The Magic City is on a national list for the best places to live, according to a publication.

Billings is listed as number six on Kiplinger's 2013 Personal Finance List of 10 great places to live. The list focused on cities with a million people or less, and ranks the qualifying cities based on jobs, housing, schools, and healthcare.

Other cities on the list include Little Rock, Ark., and Anchorage, Alaska. To look at the complete list, click on Connections.
