I don't know if you saw this, but Kiplinger listed the 10 best cities to raise kids. They named Richland (and the entire Tri-Cities Metro area) as No. 2 in the entire country!

No. 1 was Omaha and Corona, California and East Grand Rapids, Michigan also made the list.

Richland scored so high for its high number of public parks and high amount of money spent on education.

I've got to admit, Richland does have that going for it. Tri-Cities has GREAT parks and Richland seems to have one around every corner.
