DailyFinance.com: Top 10 Places to Live on $100 a Day

Morgantown, W.Va.

Vibe: Small college city combines Appalachian roots with a strong local economy
Sunny days per year: 185
Median home price: $168,900

While Morgantown may be the epicenter of Appalachia and proud of its hillbilly roots, the city -- and the entire region -- is far richer. Since the 1880s, coal mines attracted immigrants from around the world, who have influenced the local culture and driven the railroad, glass and mining industries. And, as the home of the first New Deal homestead community, its history is rich.

While its low unemployment rate and strong local economy are certainly its most touted strength, the city's big surprise is its excellent health care. Of our top 10, it ranks No. 2 in doctors-per-capita, beaten only by Gainesville, Fla.
