The Howard County city has been named the “Best Place to Live” in America by Money magazine. It was the only Maryland town to make the list of 50 released on Monday.

One of the most successful planned communities in the country, Columbia is a magnet in the Baltimore–Washington corridor, attracting families in search of good schools and businesses hungry for educated employees,” the editors of Money magazine wrote.

Money creates the rankings by looking at all American cities with populations from 50,000 to 300,000 and ranks them based on 60 different factors, including median household income, median home prices, high school graduation rates and crime rates.
