No, but the # 1 pick for Virginia, Herndon, is in my county, and I would never have lived there when my kids were young.

Herndon was a rural southern town that now is part of DC's suburban sprawl. I don't know why it chosen....there's nothing special about it .

The pick city is 15 min from me in my same county, but I wouldn't toot my horn over it over sure! It's run down and there are much better towns to raise a family.

Not even close. The city they picked was planned as a retirement community.

This list doesn't seem too accurate. Solon, Ohio was about 30-45 minutes from my hometown and it wasn't to great...

I disagree with GA's choice... I think Bonaire, GA is the best place to raise kids in our state
