Those searching for a good and affordable place to settle down need look no further than Abington after the Montgomery County township found its place among the 100 best places to live in the United States, according to a recently published list by Money.com.

To create the list, Money.com looked at places with over 50,000 population. Larger cities were broken down into neighborhoods.

Then, over 80 separate criteria were used to determine the ranking that measures the economic health, cost of living, diversity, public education, income, and health and safety.

Abington, a town with 55,240 population, has a median household income of $87,555 and a median home price of $278,045 which placed it in 74th.

The town earned its place on the list thanks in part to its projected job growth of 3 percent, average commute of 30 minutes, and a nice 205 clear days per year.

Abington is one of only two Pennsylvania towns to make the list, with the second being Shadyside, a neighborhood in Pittsburgh, which landed at No. 94.

According to the list, the best place to live in America is Clarksville, Tennessee.
