The suburbs conjure up images of white picket fences, Little League games and a peaceful refuge from the bustling city. But with so many suburbs cropped up around big cities around the U.S., it can be difficult to determine which suburbs are the best.
We (Coldwell Banker) recently released their list of the Best Places to Live for Suburbanites, as part of its “Best Places to Live” series.
We studied trends in more than 11,000 suburbs across the U.S. and looked at a variety of factors, including access to amenities like grocery stores and banks, proximity to good schools, commuting distance and community safety.
The study revealed some interesting insights into life in the suburbs, where about 75% of people own their homes, 92% drive to work, and most people tend to eat meals at home.
We also found that the best suburb in the country is Cherry Hills Village, Colorado, where nearly 100% of the people own their own homes and the commutes to nearby Denver average about 20 minutes.
