Austin has found a spot on the Top 10 Best Cities for Families list in the most recent issue of Parenting: The Early Years. The rankings were determined by weighing over 8,000 pieces of data over 84 categories. The results put Austin in second place in the study, behind only Washington D.C.
Austin was also second in the same list last year and the qualities that helped our ranking remained the same. Austin is a progressive city with a great climate, mostly warm and sunny. Other factors that helped us place second include SXSW, the proliferation of high tech companies, lots of pediatricians, parks, and farmer’s markets, and our generally healthy approach to living.
Here are the Top 10 Best Cities for Families, according to Parenting: The Early Years.
