What are the best towns to live in the U.S.?

Living in the U.S., we certainly have our pick of places to live. From big to small cities, large to small towns, quaint villages, and remote locales, we may choose to live somewhere that gives the quality of life we are looking for. And sometimes the best quality of life can be found in towns where the pace of life is a little slower, where we can take the time to stop and smell the roses (and fresh air). Hadley, Massachusetts is one such town in New England with a population of 5,000 people and plenty of gorgeous farmland.  Other slower-paced towns with open space and smaller populations are Stevensville in Montana, Murphys in California, Front Royal in Virginia, Pecos in Texas, Essex in Connecticut, and Ionia in Michigan.
