Most desirable for young families in Ga.? PTC and F’ville

Fayetteville and Peachtree City have found themselves in some pretty good company. Out of Georgia’s 96 cities with populations of more than 10,000, the two municipalities in Fayette County have been listed by the NerdWallet.com website as being in the top 10 most desirable cities in the state for young families.

Peachtree City was listed as the number 2 city based on the county’s education system and the perfect score listed by GreatSchools.com and as having nearly 100 miles of golf cart paths that accommodate alternative transportation. Access to college campuses also figured into the ranking.

Fayetteville was ranked number 10 by the website. That ranking was also based on high-performing schools, along with historic structures such as the old courthouse and the annual fine art show in the spring.

The top 10 best places for young families, ranked in order, include Evans, Peachtree City, Sugar Hill, Perry, St. Simons, Suwanee, Alpharetta, Martinez, Buford and Fayetteville.

Factors used in scoring included the GreatSchool rating, median home values, monthly homeowner costs, median household income and the income change between 1999-2011, according to NerdWallet.com.

which is considered 'main media' did list Peachtree City! Many are realizing that Fayetteville is also desirable and growing with young families. (New housing, which was dormant for so long, is picking up!) Good news!

Why no comments on GOOD news?!

SERIOUSLY! Why don't any of the regulars to this site comment on the POSITIVE thigns? If it's not about Fayette County going to hell, then some of you have NOTHING to live for!

GET OVER YOURSELVES! Fayette County remains a tremendous place to live, work and raise a family -- CITIZEN.COM BE DAMNED!

FC is a great place to raise kids. That's why I am here.

The compliment is nice, don't get me wrong, but its coming from NerdWallet.com not mainstream media.

We will take the compliment graciously and leave it at that.

Also most desirable for crotchety Internet forum posters

We should also make a strong showing when NerdWallet studies the best locales for crotchety old internet posters who are bitter and disillusioned with life in their golden years.
