Liberty is a great place to live, and has the accolades to prove it. In 2011, the city was named one of America's 100 best places to live by CNN Money. But Liberty was not just in the top 100. It placed as number 7, making it one of the top 10 most desirable locations to live according to that publication, which cited the area's close proximity to Kansas City as an asset. Liberty has clearly come a long way since its Wild West days.
