Who would want more?

Choosing where to settle down and raise your children is an important decision. Your job and being around family are important. But so are other factors like schools, cost of living, recreational activities, and more. That’s why our friends at StorageCafe released a data-driven report on the best cities for families with kids. And one North Carolina city ranked as one of the best to raise children in. While we already know that NC is a great place, it’s nice to see it confirmed by others!

What makes a great environment for raising children? Safe neighborhoods, access to quality education, and cultural and outdoor opportunities for one. Additionally, in this economy, you need to factor in affordability and the job market. With families in mind, Storage Cafe ranked the 100 largest cities in the country. Rankings were based on 29 metrics, including public school ratings, safety, home prices, cost of groceries, the share of families with children, cultural and outdoor recreation opportunities, and more.
