Sugar Land Is The 3rd Best Place To Live In The U.S.

Although Adrian briefly mentioned this, I thought I’d elaborate a bit more, being a Sugar Land-ian (is that a word?)…

Having already been considered as one of the Best Communities for Young People and as one of the Best Places to Raise Your Family , Money Magazine and CNN/Money have chosen Sugar Land as one of the best places to live in America. Reasons cited for this ranking include the low cost of living, the diversity, and the number of job opportunities. Last year, Sugar Land was chosen as number 46.

I’m not surprised that Sugar Land ranked so highly. I’ve lived in the area for the last 14 years, and have seen a great deal of development. I can still remember when Highway 6 was practically empty on both sides, and now its full of businesses and restaurants. I personally consider Sugar Land to be an amazing city, filled with the modern conveniences of larger cities while maintaining that small town charm.

You can see signs all over the city celebrating this award…congratulations Sugar Land, you deserve it!

    Holy crap — from the 40’s to #3 in one year?? What happened that made it jump up so quickly? I’m intrigued, as I’ve spent maybe 8 hours tops in SugarLand.

    yeah, it’s a bit of a shock to me…having never lived in sugar land, but i can understand why it’s up in the tops.

    Wow, Highway 6 is now lined end to end with stores that can be found in every other town in America! Now that is special.
