When it comes to choosing where to move, the decision becomes instantly harder when children are factored into the equation. Concerns like safety, amenities, and school systems become important requisites for finding the right place to call home. Recently, Forbes compiled a list of the 10 metros with the highest populations under the age of 14, mapping out the areas where families with young children are choosing to call home.
The city with the highest under 14 population. Salt Lake City. SLC is followed by Houston, Dallas, San Bernardino. San Antonio, Raleigh, Indianapolis, Atlanta, Memphis, and Phoenix. As you can see, the cities are spread pretty wide throughout the country, with a large chunk of the locations all within Texas.
Northside – Jackson and Smith school districts, Garden Hills, Collier Hills and Chastain Park are great places
Eastside and Midtown – some of the best family neighborhoods in any metro city in the country – Ansley Park, Midtown North of Ponce De Leon, Virginia Highland, Inman Park … of course, Morningside and their desirable elementary school
