    North Star was ranked as one of the Top 20 Suburbs in America and the top suburb in Delaware, according to an analysis from Coldwell Banker Real Estate and OnBoard Informatics.
     
    Coldwell Banker partnered with Onboard Informatics, a leading provider of trusted real estate information and technology solutions, to identify the Coldwell Banker Real Estate Best Places to Live for “Suburbanites” (those who love backyard BBQs, prefer nights at home and crave relaxing days in a park, or shopping at the nearby mall).
     
    The areas analyzed are all U.S. Census designated places, incorporated places and county subdivisions, which include minor civil divisions and census county divisions (all as defined by the United States Census Bureau). Towns with fewer than 1,000 residents were excluded from the Suburbanites ranking.
     
    Ranking is simply the ordering of places by their category score. Sort is in descending order such that the place with the largest category score receives a rank = 1. Unlike scores, ranks are calculated by top city/towns (1-100) and within each state (1-50).
     
    The following information details the top five best places to live for suburbanites by state, listed by state, rank, score, and city/town:
