has again been named as a top place to live, this time by the website Livability.com.
Los Alamos was picked the best small town in the country, according to the website.
In compiling its list, Livability.com analyzed data on towns with fewer than 20,000 residents. Towns were rated based on cost of living, health care spending, racial and socioeconomic diversity and numerous other factors.
In all, 41 metrics were used to determine the top small town in the country.
“Throughout the U.S., we’re seeing a resurgence of emphasis on downtowns in cities of all sizes,” Livability.com editor Matt Carmichael said in a press release, announcing the list. “It’s nice to see in the big cities, certainly, but it’s especially great to see these smaller towns not just holding their own, but also thriving.”
According to the website, Los Alamos “offers an extremely low crime rate, top-rated schools, excellent health care, cultural amenities, outdoor activities and delicious restaurants, setting the city apart from the rest and making it our pick for the best small town in America.”
Good weather and access to Bandelier National Monument and the Valles Caldera were also cited as big pluses for Los Alamos.
