Morton One of 10 Best Towns for Families!

Wednesday, July 3, 2013

The Morton Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development Council are excited to announce that Family Circle, a monthly lifestyle magazine based out of New York, named Morton one of America’s 10 Best Towns for Families.

Every year, Family Circle assembles a list of 3,335 cities and towns with populations between 10,000 and 150,000. From that, nearly 1,000 cities with a high concentration of households with median incomes between $55,000 and $100,000 are selected.

Family Circle then assesses which places best meet its family-friendly criteria, including affordable homes, quality schools, access to health care, green space, low crime rate and financial stability.

The 10 Best Towns for Families is featured in the August 2013 issue, which will be on newsstands July 2 and is already online at www.FamilyCircle.com/besttowns.

Here is Family Circle’s 10 Best Towns for Families (in alphabetical order):
