Sacramento Tops List of Best Places to Raise a Family

A new study is out naming California's 20 best cities to raise kids, and Sacramento is at the top.

As far as families are concerned, Sacramento is a destination location.

"There's a number of very unique events that were born here in Sacramento and that cater to families and kids, and those are always very popular, especially among families looking for fun things to do in the summer," Mike Testa, senior vice president for the Sacramento Convention and Visitors Bureau said. 

Sacramento taking the top spot doesn't come as a surprise to Testa. He says the city on the river caters to families.

"And you see that by way of libraries, by way of youth programs and different things throughout the region," Testa said. 

The study, published by Estately, also puts Sacramento at fourth for most preschools, day cares and libraries per capita, and the fifth lowest for cost of living.
