What Are the Best Cities for Families?

What Are the Best Cities for Families?

Do you like the city where you live? Parenting.com has evaluated 100 American cities according to 5 factors they say make a city great for families: great schools, affordable homes, low crime rates, jobs, and parkland. Their ranking places Washington, D.C. in the number one spot. Other top-ranked cities are Austin, Texas, St. Paul/Minneapolis, Minnesota, and Honolulu, Hawaii. 

Circle of Moms is based in San Francisco, which ranked fairly low at #63 — but we love it all the same!

It made us wonder, what actually makes a city a great place for raising kids? Is it truly about the abundance of basics (good schools and jobs, affordable homes), amenities (parkland), and safety (low crime rates)? Or does it come down to how rooted to the community you and your family feel?
