Have you visited Sperling’s “Best Places” website?  (www.bestplaces.net)  If not, check it out.  Its got loads of cool categories, ranking cities in terms of greenness, best places to live, most difficult to navigate, etc.  Check out your closest city and see how it stacks up.  Here is how DC tallied:

Best Cities to Live in, Cohousing

Ranked #1 Best Cities for Teleworking – Extra Large Metro Areas
Ranked #2 Healthiest Cities
Ranked #2 Most Difficult Cities to Navigate
Ranked #3 Most Irritation Prone Cities
Ranked #3 America’s Riskiest Online Cities
Ranked #4 Best Airports to Make a Connection
Ranked #4 The Most (and Least) Gender Imbalanced Cities
Ranked #5 2005 High Gas Prices
Ranked #5 Sleep in the City Study Examines Relationship Between Sleep and Happiness
Ranked #5 Most Secure Places to Live 2011 (Large Metros)
Ranked #6 America’s Least Manly Cities
Ranked #7 Cities on the Edge of Greatness
Ranked #9 Most Secure Places to Live in the U.S. (Large Metro Areas)
Ranked #9 Second Annual “America’s Manliest Cities” Rankings
Ranked #9 America’s Most Playful Cities

If you play around much on the site, beware of the criteria used to rank them.  For example “on the Edge of Greatness” is great for men to live in and includes such random measures as music, hometown sports, and interest in BMX games.  Still, many of them are legitimately useful!

If you’re from the DC area, do you agree with these rankings?
