Yes, according to CNN, Eden Prairie tops the listof 100 Best Places to Live in America (in the small town category). Surprised? We were, a bit, but only because we didn't know that "Not only is it family-friendly, it has a dynamite economy too. At 5.1%, its unemployment rate is nearly one percentage point below the county rate and more than four points below the national average. It helps when you've got 50,000 jobs right in town." But wait, that's not all: Minnesota has 4 other towns in the top 20: Plymouth ( 11), Woodbury (13), Eagan (15), Apple Valley (20). Take that California!

UPDATE: Not to be outdone by CNN, our own Jason DeRusha makes his own 'best of' list....for the days of the week! And you'll never guess who's in the top four! Submitted by @marrina.
