Roswell makes Money Magazine top 100

Roswell was named one of the best places to live in the United States by Money Magazine this week. It ranked 76 out of 100 cities with populations between 50,000 and 300,000 residents. Roswell was also ranked number 24 on the list as one of the top-earning cities in the country with a median income of $113,750.

“They got it right," said Roswell Mayor Jere Wood. "Roswell does have some of the best public schools in the state, the lowest crime rate in the region, a family friendly environment, and great community events. It's easy to understand why families flock to Roswell.”

Money Magazine wrote, “Historically rich Roswell is committed to a family-friendly environment. Residents love their many public events, including the monthly Alive After Five summer festival, with plenty of food, shopping and live music.”

In ranking cities for the top 100, Money Magazine used data on income, housing, education, quality of life, crime statistics, leisure and culture, the tax rate, and weather.

Roswell was the only Georgia city to place in the top 100. Eden Prairie, Minn., topped the list.
