You can't leaf through business weeklies without finding a list proclaiming which city or state has the best this-or-that.
So I often take such information with a grain of salt. However, I *am* quite pleased that Business Week came out with their list of "best places to raise your kids" ... mainly because, of the 52 cities studied, Gilbert Arizona came in high on the list.
I know. Everyone has an opinion of which town is best.
Very often the place of our youth ranks very high in our own list. Since I happen to have lived in Gilbert as a younger guy I think their information is top-notch. :-)
I can attest that the quality of schools, the look of the country with access to the city, and the small town friendliness is tough to beat. It's just that kind of place.
