B.R., Lafayette named to Top 100 places to live list

Baton Rouge and Lafayette have both been named to RelocateAmerica's "Top 100 Places to Live in 2011." They were the only two Louisiana cities to make the 14th annual list, which is based on a number of factors, including housing, economic health, safety and input from community leaders. The list ranked the top 10 cities to live, but didn't categorize places outside the top of the chart. Austin, Texas, was named as the best place to live, and Grand Rapids, Mich., was second. RelocateAmerica is a directory of more than 6,000 communities with links to services to help people with relocating. See the full list here.
