Life can be hell for the indecisive among us.
We're bombarded with perplexing choices every day: Cash or credit? Buy or rent?
And then there's the decision that many Americans might just agonize over the most: city or suburb?
How important is your location to you? When searching for a place to live,
generally each person (or family) has something at the very top of their priorities list,
which is the single most important factor for them in choosing a home. For many people, this factor is location.
We all know the seductive advantages of big-city living.
But there are plenty of charms found in small-town America, too—towns where you chat with your neighbors at the grocery store,
local kids ride bikes in packs across tree-lined streets, and moms hang shirts to dry on the backyard clotheslines.
Sure, small towns lack the nonstop excitement and endless opportunities of urban living. But these places are a heck of a lot cheaper.
And many have great schools, charming historic homes, and a great sense of community.
The realtor.com data team set out to find the best small towns in America where you can find affordable and often beautiful housing, safe communities—and, just as important for former city dwellers, plenty of things to do.
Here are Top 10 Affordable Small Towns Where You'd Actually Want to Live In America for 2018:

Driving from Salina, KS to Denver, CO via I70
I made it almost half way across Kansas last evening, and then a good night sleep in Salina, but Kansas is one wide state, so still have a long way to go to make it to Denver and Boulder Colorado. Feeling good. Looking forward to seeing the Rockies!!!

Beach Drive, Lake Michigan, Harbor Springs, MI. 2016
Beach Drive, Lake Michigan Summer Houses, Harbor Springs, MI., Driving East to West from Pennsylvania Ave. toZoll Street. Nestled along the deepest harbor in the Great Lakes, lies the charming waterfront community of Harbor Springs. Discover the iconic and scenic Tunnel of Trees, stroll through beautiful downtown shops and explore lighthouses along crystal clear waters. Enjoy four seasons of events and activities for all ages in the Little Traverse Bay area of Northern Michigan.
Harbor Springs is a city and resort community in Emmet County in the U.S. state of Michigan. The population was 1,194 at the 2010 census.
Harbor Springs is in a sheltered bay on the north shore of the Little Traverse Bay on Lake Michigan. The Little Traverse Lighthouse is a historic lighthouse on the Harbor Point peninsula, which shelters the deepest natural harbor on the Great Lakes. M-119 connects with US 31 7 miles (11 km) east and south at Bay View, and Petoskey, which is 4 miles (6.4 km) away on the south side of the harbor.
The area is known for its historic summer resorts, such as Wequetonsing, which was founded by Illinois businessmen and lawyers Henry Stryker, III, and Henry Brigham McClure. They were both connected with the Jacob Bunn industrial dynasty of Illinois.
The European-American settlement started with a mission by French Catholic Jesuits; they called this area L'Arbre Croche, meaning Crooked Tree. In 1847, L'Arbre Croche had the largest concentration of Native Americans in Michigan. French traders renamed the area Petit Traverse, or Little Traverse, when they arrived in the area. After more settlers came to the area from the eastern United States, they changed the name of the village to Harbor Springs, incorporating it in 1880.
The federally recognized Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians are descendants of the numerous Odawa bands that historically occupied this area. They have their tribal offices in Harbor Springs, and a gaming resort in Petoskey. Their reservation lands encompasses approximately 336 square miles (870 km2) of land in Charlevoix and Emmet counties.
One of the city's more prominent European-American residents was Ephraim Shay (1839–1916), known for his invention of the Shay locomotive. The hexagonal-shaped house he built in downtown Harbor Springs still stands today and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The local elementary school is named after him.
Another building of interest is the Douglas House on the shore of Lake Michigan. Designed by noted architect Richard Meier and completed in 1973, this house is one of 150 structures listed in 2007 as America's Favorite Architecture by the American Institute of Architects.
Harbor Springs was the location of the Club Ponytail, a famous music hall destroyed by fire in 1969
According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 1.30 square miles (3.37 km2), all of it land. Harbor Springs has a lot to offer during the summer months, including beaches, sailing schools, marinas, multiple golf courses, bike paths, hiking trails, ice cream shops, candy stores, coffee shops and various summer vacation communities. In the winter months the two ski resorts Nub's Nob and Boyne Highlands offer over 678 acres of skiable terrain as well as terrain parks and various trails for snow shoeing & cross-country skiing. When Little Traverse Bay freezes over in the winter months, many people venture out on the ice for ice fishing and ice boating.
Harbor Springs is a few miles from neighboring Petoskey, Michigan, on the other side of the bay. It offers a wider variety of activities, including a multiplex movie theater, a thriving downtown area of its own, and several big-box stores.
