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.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Bernice Corpuz reports

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.

      Large parts of town are devoid of commerce, but East Milton Square does have a grocery store, CVS and a number of restaurants and quick food options. So it’s not really true that there are “no stores or supermarket.”

    Yes I’m sorry, you’re right, I forgot about East Milton and the shops there and the market. Very nice stores there. Milton is very woodsy and a beautiful town and they also have Trailside Museum, a natural history museum that has many of the wildife there on exhibit native to New England and also a big ski slope next to it if you want to do some skiing.
