Allied Van Lines, one of the world’s largest moving companies, has identified the Best Places to Raise a Family in 2023. The Dallas suburbs of Frisco and McKinney are ranked right near the top, at No. 2 and No. 4 respectively, out of the top 25 U.S. cities on the list.
To calculate the city rankings, Chicago-based Allied analyzed 10 metrics including population, cost of living, unemployment rates, median household income, violent crime rates, property crime rates, child and dependent care costs, walk and bike scores, and public-school performance scores. Cary, North Carolina, came in at No. 1 on the list.
“When families choose to relocate, there are many factors they must consider when deciding which city is best for their family,” Steve McKenna, VP and GM of Allied Van Lines, said in a statement. “This list was created to simplify that decision for these families.”
One thing that’s coming to Frisco could make families in both side-by-side cities even happier in the future. The Frisco City Council approved zoning this week for a “one-of-a-kind” kids theme park and adjacent hotel to be built by Universal Parks & Resorts.
