All across America, there are places where people are kind and treat each other with dignity and respect. However, you might not think so with what you see on cable news or read on social media. That's why Reader's Digest teamed up with Good Morning America and 10Best.com to ask the question, "Do you live in the Nicest Place in America?"
We received 450 nominations from coast to coast, representing every kind of place and more ways of being "nice" than you can count. Then we did the painful work of narrowing down those submissions to these 10 Nicest Places in America.
10Best and Reader's Digest readers voted for their favorite Nicest Place, and the winner was just announced on Good Morning America. We're happy to share the results with you below.
Yassin’s Falafel House in Knoxville, Tenn.
- Bothell, Wash.
- Ellijay, Ga.
- Enoch Pratt Free Library in Baltimore
- Kalamazoo, Mich.
- Katy, Texas
- Life Moves Yoga in Killeen, Texas
- Mower County, Minn.
- North Evergreen Street in Burbank, Calif.

The panel that selected the winner and nine finalists included Robin Roberts, co-anchor of ABC’s Good Morning America; Bruce Kelley, Chief Content Officer for Reader's Digest; Geri Weis-Corbley, founder of the Good News Network; Paige Brown, 62nd Mayor of the Reader's Digest 2017 Nicest Place in America (Gallatin, Tennessee); Emilie Starr, co-host of BYUtv's hit hidden-camera show Random Acts; and Randy Taran, founder and CEO of Project Happiness.
