Niche User: Living in Midland has been amazing. I went to elementary through high school in Midland and the school system there is unbeatable, the level of learning is very high and it prepared me for college. Also living in Midland you have so much to do, our biggest tourist attraction is the fridge which is on the Tittabawase river. The bridge connects the skate park and playground with downtown midland which is full of local businesses including my brothers clothing shop. If I had to do it over again I would go back to Midland every time. Its a great city to raise a family.

Current Resident: Pretty much Fort Mill, SC. Close to Tega Cay. No one calls it Riverview. The Schools are great, low crime, but no night life, no food delivery services except pizza. I have no idea why. Hardly any shopping available. Rock Hill or Charlotte, NC provide closest shopping.

- Town in New Mexico
- Rating 3.68 out of 5 19 reviews
Niche User: I came here 20 years ago, thinking we'd be here about 3 years, but it's been a great place to raise a family, and now we've moved our retired parents and other family members into the community! The altitude can be tough for those coming from sea level, but other than that it's a fantastic place. Concerts every Friday night (free) at local parks, parades, art events, a craft brewing cooperative, great neighbors, trails, skiing, it's a super area and it's welcoming and visually appealing. It helps that it has a great climate and good schools, too.

Current Resident: a great, quiet small town; advantageously located 40 minutes from New Orleans and 20 minutes from Baton Rouge. 5 minutes from the small city of Gonzales for shopping and restaurants. Ascension Parish schools are terrific. Near the interstate, so travel is easy as well.

Current Resident: I like living in a small cultured tourist town such as Le Claire. There are things to do and local shops to see. I live in an area that has MidAmerican Energy which I enjoy having. There is also a consumer choice in Internet services which is nice. The amount of local business diversity is amazing!

Current Resident: Madison is a jewel in North Alabama! Small town feel with lots of small independently owned restaurants , yet many chain restaurants and more coming in regularly. Small business owners compete well with big box stores here. Great place for raising a family or independent living. Plenty of very nice apartment complexes as well as new homes being built all aroundMadison. You can own acres or just take care of a small plot of land. Choices are many! Food is great and breweries are just as unique. The location of Madison is awesome! One hour from Nashville and right next door to Huntsville, home of the Space and Rocket Center. There are no shortages of jobs here. Part-time work or full-time employment for everyone. There is a wonderful mix of cultures here as well as age groups and Madison caters to us all! You will enjoy four seasons here. A very light winter and if it gets to hot in the summer, you are only a few hours from the Coast. Spend a weekend. Then you will want to move here!

- Suburb of Pittsburgh, PA
- Rating 4.32 out of 5 31 reviews
Current Resident: Gibsonia is a very pleasant area with kind inhabitants. The winding roads will get you from one activity to another, with plenty of stops on the side for local restaurants and bars to fill your needs. Gibsonia has a higher-age demographic, roughly 55-60 years on average. Though there is not a lot to do in terms of youth-aged activities, you can always travel the extra 15 minutes or so to arcades, bowling alleys, mini-golf spots, and theaters that are nearby. The school district is decent and staying as current as they can in terms of educational technology.

#10 Best Suburbs to Buy a House in America
- Town in New Mexico
- Rating 3.71 out of 5 21 reviews
Current Resident: Los Alamos is a great town for outdoor enthusiasts. Miles and miles of trails, great camping sites all over, rock climbing, skiing, rafting...The longest commute to work is 15 minutes. The town is very safe, and the schools are good. Schools used to be 10/10, but in the past few years, they went down to 7/10. My oldest child is much older than my youngest, and helping at schools with both of them, I can see the difference :(
The downside of Los Alamos, is that many local residents have a mentality of living here temporary, and do not invest much in local businesses, they shop "off the hill". For the town with a median household income twice the national average, Los Alamos invests very little in itself. Poor entertainment and shopping as a result.
The housing also looks a little depressing. The majority of the houses were built in the early era of Los Alamos, and only a few are remodeled. These old houses create a certain look, which may take some time to get used to.

- Suburb of South Bend, IN
- Rating 3.72 out of 5 146 reviews
Current Resident: This is a bedroom community for the upper middle class in the South Bend area. Low crime, excellent schools. Drive outside Granger for shopping and work. Developments keep the poor people out and property values high by not allowing renting of property. Many people bring their kids to my development to trick-or-treat because they see it as safer than their own neighborhoods. I see that as a compliment and welcome them!

