To create this year's Top 100 Best Places to Live list, the Livability team spent hundreds of hours researching cities, interviewing locals and even doing some taste-testing (choosing the best brewery in each city was a tough job, but somebody had to do it!).
In the process of gathering so much information about 100 awesome cities, we also found a lot of weird, fun, not-totally-relevant-but-still-cool facts that didn't make it into the final text. From internet cats to Garth Brooks to some seriously strange laws still on the books, we couldn't resist compiling our favorite tidbits and sharing them here.
You can thank us later, when you use one of these to clinch a win at trivia night.
