Best Places to Move with the Kids

Best Places to Move with the Kids

While you may not make your decision to move to a particular location based on a list on this blog or in a magazine, you may find the information useful when beginning your research.  Because there are so many different places that you could move, you may find that the list is a good starting point to narrow down your choices.

So, if you have kids and want to move, where should you go?  It really depends on what your needs are – and what you want for your kids.  Most lists, including this one, take into account healthcare, education, cost of living, activities, and the potential to lead a healthy life.

Remember, none of these states are necessarily any better than the other – it all depends on you.  But, it seems that across the board and in many different studies, these states keep popping up on the best places to move with your kids:

  • Kansas
  • Kentucky
  • Rhode Island
  • New Hampshire
  • Hawaii
  • Ohio
  • Massachusetts
  • Maine
  • Vermont
  • Iowa

These states tend to have the best opportunities for kids, especially in healthcare and education.  So, if you are thinking of moving but don’t have a particular destination in mind, why not consider these states first?

Oh, and if you’re wondering what states tend to rank near the bottom of the list, we’ve got those, too:

  • New Jersey
  • New Mexico
  • Oregon
  • Alaska
  • Nevada
  • Arkansas
  • Texas
  • Arizona
  • Mississippi
  • Louisiana
  • Florida
