Even though the U.S. Chamber of Commerce may not think so, Alabama is still a pretty good place to live and work. In fact, one of our cities was honored recently. Job growth and a diverse economy helped launch Huntsville, labeled the “Rocket City,” to the top of RelocateAmerica.com’s annual list of best places to live. Huntsville is home to the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center and boasts unemployment well below the national average. The Rocket City also ranked Number One on the site’s list of “Top 10 Recovery Cities,” those poised for a swift economic rebound or already experiencing growth. Huntsville has benefited from having a diverse economy, specifically within defense, aerospace and life sciences. Huntsville also ranked high on quality-of-life aspects, including safety and education
RelocateAmerica.com is a Web site that provides online resources to people who are moving. Each year, it collects nominations for its list of 100 best cities to live. In addition to the overall list, breakout lists include the best places to retire, the most “earth-friendly” cities, the top recreation cities and the top small towns. For the 8,000 nominations received for 2010’s list, the editorial team analyzed economic, environmental, education, crime, employment and housing data of the areas, interviewed local leaders and reviewed resident feedback to come up with rankings. The overall list is put together for consumers who are considering relocation options, with a heavy emphasis on places where there are positive job possibilities.
