If you've had this feeling in your gut that now is the time to make a move, do it!  Change is hard but 25.6 million Americans packed up their items in 2023 and did it, so I know you can muster up the courage too.  But, you probably need to figure out where that new city is going to be.  If Illinois is the state on your mind, below is the one spot in the state that was just picked as one of the Best Places to Live in 2024 by Money.com.


One Illinois Town Listed as One of the Best Places To Live in 2024

Although I lived in Iowa, a state that borders Illinois, I never really spent much time there as a kid.  That all changed when I got married though because my inlaws lived in Rockford, Illinois.

Thanks to those visits, I've tasted some of the best pizza, had a chance to see the silver bean, and am a lot more confident driving through big cities like Chicago.  Tolls aren't something we have in Iowa and it was confusing at first to pay to see family, but now it is just what we do.  I'm a pro at all of the I-pass information.  FYI, the I-pass works on the East coast but it does NOT work on the Kansas Turnpike.  Learned that lesson the hard way.

I'll be back in Illinois soon and am going to check out the town that was just picked as one of the 50 Best Places to Live in 2024 by Money.com.  Get a sneak peek at it below along with the rest of the best places on the list.  Who knows, you may find your next dream city!
