  • San Jose? Really? I grew up in the bay area and most of it is pretty bad, including San Jose.

  • Awww Yuppieville, err Naperville, finally got bumped off the list. I wouldn't be surprised to hear the new top 10 are just as fake and pretentious as Naperville, though.

    I live in Chicago; Naperville is truly one of the G-d-forsaken-culture-free-suburbs.

  • I"m a native Bostonian, and think it's a GREAT city to raise a family--great schools (suburbs), cultural and sports events, colleges, hospitals, close to the ocean and the mountains--a little bit of everything!

    We live n PA, just over the NJ state line, and my husband grew up in Edison, NJ, and has worked for the same company there for the past 28 years....he's not fond of the area as far as raising a family goes....so I think he would laugh at that it was considered "TOP 10!" LOL :o)
