Texas City Scores “Big” in Small Cities Contest

Bruce R. Partain

Well, another poll has come out, and I’m not sure who the people are that decide on the results, but if Texas is involved, and it’s a favorable vote, then hey — I’m all for believing in its truthfulness.

This time around, the vote was centered on the top 10 “best small cities”, five of which I’ve seen up close and personal, and one that I actually lived in.

So, the winners are…

10.  Chapel Hill, NC

9.   Overland Park, KS

8.   Columbia/Ellicott City, MD

7.   Reston, VA

6.   Irvine, CA

5.   Redmond, WA

4.   Newton, MA

3.   Eden Prairie, MN

Coming in at the runner-up position was none other than McKinney, Texas located in Collin County.  Sporting a population around 130,000, McKinney was originally a commercial center that assisted farmers.  The city itself was named after Collin McKinney, signer of the Texas Declaration of Independence.

Not only does McKinney rank number two here, but according to a CNN Money Magazine study in 2010, it ranked as the fifth best place to live in the United States.

CONGRATULATIONS, McKinney!

Incidentally, Carmel, IN was the number one “best small city”.
