Only on AM – MONEY Magazine reveals list of the 100 best small cities to live in America

Reporters for MONEY magazine recently spent months combing through information about America's small towns (those with populations of less than 50,000) to find out which stand out for possessing qualities that American families care most about.

The publication took numerous factors into consideration when compiling the list,  including job opportunities, fiscal strength, top-notch schools, safe streets, good health care, cultural and outdoor activities, and even nice weather.

Beth Fenner, assistant managing editor for MONEY, joins American Morning today to explain why they decided to focus on smaller cities and to break down the top five towns on the list.
