What does Adam have to say?


Can I Just Make A General Statement?

Madison is a great city.  

Seems like those responsible for the 'Best Of' Lists are starting to take note again. 

A week or so ago, Madison was ranked the best city in the nation by Kiplingers for Young Adults.  Now, new study ranks the best cities for seniors—and guess who's #2?

The Milken Institue says when it comes to big cities, none in Florida crack the top 10. "The traditional notions about retirement, about pulling up stakes and moving somewhere warm, doesn't really reflect accurately the notions of retirement in America," says the chief operating officer at the Milken Institute, which ran the study. Researchers looked at factors including health care, educational opportunities, job opportunities, transportation, cost of living, and recreation to determine the best cities for aging.

Looks like I'm stayng for a while

The top 10 big cities:
  1. Provo, Utah
  2. Madison, Wis.
  3. Omaha
  4. Boston
  5. New York
  6. Des Moines
  7. (tied for sixth) Salt Lake City
  8. Toledo, Ohio
  9. Washington, DC
  10. Pittsburgh
