Real estate website Homes.com has named New Orleans the #6 Most “Family-Friendly” Major City in America. To establish this ranking, Homes.com compared the 50 largest U.S. metropolitan areas across six key dimensions: 1) School Quality, 2) Park Availability, 3) Cost of Living, 4) Safety, 5) Childcare Availability, and 6) Commute Length.
Writes Homes.com: “The top 10 in our current study is dominated by cities in the South. In fact, nine out of 10 of them can be found in this region, and a similar trend is seen in our 2017 results. These top-ranking areas generally received high marks across the six indicators we analyzed, and specifically, all of them have above average schools and low costs of living.”
