Magazine ranks Fairfield 64th best place to live

Money magazine has named Fairfield the 64th best place to live in America in its 100 Best Places to Live 2012 list.

“The Town of Fairfield is very honored to receive this distinguished recognition,” First Selectman Mike Tetreau said in a press release. “From our AAA rating, beautiful amenities and thriving local economy to our excellent school system and impressive level of volunteerism, Fairfield has much to offer and so much to be proud of.”

This year, the magazine’s goal was to find “America’s best small city” with a population of 50,000 to 300,000. According to Money magazine, “These terrific small cities offer what American families care about most — economic strength, great schools, low crime, quality health care, plenty to do and a true sense of community.”

In choosing Fairfield as one of the best places to live in the country, Money noted Fairfield’s “highly rated school system, marinas, parks and five miles of shoreline.” The magazine listed Fairfield statistics such as financials, housing, education, quality of life, and leisure and culture. Crime incidents in Fairfield are ranked below the average scores of the other best places to live.

The “100 Best Places to Live in America” feature appears in the magazine’s September 2012 edition and may also be found at
