Best Small Towns to Live InAs much as I love living in a big city, I think there's something great to be said for the adorable qualities of small-town life. You know, driving around and seeing tons of people you know, walking into the grocery store and knowing the butcher by name, and of course, the unique town traditions that make your town special.

CNNMoney recently conducted a survey evaluating the top 10 best small towns in America. The criteria? No, not the taste of their signature apple pie or the friendliness of the mayor. Instead, each town was evaluated on their income levels, population, crime levels, house prices, and number of gardens and parks.

Spanning from the east to west coasts, check out the top 10 small towns to live in America, here:

Have you been to any of these towns? If you had a choice to move to one, which one would you move to?
