Santa Barbara does it again being named in Livability.com’s list of top 100 places to live! Everyone who is fortunate enough to live here knows how wonderful it is, but now everyone else knows it too! Noozhawk recently covered the story:
The list is the result of a months-long study of U.S. cities and the factors that make them better places to live, work and play. Livability.com partnered with the Martin Prosperity Institute, the world's leading think tank on the role of location, place, and city-regions in global economic prosperity, to produce the list.
"This is the first time we have focused on measures for specific cities instead of metropolitan regions," said Kevin Stolarick, Ph.D., research director at the Martin Prosperity Institute. "While getting consistent, reliable data at the cities level had its challenges, the results were worth the effort. Great cities are more than just a check-list of bars, coffee shops and museums.

Scoring in at #37, Santa Barbara now has proof that it truly is one of the best places to live.
