BOSTON (CBS) – Milton is one of the best places to live in America, according to a new report.

It came in second in Money Magazine’s annual survey of the 100 Best Places To Live.

Louisville, Colorado is number one.

“We looked for a combination of things that the typical American family would want in a place to live. So those include good schools, safe streets, good health care, cultural and outdoor activities,” said Money’s Elizabeth Fenner.

Here’s how the magazine described Milton:

Milton is just minutes from the jobs and culture of Boston but feels in places like a country getaway. Tree-lined streets are dotted with historic homes. Single-family home prices have remained essentially unchanged since the market’s peak in 2005. One major reason for this stability is the outstanding school system, which boasts six brand-new buildings and offers such rich opportunities as a French immersion program that begins in elementary school. The downside: high taxes.

Hanover, New Hampshire ranked 6th, while Sharon and Acton were 11th and 16th on the list.
