Chaska makes Money magazine's Best Places to Live
This year, Money magazine's annual America's Best Places to Live feature focused on smaller cities, between 7,500 and 50,000 in population. Middleton, Wisconsin, (pop. 17,400) earned the top spot with the lone Minnesota entry in the Top 10, Chaska, (pop. 22,500) coming in at No. 8. The magazine cites the exurb's technology and biotech firms, as well as its small-town charm, including a city square gazebo where concerts take place every Friday night. Apple Valley came in at No. 28 and Vadnais Heights ranked 36th. Read the profile on Chaska here, and review the rest of the Top 10 here.
