I agree with Burlington, it is such a wonderful place and Orlando and Detroit at the bottom are also dead on.

They should write more about their methodology. The New York City metro did extremely well, which I'm sure is a surprise to most people (including those of us who live here).

I agree with you. I'm surprised that NYC is one of the best places to raise kids. I guess that NYC have it all

The link is to page 3, page 1 lists some of their criteria. (crime, safety, cultural attractions, education, housing, economics, health, etc.) Not sure if that counts as methodology or not.

Nebraska does well having two cities in their top ten. Not that many here would necessarily care about Nebraska, but still interesting if not that surprising.
