Topeka ranked one of the ’10 Best Cities for the Next Decade’
Topeka and Des Moines ranked in a top 10 alongside Austin, Seattle, Boulder and D.C.? Believe it.
Topeka cracked Kiplinger’s Personal Finance Magazine‘s “10 Best Cities for the Next Decade.”
“In its reserved, midwestern way, Topeka has engineered a prosperity that most cities of similar size would envy,” writes Kathryn A. Watson. “As the capital city of Kansas, nearly 25% of Topeka’s workforce is employed by the government, providing a stable job market where unemployment has stayed around 7%. The city boasts quality schools, friendly people, good hospitals, a university and — one of its biggest selling points — low housing costs.”
