Yet again, Elk Grove landed in another top 10 list. MyLife, an online identity manager site, included the northern California city in its top 10 list of the best midsize cities to raise children.
MyLife started with 189 midsized cities using data from the U.S. Census Bureau, then chopped their list down to 10 based on five categories: Crime rate, public school ranking, public parks in the area, average family salary and cost of living.
According to the site, one reason Elk Grove made it onto their list was Elk Grove Unified School District, which is the fifth largest school district in the state of California.
In another list, conducted by NerdWallet, Elk Grove was included as one of the 10 Best Cities to own a home in California
