Families move often and for varied reasons. In fact, according to Wallet Hub (who's stats rated Colorado Springs as the 10th best city in the nation for families), the average American can expect to move an estimated 11.7 times during his or her lifetime, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
Moving can be a sign of either opportunity – a new job or long-term wealth accumulation, for instance – or of instability like foreclosure or job loss. The key in either case – whether you’re a newly married couple or a victim of America’s economic transition – is to choose an area conducive to economic prosperity and the overall pursuit of happiness.
With that in mind, WalletHub compared the 150 most populated U.S. cities based on 30 key metrics that take into account essential family dynamics such as the relative cost of housing, the quality of local school and health care systems, and the opportunities for fun and recreation. While obviously not perfect – given the intrinsic value of each city, personal preferences and the limitations of publicly available data – our findings will hopefully give prospective movers a sense of which areas offer the greatest opportunity to achieve wallet wellness and, of course, live a long and happy life.
Colorado Springs ranked 9th in the nation with exceptional opportunities for family friendly activities like the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, heath and safety, exceptional schools, education and childcare, overall affordability (including new homes in Colorado Springs) , and socioeconomic environment!
