Yeah that's a bizarre list. Half are understandable choices and the other half are crazy.

Also, "if they could work from anywhere" is the equivalent of "assume a spherical cow."

Which is what makes this list BS, because I'm sure when Framingham people worked from the office the satisfaction was way the hell down; Route 9 & the Pike are 5mph (if you're lucky) parking lots through that town during rush hour.

\also, had no idea they decided to finally give up the "biggest town in the state" bs to become a city

"the best place to have Zoom meetings because of a pandemic", doesn't correlate with "we have an awesome nightlife". Which TFA claimed.

Are you supposed to win your own invitational?

FTA: ""Framingham has all the makings of a perfectly situated city, providing the convenience of the nearby metropolis of Boston"

I fail to see how a "nearby metropolis of Boston" is a convenience.

hey, my hometown is #4, Frederick MD.

But I don't think the list is complete BS.

Ignore that, apparently the page hadn't loaded past the top 20.

List is BS.

Framingham... huh.  Who knew I had such a gem of suburban living so close by.

Pass.

Ashburn is #5 on Money magazine's list, was #1 a few years ago.  About 100 wineries, breweries and distilleries nearby, what's not to love?

Top 2 cities in Colorado:
9. Colorado Springs
36. Aurora

Bonus:
50. Albany, NY

I actually could work from anywhere, but gave up before finding my city listed. Those 3 would be on my "hard no" list regardless of other circumstances.

That was an awful list.

How does this list work?  They find a bunch of people from a town, and ask them "how many places can you think of that you would rather live?"

I lived and worked in Framingham, back in the day. It was OK. I've lived in better places, and lord knows I've lived in worse ones.

When I was living there, everyone I knew in the area called it "Framingpork" or "Framingfish". Make of it what you will.
