It seems that your criteria are mainly about avoiding death well
rather than living well. While the above are certainly a big plus for
any location, it would hardly be the central issues if I wanted to
move anywhere. My list of criteria would instead center around the
density of interesting people, information sources and events in the
vicinity. "Best" is after all a highly subjective thing.
