Those of us that live in Woodstock know that it is a great place to live! However, when we catch an article or a blog that puts some data behind what we already know, it makes us have even more pride in our corner of the world. Just in case you missed it, we recently shared an online article that we came across titled, “Best Cities for Young Families in Georgia,” on our Facebook page.
Previously, Woodstock has made it onto other lists as well. Just last year it was identified as one of the best places to live in Georgia, one of the most affordable places in Georgia, and as one of the 50 safest cities in Georgia. Hands down, we just can’t say how much we love Woodstock!
Nerdwallet compiled their list of cities for young families based on a combination of the city’s GreatSchools rank, median home value, family income growth, median family income, and the percent of families with at least one child under the age of 18.
All in all, we’re pretty happy with how Woodstock shapes up, and we love how author Jonathon Todd sums up all of the great things about Woodstock in this description:
Woodstock is one of the bigger small cities on our list with a population of 24,774. Home values here are high, about $180,000, but family income is also higher at a median of $84,246. Woodstock’s economic roots reach back to the days of railroads, gristmills, cotton and gold mining. Like students in Holly Springs, children here attend the exceptional and large Cherokee County School District. The city’s outdoor attractions include several parks, the 12,000-acre Lake Allatoona, mountain bike trails at Blankets Creek, stock-car racing and performances at the Elm Street Cultural Arts Village. The city is in the process of developing a 60-mile network of multiuse trails and green space.
