Best for Families

Post Date:11/19/2018 4:30 PM

In a recent study, WalletHub.com, a personal finance outlet, ranked the City of Weston as 2018's 10th Best City for Florida Families.  Another great recognition for Weston and city leaders are thrilled to say the least. 

In order to help existing and prospective Florida families find the best cities in their state for putting down roots, WalletHub compared more than 180 cities across 21 key metrics. Those metrics range from housing affordability to school-system quality to general affordability.  Here is how Weston fared and why our City ranks in the top 10 in the entire state of Florida as THE place for families.
