Now we all know that the Minneapolis and St. Paul Areas have their great spots, their good spots and not so good spots.

But apparently Wallet Hub, thinks there is enough good to warrant naming Minneapolis #6 and St. Paul #14 on their Best Places to Raise a Family List.  They ranked the towns on family fun, health and safety, education and child care, affordability and socio-economics.

Numbers one through five on the list were:

  1. Overland Park, Kansas
  2. Madison, WI.
  3. Plano, TX.
  4. Seattle, WA
  5. Fremont, CA.

The bottom 5 or worst towns were:

  • 146 Hialeah, FL
  • 147 Shreveport, LA
  • 148 San Bernardino, CA
  • 149 Detroit, MI
  • 150 Birmingham, AL

No other Minnesota cities were on the list. But even with the problems happening in the cities, it makes you feel good when they are ranked for a good thing.
