ST. LOUIS, MO - A finance magazine ranks a few cities in Missouri among the nation's "smart" places to live.

St. Louis, Kansas City, Columbia and Jefferson City all made Kiplinger's Personal Finance magazine's top 50 "Smart Places to Live."

Kansas City made the top ten, coming in sixth.  St. Louis followed at number 18.  Columbia was ranked 24th and Jefferson City was ranked 35th.

The top factors in the ranking were cost of living, homes, crime, health care, climate and environment and education.

Nashville, Tennessee, made the magazine's top spot in the nation.
