Is the Springs the best place to live for families?

A recent Wallet hub study (http://wallethub.com/edu/best-cities-for-families/) ranks the area the 9th best city in the country for families, based on family activies and fun, health and safety, affordability, etc.

What do you all think? Agree or disagree?

The city is so family friendly I feel like an outcast since I am a single young professional.

Interesting. Is that feeling pretty strong? We've been entertaining the idea of moving to CS for multiple reasons. My wife and I are in our early 30's and do not have kids nor plan on having any in the near future. We have got that feeling as well even from close friends. Like we are not normal for being our age and not having kids yet. We have plenty of close friends that do have kids and we enjoy being around their kids but you can tell in their actions that they look at us like a different bread.

I think that happens anywhere sum12nv - couples who start having kids have a different life path from those who are not having kids, same for couples vs. singles - they are just divergent paths and make it harder to relate to one another socially - not impossible, just that your day-to-day lives, topics of conversations, things you think and worry about daily, etc., are different.

Wifey and I don't/don't plan on having kids. I don't feel we're looked at as odd for it. But maybe we got lucky. On our block, including us there are 5 couples in their late 20's to early 40's range that don't have kids.

Pretty quiet block, by the way.
