West Hartford has earned the no. 15 spot on Money Magazine’s ranking of the “Best Places to Live” in the United States. The list included all U.S. towns and cities with populations of 50,000 to 300,000, for a pool of 823 to start. The list was drilled down to the Top 50 in America using 60 data points in the following categories: jobs, economy, housing affordability, education, health, crime, arts and leisure, and ease of living.
West Hartford was praised for its outstanding schools, entertainment choices, shopping and dining districts, short commute times, charming housing stock, affordable housing projects, and Playhouse on Park, which has grown into a regionally, if not nationally, acclaimed institution.
West Hartford was one of three Connecticut towns that made the list and one of five from New England. West Hartford ranked higher than all five.
