Yesterday, Columbia was ranked #1 in Money’s “Best Places to Live in America” for 2016. We’ve made the list before, but this is the first time we’ve actually topped it.
As someone who grew up here and is now raising my family here, I couldn’t be more proud of my hometown. It was fun scrolling through my Facebook feed yesterday, as I read countless posts from old friends expressing similar feelings of pride over the ranking.
Of course, we Columbians have always known our town is the best, but it’s nice to have it official, if only for the next year!
