Living anywhere has its pros and cons.

On one side there is the thrill of living in a big city. In medium-sized locations, you can find that you have the best of both an "almost" large city feel and the connection of a small town. However, the comfort of a small town is unmatched.

According to Debt, there are “7 financial pros and cons of living in a small town.”

Pro: Lower cost of living

Con: Fewer job opportunities

Pro: Cheaper housing

Con: Fewer entertainment choices

Con: You’ll need a car

Pro: Lower auto and home insurance rates

Con: Higher airfares

I fully understand these pros and cons, but an Alabama Town just made Far & Wide’s, “America’s Coolest Small Towns” list. In researching this town, it beats all the cons on the above list.

Let me introduce you to Magnolia Springs, which looks like a town made for a Hallmark movie.

It’s “located along the Magnolia River. Magnolia Springs dates back to 1800 and is mere minutes from Mobile, Alabama. This isn't a suburb, however. No, this is a sleepy town of adorable houses and canopies of oak trees, azaleas, wisteria, dogwoods, and, of course, magnolia trees,” said Far & Wide.

Stacker used data from the 2020 County Health Rankings to rank every state's average life expectancy from lowest to highest. The 2020 County Health Rankings values were calculated using mortality counts from the 2016-2018 National Center for Health Statistics. The U.S. Census 2019 American Community Survey and America's Health Rankings Senior Report 2019 data were also used to provide demographics on the senior population of each state and the state's rank on senior health care, respectively.
