Best Places In Washington To Raise A Family

WalletHub, whose website helps with all things credit and personal financial choices, has recently put together a list of the Best Places to Raise a Family in Washington. The Eastside is strongly represented in the Top 10 and looks to rank pretty high overall!

According to their report, “Washingtonians earn the 12th highest per-capita personal income in the U.S. and experienced the fourth highest growth in income between 2015 and 2016. As a bonus, they don’t have to pay state individual income tax. Those who aspire to work for some of America’s biggest and most admired employers will also be pleased to know that Amazon, Costco, Microsoft and Starbucks are all headquartered here, where strong employment growth is expected for the next two years.”

Sammamish came in at No. 2 followed by Snoqualmie at No. 3. Rounding out the Top 15 were other Eastside cities like Klahanie, Woodinville, Redmond, Newcastle, Issaquah, and Kirkland, respectively.
