DC Top City for Families
The accolades continue to pour in for DC as Parenting Magazine named the District the top city in the country to live in and raise a family. Parenting used a set of 84 categories including great schools, affordable homes, low crime rates, jobs and parklands to calculate their rankings.
This DC top ranking for families follows several other recent chart topping recognitions including:
- #1 Performing Real Estate Market
- #1 Smartest City
- #2 City For Young People
- #1 For Inbound Migration
- #2 City for Working Moms
DC ranks high for its vast array of museums and multitude of parks and bike trails. Traffic congestion and high housing prices are two of the top challenges facing our region. With long commutes and escalating suburban home prices, many families are forgoing a move to the suburbs and choosing a DC rowhouse to raise their family.
