Personal finance website WalletHub has named the city of Dardenne Prairie as the second best place to raise a family in Missouri. Last month, WalletHub announced its rankings of 86 of Missouri’s biggest cities using 21 data points of “family-friendliness.”
Specific rankings were developed for categories such as family life and fun; education, health and safety; affordability; and socioeconomics to create the list of best places for children. Dardenne Prairie was the only St. Charles County municipality to make the top five.
Wentzville came in at No. 6 and O’Fallon followed at No. 9, rounding out the top 10. St. Peters ranked No. 14.
