Life is sweet in Carmel. Among its upmarket amenities, the city counts a $24.5 million water park and mega-fitness center, a 1,600-seat concert hall, a 500-seat theater and even a Japanese-style garden -- smack in the middle of the Midwest. The culture and manicured beauty of the area attracts high-paid professionals, many of them executives at the headquarters of Delta Faucet, Pearson Education and CNO Financial Group.
The city is even a particularly safe (and picturesque) place to drive, thanks to 80 landscaped roundabouts that curb traffic instead of traditional signals -- the most of any city in the country.
These terrific small cities offer strong job opportunities, great schools, low crime, quality health care, and a true sense of community.