Current Resident: We love Chesterbrook!
We recently relocated from CA for a work assignment and found Chesterbrook to be everything we could hope for.
Quiet, safe, friendly, well kept neighborhoods with excellent schools. Lots of parks and nice walking trails within the entire community. Nearby access to all major bike trails as well. Great location with easy access to all major areas. Strong real estate investment value for home owners and renters.

#14 Best Suburbs to Buy a House in America
- Suburb of Indianapolis, IN
- Rating 4.11 out of 5 383 reviews
Current Resident: I’ve lived in Fishers my whole life. It’s a very neat little community and I love it with all my heart. The people are very friendly and there are a lot of job opportunities in the restaurant and business industries. Construction and improvements are being made often to make Fishers a better community in which to live and work. The downtown area is a short walk away from most neighborhoods, and it’s only a short drive to Indianapolis. I would really recommend it to anyone looking for a place to crash for the weekend or to live in after retirement. It’s just a really great community!

#15 Best Suburbs to Buy a House in America
- Suburb of Jackson, MS
- Rating 4.27 out of 5 85 reviews
Former Resident: I’ve grew up in Madison, and still have family here that I visit quite often. While there may be a lot of people who trash Mississippi for being a bit subpar in certain areas, most of them haven’t spent any considerable amount of time here. The schools here are some of the best in the state, and are very good on a national level. While Madison itself isn’t very diverse, many of the surrounding areas are. The crime rate is very low, especially compared to Jackson, and you really get the feeling of a good old small southern town. While the housing market around here may be a bit more expensive than the rest of the state, I would think that would be expected. I would certainly say that you should not look over Madison just because the state gets criticized so harshly.

Current Resident: Ballwin has been the town where my childhood has taken place. I wasn’t always here between my mom living in Wentzville, Potosi, and Chesterfield, but my dad has always been here. Along with years of childhood memories and great places to visit, Ballwin is always a place that has made me feel safe. All my friends, neighbors, classmates and teachers always are supportive and care about each other and it is an amazing thing to experience. I know for a fact that not all towns are as welcoming as Ballwin is and I am thankful to live where I am.

Current Resident: McMurray has a hometown feel that I'll miss even when I leave for college. I've lived here my whole life and I've grown to appreciate the public library, the many thrift stores, and the Montour Bike Trail that have been around for as long as I can remember. It's a great place to live because everything is within a short drive and jobs are up for grabs due to the labor shortage everywhere.

#20 Best Suburbs to Buy a House in America
- Town in Indiana
- Rating 4.3 out of 5 277 reviews
Current Resident: We moved to Carmel from the northeast, and at the time I was wary of moving to Indiana - a state I knew nothing about other than farms. Boy, was I wrong. Carmel is beautiful- sophisticated, charming, kind, innovative and stocked with families all working to create a beautiful life for their kids and themselves. Infrastructure is top notch and well-planned, the homes and neighborhoods are gorgeous and affordable, the area is filled with good, high-paying jobs, the public school facilities are amazing, and quality of teaching and programs offered - both public and community programs- are outstanding. Like another poster said, come visit- you will be amazed! I’ve met so many transplants, and some who moved just after seeing Carmel during a visit with friends. I can’t imagine another city offering the quality of life we have in Carmel, we are so grateful to live here. This city is the poster child of forward-thinking leadership as well as listening to what it’s residents want.

- Suburb of St. Louis, MO
- Rating 4.75 out of 5 8 reviews
Current Resident: Glendale is a small, family-friendly community that is a part of Webster and (majority) Kirkwood schools. Many of the small older homes are getting knocked down to build huge $700k+ four bedroom, three bath homes on these small lots. The community is great, especially if you have kids, but everyone who lives on my street looks the same as me, yet the schools try to push diversity by bussing in kids from the city, while in the long run Kirkwood really should be pushing and helping black and brown families move to the area.

Current Resident: It is your typical suburban neighborhood. It is very safe with crime being few and far between, the local system is one of the best in the state, and shopping is only a couple minutes away. If you don't have a car you will find it impossible to move around as public transit is nonexistent.
