3 Best Cities to Raise a Family in the US
It’s the way they take all the responsibilities of ‘momming’ and make sense out of them, finding stillness amongst the hysteria of family life and put everyone else before themselves. That’s what makes us such superstars. No. Such superwomen. We want to give our family the best life we can possibly have and we’ll do anything you have to do to make that a reality, even if that means picking up your phone, booking in with mybekins.com, packing our every belonging and moving to someplace entirely new; somewhere made for family happiness.
And you know this already. I have written about moving to another country or city before and strongly believe if such a change is part of your therapeutical self-care, you must go for it. Or at least start prepping. And yes, it is not easy to just pack up your bags and go. But there is always a starting point- researching for information on moving to another country or a new city, what can you expect once you do etc are all part of this HUGE decision. So I hope, my posts on moving internationally or locally will help you with that. Begin with creating a Moving Checklist. Yep! You should have one 😉 Then build up a plan to carry out your transition seamlessly so you and your family can have an enjoyable experience through and through the process.
Now if you are wondering about moving between cities and wondering which ones are coolest cities in the US for families, I have some suggestions. If this has already crossed your mind a couple of times and dance about your brain at 2 o’clock in the morning as you tried to sleep, this list of 3 best cities to raise a family in the US should help! A list of metro areas that are super-suited to family life and raising happy kids. Don’t worry, though, these are all family friendly cities you can actually afford to live in. If you know, you know.
1. Greenwich, Connecticut
Most people recognise this place because it always seems to rank in the top five safest cities in the U.S. But that’s not the only thing that makes it a perfect place to raise a family. It’s also consistently cited as being one of – if not the very – best place to live because it’s home to such a dynamic culture. There is also a train that travels to Manhattan’s Grand Central Station in less than 45 minutes, giving you the perfect suburban life with the city on your doorstep. Oh, and let’s not forget the schools. It’s got one of the best public school to college graduation ratios out there.
2. Franklin, Massachusetts
Franklin is famously and consistently ranked as the very safest town in the entire nation. But that’s not the only big tick you need to mark next to this city. Since 2007, there have been serious kudos-points awarded to the Franklin High School because it almost always see’s 90% of its students attend college, and in recent years, more and more are being accepted into Ivy League schools. As for activities, take your pick. There’s a nearly limitless list of sports on offer here, from lacrosse to basketball, wrestling to “Babe Ruth” baseball, ice hockey to flag football, and a thousand more.
3. Irvine, California
You know the Wall Street Journal, that massively successful and respected paper. Well, it named Irvine as the “Best Run City” in America, and for good reason too. We’re talking about excellent public schools, a bustling economy (thanks to the major US businesses in the area), and the lowest crime rate out of all cities in the entire nation. But let’s skip all these stats and whatnot and get into the stuff that we want to hear because this city is home to dozens and dozens of parks, three public libraries, and even the Irvine Global Village Festival, which celebrates the diverse cultures of the local population. It’s epic. It really is. And it’s in The Golden State.
