Three Greater Cincinnati cities have been named among the top 10 best towns in Ohio for young families, according to the consumer website nerdwallet.com.
Loveland ranked No. 2 on the list with Mason coming in at No. 4. Springboro was ranked No. 7.
The website analyzed 184 Ohio cities and towns with populations of 10,000 or higher in the rankings. Each city was scored based on the quality of the local public school system, cost of living, median home value and income and whether the town is growing.
According to the website:
Loveland is a suburb of Cincinnati. It sits on the Little Miami River, along which extends a 70-mile trail where residents can bike. The local school district, Loveland City Schools, has been rated “excellent” by the State Department of Education for 12 consecutive years.
Mason is located 22 miles from downtown Cincinnati. Earlier this year, it ranked seventh on Money Magazine’s list of best places to live, thanks in part to its diversified economy. Big employers in town include Procter & Gamble and Mitsubishi.
Springboro is a suburb of Cincinnati and Dayton, and two years ago it was named one of the best places to live in the United States by CNNMoney. The community includes four public parks, throws an annual Christmas festival and holds summer concerts in the park. Last decade, the community grew significantly, too, by over 40 percent.
Broadview Heights near Cleveland placed first on the list. Other Ohio towns in the top 10 include Upper Arlington, Rocky River, Avon Lake, Solon, Bexley and Brecksville.
