10 cities with things kids (and their families) like

Dec 2 2016

If children could choose where to live, families would be swarming to a handful of spots in Texas, at least according to Zillow’s ranking of the best cities for kids.

Zillow considered four factors in creating its ranking from the 100 largest U.S. cities: percentage of kids under 10 (for friends to play with), percentage of homes listed with kid-friendly terms (such as playroom, game room, and tree house), number of parks and theme parks per 10,000 people, and median yard size.

Of Zillow’s list of top cities for kids, four are in Texas. The list includes:

  1. Corpus Christi, TX
  2. Madison, WI
  3. Fort Worth, TX
  4. San Antonio, TX
  5. Greensboro, NC
  6. Charlotte, NC
  7. Tulsa, OK
  8. Wichita, KS
  9. Anchorage, AK
  10. Dallas, TX

Small-town Feel

David Motley, president of Colonial Savings, said he’s not surprised by the inclusion of his city, Fort Worth, in third place.
