Morrisville has been named 90th Best Place to Live in America on the annual Money Magazine’s “100 Best Places in America to Live” list. According to Money Magazine, 70 different types of data were used to rank eligible towns in the categories of economy, cost of living, education, housing, crime, amenities and ease of living. Morrisville was one of only three towns in North Carolina to make the list.
“The quality of life in Morrisville is fantastic,” said Morrisville Mayor Mark Stohlman. “The Town, the Chamber of Commerce and all of our partners and residents have worked hard for years to position Morrisville as a community of choice in Wake County, not to mention in America.
“We focused on this long time goal last year when we adopted the new slogan, ‘Live Connected. Live Well.’ and there is no greater indicator of living well than to be on Money Magazine’s list of Best Places to Live in America.”
“The sense of community is what really sets Morrisville apart,” said Morrisville Chamber of Commerce President Sarah Gaskill. “People are welcoming, and it has helped us to attract and maintain a strong local economy that provides good jobs, great healthcare, and all of the amenities that people are looking for when they choose a place to live and do business.”
Money Magazine looked at communities with populations between 10,000 and 100,000. Places that had double the national crime risk, less than 85% of its state’s median household income, or a lack of ethnic diversity were eliminated from the list, leaving 2,400 places to rank.
