Why The Raleigh NC Area Attracts Young Families

Why The Raleigh NC Area Attracts Young Families

Well, no surprises here-NerdWallet has picked it's Top 10 Cities for Young Families and once again, the Raleigh area holds three spots in the Top 10.

Some of the things that they analyzed were Home Affordability with emphasis on median home values and monthly home owning costs; Prosperity and Growth, looking at the past and current income of the residents and projected long-term growth; Quality of Education, taken from GreatSchools and finally, Family Friendliness, using the percentages of families with school-age children and the poverty rate for young children. This criteria helped determine whether the area was not just affordable for families but is a healthy environment for children.

Holly Springs was chosen because education is a top priority.  This wonderful town is located within easy driving distance to Research Triangle Park. More than 50% of Holly Springs residents hold a college degree or higher which is markedly higher than the national average. Holly Springs boasts a Cultural Center, which offers a performing arts center and an outdoor stage and also has many local events for families throughout the year.

Apex "is near the pinnacle of the best cities in North Carolina because of it's affordability and excellent school system." There are plenty of things to do for young families, including the Halle Cultural Arts Center in downtown Apex as well as musical and theatrical events. Jordan Lake is nearby for water activities.

Morrisville is growing with young families by leaps and bounds because it's not only affordable but it's stellar school system scored a perfect "10" on GreatSchools. Both Lake Crabtree for recreational activities and Raleigh Durham International Airport are but minutes away.
