Albany -- Albany is one of the best places to do business in the country. Inc. magazine ranked Albany number 19 on its list of small cities that are havens for thriving businesses. Albany was recognized for it's outstanding environment for entrepreneurs and small businesses.

"There is a lot going on in Albany we have a lot coming in," says Albany entrepreneur Mark Thornhill. "We have our new mayor doing a lot to bring it in and Tommy Coleman was doing a lot to bring it in,"says Thornhill.

Small cities chosen for the list were pulled from cities with job bases of less than 150 thousand. Atlanta was named as best city in the large metro area category and was the only other city in Georgia named on the list.
