Damn, Fayetteville. Why you gots to be so badass? With all these high rankings, we can hardly even keep up.
Last week it was Sports Illustrated and now it’s the “timely, trusted personal finance advice & business forecasters” Kiplinger’s who has ranked us #7 among the Best Cities to Live, Work and Play for 2008. Not bad!
With our 90.4 Cost-of-Living Index and 31.4% Percentage of Workforce in Creative Class we have jumped into Kiplinger’s Top Ten through a process that is based on work done by Kevin Stolarick, of the Martin Prosperity Institute, “a think tank that studies economic prosperity.”
We don’t have the time (or patience) to try and figure all that nonsense out but we do have time to say this: Duh, we rule. Didn’t ya’ll already know? No? Well now you do.
Unique perks of Fayetteville living include free bus service for university students and residents. The weekly Farmer’s Market doubles as a no-fuss community social. Seniors over 65 may take university classes for free.
