St. Joe? I would have to say it is one of the cities in the state that is not doing well at all, sure it's livable, but businesses are moving out and there is no sign of any revival at all.

I would hardly call San Jose one of the most livable cities. But that's just me. The same with Southfield...even though I will be moving there very soon.

Wow, I'm happy for STL to have made the list.

I don't agree with Fayetteville, AR - its a drab area. I have been there several times over the past few years if you are wondering.

I'm happy for Dearborn.

The city has worked hard to make improvements and the Arabic population has breathed life back into once sliding areas.

But they have only one cab company for 100,000 citizens.

And they are sorry s.o.b's toward customers due to that.

I think Honolulu should be first on that list...But other than that the top ten most livable cities list they made is way off! C'mon Arkansas?...

Maybe the title should be changed since many disagree with the results i think the awards are mainly because of improvements that each city's mayor has made.

I guess you have not been to Fayetteville very recently! It is only one of the fastest growing Metros in the country. And voted as one of the top cities in America in dozens of categories!
