Minneapolis named a "Top 100 Place to Live"

Minneapolis is one of the "Top 100 Places to Live," according to RelocateAmerica’s 14th annual listing of the top communities in America.

RelocateAmerica compiled the list, identifying the best communities that are well positioned for economic recovery, are already experiencing strong economic recovery or have proven overall economic stability. Factors such as employment, education, community leadership and overall quality of life are strongly considered and all the data is examined to determine the Top 100.

This year, folks across the country can vote for the Overall Top 10 Places to Live. It's part of a year-long initiative to give local residents and leaders direct input about how their community rates in various quality of life categories. The deadline is July 31, 2011 and the results will be released on August 2, 2011.

The 2011 Top 100 Places to Live list along with archives of previous years' winners can be viewed at RelocateAmerica’s website.
