In their July issue, Kiplinger revealed their list of the top ten good value cities. They began with cities that have a score under 100 on the national cost-of-living index. This means they fall below the average in what it costs to live there. The editors then visited the top cities to set the ranking.
The cities on the list ahead of Colorado Springs are Omaha, NE (1st), Charlotte, NC, and Nashville, TN. Pretty good company, I’d say.
The things they liked about Colorado Springs included the 36% of residents that are college grads, it’s a regional hub for large national employers, rental and utility rates are very low, and of course our Pikes Peak backdrop.
If you have a reason to want additional people to come to your town, being on this list is surely a good thing.
