379 Green American Cities

Country Living just released their second annual list of the 379 Top Green Cities in America. They ranked the locations based on green fundamentals, such as "energy policies, green power, green buildings, and the availability of fresh, locally grown food."

Chicago made an amazing leap from last year's slot! We hopped the lily pads up from #192 to a very decent #93. That's pretty good but we know we can do better.

Jump down to see where the other AT cities landed and to find out which one deserves a big pat on the back...

San Francisco made us proud by coming in at #11! LA impressed us with landing at #40. Newbie Boston is right behind them at #49. Our other rookie, Washington DC, ranked #102, just one step ahead of New York (#103). Next year, we aim for one (or all!) of AT cities to make the Top Ten.

To view all the findings, visit Country Home for a full list, the Top 25, or a regional map.
