Many American families move around for many reasons, from new job opportunities to unfortunate circumstances like foreclosure. People could either move just up the road into another neighborhood or cross state lines for their future residence. With rising inflation constantly on Americans' minds, families could consider moving somewhere else to save money in the long term.

For those looking for a new home, WalletHub released a list of the best and worst places to raise a family in America. Researchers "compared more than 180 U.S. cities based on 45 key metrics that consider essential family dynamics, such as the cost of housing, the quality of local school and health-care systems, and the opportunities for fun and recreation," according to the website.

The highest-ranking Colorado city on the list is Denver, ranking at No. 41. This popular destination got the highest marks in "Family Fun," which includes playgrounds, number of attractions, weather, commute time, walkability, and other factors.
