Fort Worth And Dallas Named Among Top 10 Cities To Be A Kid

"If kids ruled the world, parents wouldn’t head to the coasts for jobs, but instead move to cities full of parks, big yards and other playmates."

A recent study by Zillow analyzed the top 100 cities in America, focusing on factors kids would prioritize in making a decision where to live -  places where neighborhood friends are easy to find, parks and theme parks are nearby, and there are plenty of houses with playrooms, treehouses and large yards.

“Must-haves for families with kids are a lot different than those without,” said Zillow Chief Marketing Officer Jeremy Wacksman. “In addition to a convenient commute, families with kids also want an awesome backyard. Forget the gourmet kitchen — kids want a decked-out finished basement, dedicated playroom or custom treehouse. On this list of kid-friendly communities, currently ‘hot,’ amenity-rich, dense cities like San Francisco and Seattle take a back seat to communities in wide-open places like Texas and the Midwest that offer plenty of room for children to grow.”.

The Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex in North Texas ranked very well in the study:    Fort Worth earned the #3 spot, with Dallas ranking 10th.    Corpus Christi topped the list, and San Antonio was 4th, representing a Texas blowout vs. other states in kid friendliness.

Here are the complete results of the top 10:
