CNN Money has come out with its annual list of the 50 Best Small Towns in the US.
Westport is not on the list.
Three Connecticut towns are — Brookfield is #26, Cheshire’s 39 and Simsbury squeaks in at 50 — while the absolute bestest place to live in the entire country is (of course!) Sharon, Massachusetts.
We did not crack the Top 10 Earning Towns, either. Scarsdale, New York is #1, while Weston is 2 and New Canaan 5.
No other place in New England — and only 7 other towns in the country — can boast they’ve got a bunch of 12-year-olds battling for a world championship.
That’s a lot of pressure on these kids — bringing home the bacon their CNN Money-reading parents couldn’t provide.
Go get ‘em, guys.
Take that, Sharon and Scarsdale.
And especially you, Weston and New Canaan.
