Zillow ranks the best cities for kids

  • Zillow created a list of the nation's best places for children by searching listing descriptions for kid-friendly terms across the 100 largest cities in the U.S.
  • The study also searched for nearby parks and theme parks, big yards and an established community of families.
  • Texas was home to some of the study's top finishers, with four of the top 10 cities sitting in the state.

As much as it felt like your parents didn’t care about what you had to say growing up, child-friendly homes and communities are a high priority for homebuyers with young families, especially those moving to a new city.
