CNNMoney.com recently came out with their Best Places to Live list. Rochester ranked 16th on the shortest commute list with a median time of 12.4 minutes. That means less time in the car, and more time with family, which we love.
PS- Did you see that Minnesota towns claimed five of the top 25 spots in the overall category (including number one?). I like living in a state filled with "terrific small cities [that] boast plenty of jobs, great schools, safe streets, low crime, lots to do, charm, and other features that make a town great for raising a family." It couldn't be more opposite to our last state of residence (Nevada).
