(User Submitted) – If you follow the advice of Money magazine, you'll want to live in a non-diverse suburb of a not-too-gritty city. The top five places to live are Eden Prairie, Minn.; Columbia, Md.; Newton, Mass.; Bellevue, Wash.; and McKinney, Texas. The rest of the list is dominated by more suburbs and lots of towns in rural areas. The largest place on the list is Scottsdale, population 235,000, at No. 71. According to Money, the list spotlights places with "plenty of jobs, great schools, safe streets, low crime, lots to do, charm, other features that make a town great for raising a family."

If you click on the link, you see that a number of those on the list are actually upper-middle class-to-wealthy enclaves. Ex: Average Price for #3. Newton, MA = $989,445. (And I live in the DC suburbs, so I /know/ high home prices.)

Scottsdale is awesome, if its 71st I can't imagine what the others would be like. But lists like these always fuel debates and page hits.
