Woodbury named a top city in national list

A national website listed Cottage Grove's neighbor to the north as No. 5 in its list of best places to buy a home in 2011. called Woodbury the best place to raise kids among its top-10 list unveiled Dec. 31.

"There are so many great places to raise kids, but this suburb 10 miles from St. Paul has a lot going for it," states the website, owned by AOL.

Austin, Texas, topped the list, followed by Deerfield Beach, Fla., and Broomfield County, Colo.

The site, which notes the list is "mostly unscientific and partially biased," based its rankings on "a grab-bag of lifestyle priorities" and thorough reporting.
