Spokane Wa named top 10 for families by Parenting Magazine!
Having raised five amazing children here in Spokane Wa. I can't say I am suprised that Parenting Magazine has named Spokane Wa in the top ten places for families!
"Parenting Magazine has named Spokane Wa one of the top 10 American hometowns in its 'Best Cities for Families' article.
It's an award based on mom's top criteria for keeping their families happy, healthy and safe.
The magazine says Spokane was recognized for its fair weather, three Blue Ribbon schools, 4,100 acres of parks, playgrounds, and pools, and two children's hospitals.
Spokane also ranked in the top 10 in two additional categories, 'best education' and 'best health'.
Before evaluating the cities, Parenting conducted a nationwide survey of moms through its MomConnection research panel to establish the primary factors they consider when choosing a home.
Their choices were (in order of priority): quality of schools; affordability and availability of quality housing; low crime rates; job availability and growth; number of registered sex offenders; recreational opportunities; quality/quantity of pediatricians/family physicians; commute time and distance; proximity to a good children's hospital; quality/quantity of childcare facilities and preschools; and air quality."

Wow, once again, I am more than proud to call Spokane Wa. my home!
