I know I’m woefully behind on posting this, but I checked – to be sure – and the ranking is still there.
In 2011, Business Week named Blacksburg the “Best Place in the U.S. to Raise Kids.” Home to Virginia Tech, Moog Inc. and the National Weather Service, Blacksburg has a great educational base as well as plenty of economic opportunities. The city is known for its affordable living costs, low crime rates and exceptional schools. Blacksburg is brimming with family-friendly amenities and features a community center with an indoor pool and a nine-hole municipal golf course.
I realize these rankings are perhaps a dime a dozen, but the recognition is still good – and Blacksburg VA really is a good place to raise a family. Besides, it was announced on my birthday, September 26th … that has to mean that it’s incredibly accurate, right?
