The personal finance magazine rated cities on whether household income exceeded the national average of $49,536; the percentage of singles in the city -- must exceed the national average of 49.4 percent -- and the average price of a date night that entails two movie tickets and a bottle of wine.

BOYDS - The historic Joseph White House, a jewel of formal Georgian architecture in rural Montgomery County, was once the majestic centerpiece of a prosperous 19th-century tobacco and livestock farm.But today, the red brick, sandstone and wood building has succumbed to erosion, rot and the appetites of termites to an extent that it is barely standing.Holes in the brick wall where a front porch was once attached look like pockmarks on the face of an old Southern gentleman. The house was condemned and abandoned in 1988.
