Professional sports aren't the only thing we're ruling these days. One state placed three communities in the top 10.

11 championship parades in recent years, an entire season dedicated to pumpkin spice, and many other factors weigh into why we, as resident believe New England is one of the greatest places to live. Turns out, the rest of the country agrees...again.

Honestly, how many of these lists are we going to top? Nearly annually, pices of New England scatter multiple top 10 lists. While we may (likely) not be cool enough for Amazon's HQ2, plenty of people desire our way of life. According to, "Small-city life can be best for those who appreciate more wiggle room, fewer degrees of separation and shorter commutes, to name just a few of its advantages. Granted, these little urban areas demand some tradeoffs, too, such as fewer restaurant options or shorter business hours." Okay, obviously written by someone who lives in a big city.

Wallet Hub points out the cost of living for a two-parent, two-child family is about half of a big city. (they were comparing Hanford, California to San Francisco) While Leawood, Kansas came in at #1 on the list, Massachusetts took three of the top 10 slots. Milton at #5, Needham at #6, and Newton sliding in at #9.
