Livability.com has named the Top 10 Small Towns 2013, the second installment in an annual listing of those towns sprinkled between the major highways and busy airports.
And Los Alamos has made the list.
With one of the highest concentrations of Ph.D. holders in the nation, Los Alamos stands out as the “smartest” small town. Innovative education, health and recreational programs have earned the city and surrounding county national recognition, including such titles as “healthiest” and “wealthiest” places in America. The city’s location atop the Pajarito Plateau, near the Jemez Mountains, not only provides breathtaking views, but gives residents easy access to high-altitude sports such as mountain biking, skiing, rock climbing and hiking.
For this installment of the Livability.com List of America’s Top Small Towns, editors narrowed their search to micropolitan areas, steering clear of big-city suburbs and communities considered part of a larger metropolitan region. Editors also considered population and economic growth rates, comparing employment trends, cost of living and other economic factors.
