Money Magazine came out with its annual “Best Places To Live” rankings [for cities with populations of 50,000 to 300,000] and Dallas-area cities fared quite well. McKinney came in at #5, and its next door neighbor Allen was #16. Rowlett made the prestigious Top 25 at #24. Topping the list was the unlikely hamlet of Eden Prairie, MN, a town of 64,000 that lies 12 miles south of Minneapolis. Yeah, sure, I would definitely rather live in central Minnesota than anywhere else in the entire country.
