With 2013 well underway, there has been a lot of buzz in regards to the recent release of Bloomberg Businessweek and Bloomberg Rankings’ “Best Places to Raise a Family” in each state. According to Bloomberg Businessweek, over 3,200 places nationwide with populations from 5,000 to 50,000 were evaluated during the process – as well as housing costs, public school performance, commute time, safety, share of households with children, poverty, diversity and adults’ educational attainment. They also weighed median income and unemployment to assess the local job market.
Coming in first place for Pennsylvania’s best place to raise a family was none other than Cranberry Township! This achievement seems to be more proof that Butler County is becoming a host to the best small towns in America. For those that don’t know why Cranberry is so appealing and cream of the crop in our state: Thanks to their outstanding school system, low housing costs, presence of Westinghouse Electric’s headquarters, Alcoa and Verizon and the region’s unemployment rate to name a few. Cranberry Township offers convenient commuter access to I-76, I-79 and Route 19. In addition to Cranberry Highlands Golf Course and Cranberry Township Community Waterpark, Cranberry Commons is a popular destination holding a plethora of high-end shopping, fine dining and entertainment attractions.
