“Kirkland is easy on the eyes, to put it mildly,” Money said. “Sitting on the edge of sparkling Lake Washington, residents enjoy views of both Mount Rainier and the Seattle skyline. But it’s not just looks that give locals bragging rights. They describe the Seattle suburb as a family-friendly, community-focused town with great schools and employment opportunities.”
Atlanta ranked No. 1, followed by Tempe, Arizona; Kirkland; Raleigh, N.C.; and the Rogers Park neighborhood in Chicago.
