When it comes to starting or adding to your family, there are a lot of questions that come to mind when deciding where to do it. Even though my husband and I don't have kids yet, we thought of how we want them raise and the kind of environment we want to influence them. This can sometimes be determined by the city you choose to live in.
That's where WalletHub comes in.
