Good news if you’re living at the luxury apartments in Downtown San Francisco — The Bay Area has made the cut as one of the best places to raise a family. Specifically, according to Mercury News, a number of Bay Area suburbs are topping Niche’s 2019 list of Best Suburbs to Raise a Family in California, with ten Bay Area locales making it into the top twelve spots on the rankings. Which areas are these, you might wonder, and how exactly did Niche arrive at their rankings? We’ll be looking at both questions today, as we delve into their findings and what that means for parents trying to raise a family in the Bay Area.

The Best Places Throughout The Bay

So, the first thing to sort out is how Niche derived their rankings for all these California locations. To determine how these communities stacked up in terms of family friendliness, they carefully considered factors that would be important to raising a family, such as “the quality of schools, safety, affordability and access to family amenities, parks, and libraries.”

After tallying up their data, they found a clear winner: Menlo Park. Situated between Palo Alto and Redwood City, this Bay Area suburb is a haven for great schools, high walkability, and plentiful options to get fit and stay healthy. It received an overall grade of A+, not only for its family friendliness, but for its overall way of life. And so it continues when you look at other cities on the list, which are dominated by the Bay Area. The top 15, in case you were interested, consist of:

  • Menlo Park
  • Loyola
  • Los Altos Hills
  • Monte Soreno
  • Albany
  • Palo Alto
  • Moraga
  • Mountain View
  • Manhattan Beach
  • Saranap
  • Piedmont
  • La Canada Flintridge
  • Los Altos
  • San Ramon
  • San Anselmo

So, what does this mean for city residents in the area? While the city proper might present certain challenges for raising a family, it does serve as a great place to get started, after which, you’ve got your pick of suburbs all around you to settle down further and raise a family. These suburbs don’t just provide one aspect of life that caters to families either, their robust services and calm environments ensure you’ll have everything you need to make you and yours happy for years to come.
