Each year Money Magazine takes a look at the best places to live in our great nation, 2014 was dedicated to the best small cities (populations between 50,000 and 300,000).

The list of candidates included nearly 800 but after considering some 50 variables that affect quality of life such as the local economy, schools, housing options and access to medical care the list was winnowed to the top 50 small cities to live.

With a population just south of 60,000 people Mansfield, TX was ranked #17. Highlights of Mansfield's strong ranking include nearly 11% employment growth, high household income and affordable housing.

The article also references the 800 or so acres of great parks such as Elmer W. Oliver Nature Park.
