Survey ranks the 10 best cities to raise a family in America

Virginia Beach comes in at No. 4

An abundance of new mothers and fathers frequenting the Movoto real estate blog in recent moths was the inspiration for the recent release of the blog's latest unscientific release of the best cities to raise a family. "This [abundance] started the Movoto bloggers thinking about families and where we’d like to live when we eventually started down that long path known as parenthood," noted noted David Cross, the blog's 'chief content producer'. "Our answers were varied. Some of us wanted to stay put in the Bay Area. Others, fearing Silicon Valley’s absurd housing situation, wanted to move. But to where? That was a conundrum. We put our heads—and math skills—together to find an answer."
