I was just flipping through my latest issue of Parents magazine and stumbled upon the article, The 10 Best Cities for Babies. I love these articles, but I don't think anyone would ever really move just to have kids there. I think its just bragging rights. So as I look through the list there was not 1 city from California. Sad but looking through the top 100, I think we have a good amount of cities in the top 100.
Bakersfield, I am SO proud to say is on the list. #98! I love that we made the list, because I love raising my kids here. There are a lot of people who would think I was crazy for moving here from Orange County, but I love this place. Bakersfield does have so much to offer for young families. There is a long list of places for story-times, plenty of places for play dates and lots of educational opportunities. We have a great mom network, people always willing to support you through parenting. Life here is a little slower and more family centered.
Check out the top 10 here and the top 100 here! How does your city stack up?
