Current Resident: Fishers, IN is a safe and growing suburb of Indianapolis. Job and housing growth has been steady for more than 15 years! It is extremely affordable to live in Fishers even though it has some of the strongest k-12 schools in the state and is considered a high end place to live. There is also a wide range of housing options from apartments to mansions. There is a place for everyone in this low-crime community.

- Town in Indiana
Current Resident: Carmel is probably one of the best places in America you could hope to raise a family and have a good childhood in, it has got some of the best ranked school systems in the nation and the community is beyond friendly. I love that its not too big that it's overwhelming, but at the same time not small enough that someone could call it uninteresting!

- Town in New Mexico
Former Resident: Los Alamos is in a remote but idyllic ponderosa pine setting atop 5 mesas (7,500 ft elevation) overlooking the Rio Grande valley. It is a town of cultural diversity being the home to scientists from all over the world, yet encircled by Native American land. It is a wonderful place for raising a family...safe environment...good school system...lots of free activities designed for young families. There are many trails to hike, parks to explore, playgrounds to enjoy, museums and nature center activities to enlighten. There is a golf course, an aquacenter and ski slopes at hand. If you like to perform musically or theatrically there are various organizations which provide plenty of opportunities. There is an arts center with a shop to display ones creations. There is a large public library that is well supported by its highly educated community members. We lived in Los Alamos for 12 years...it was a privilege to have been able to do so.

- Town in New Mexico
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.

#9 Best Suburbs to Buy a House in America
- Town in Indiana
Current Resident: In Huntertown there is always an air of community and togetherness. I have lived all over Indiana, and I would say that that Huntertown has the best atmosphere and quality about it. For example, the churches are very welcoming and accepting of all people and are very open-minded about most ideas.
However I would like to see more availability of work and volunteer organizations in Huntertown. If someone lives further into Huntertown then they have to travel to Fort Wayne to find this availability. I would like to see it be in our own town as well.

Current Resident: Excellent. The down town is beautiful. Lots of fun shops and restaurants. Baseball fields and a rec center are open to the public. Has some parks and a skate park. However, there needs to be more sidewalks in the city so children and families can be safe while riding their bikes or walking around the neighborhood.

Current Resident: Overall, my experience in Madison is very good. I lived in Madison for 12+ years and this town grew tremendously. Career-wise, this town is popularly known for engineering, computing, logistics field, medical job opportunities. The public schools have a great and advanced education system. Also, it's very safe, diverse, and friendly based on my experience. There are so many restaurants, buildings, nature trails, etc that are provided in this town. It's safe and friendly. If you need to take your kids out somewhere then there is a TopGolf, skating rinks, trampoline park, etc.

- Suburb of Indianapolis, IN
Current Resident: I like living in McCordsville. It is very quiet and the people in my neighborhood are friendly. They have an excellent school system that my son attends that is the only Stem school district in the state. Recently the Meijer’s store opened in McCordsville which has been a big help for groceries since Marsh and Needlers closed. Since McCordsville is up and coming I would like to see more restaurants in the area however there are some in the nearby towns of Fishers, Noblesville, and Carmel. The crime rate is low and I stay notify of current activities happening in surrounding housing developments through the Next Door app.

#15 Best Suburbs to Buy a House in America
- Suburb of New York City, NY
Current Resident: Chappaqua is a tight-knit community where people care about their neighbors. The greatest testament to this is that a large number of people raised here move back to raise their own families. Fundraiser for those in need is sell out of seats. The majority of teachers at every level are passionate and genuinely thrilled to work with such motivated students. Kids stay in touch after high school, recall their childhood fondly and come back for alumni events and sporting events.

#17 Best Suburbs to Buy a House in America
- Suburb of Louisville, KY
Current Resident: Great schools. Close to cities and culture, but removed enough to keep the small town vibe.
Neighborhoods are peaceful and friendly...although avoid Celebration Park as they can get a bit carried away (if you park wrong, they will complain. Sneeze and everyone knows. And don’t dare have a party unless they are all invited! Too much HOA power for the busybodies).
But a terrific little town for families and amazing schools!

#20 Best Suburbs to Buy a House in America
- Suburb of Cincinnati, OH
Niche User: Where I lived, the people were really kind and generous and so very welcoming when my family moved in. The school district was rated excellent every year by the state and I didn't see it changing any time soon. My high school, Turpin High School, won the silver award for being one of the highest ranked schools in the nation. Children definitely receive a high quality of education in a safe and inviting environment. There was also very many choices for entertainment and fun things to do. My family personally loved to go to the Reds games and I loved to go to Newport and look around and visit the aquarium. There were many safe and beautiful parks and many fun school events. There were also many opportunities to give back to the community and serve others which I absolutely loved. I am very grateful that I grew up in Anderson township. I always felt safe and at home and happy. I received an excellent education that is helping me now through college. I would do it all over and move to Anderson with my family if I got the chance. The future only looks brighter.

- Town in Ohio
Current Resident: Perrysburg is a growing community with that "small town" feel. It is the most wonderful place to grow up, I know this because I grew up here, and I loved every minute of it! Everyone is friendly and there is a very strong sense of community. This town is rich with history and is desirable for people of all ages. With a beautiful, riverfront downtown and old historic homes, Perrysburg is packed with charm. On the other hand, it is rapidly expanding and adding new subdivisions perfect for young families to grow in a great community. I would recommend this town for anyone, but once you come you will never want to leave!
