Wildwood Ranked as 
 One of the Best Small Cities for Families

According to the personal finance website NerdWallet, Wildwood, Missouri ranks #10 as best for families among all small cities located next to large cities across the United States. Using recent data from the U.S. Census Bureau and published journals on schools and neighborhoods, NerdWallet analyzed 245 places with populations from 25,000 to 100,000. Based on home value and affordability, median annual income, growth, school quality and crime, Wildwood was the only Missouri city to make the ranking.

NerdWallet Analysts Emily Starbuck Crone and Sreeker Jasthi suggest that families who live in the top 10 cities will find the convenience of higher-paying jobs and amenities without long commutes. Other cities making the top 10 include Wylie, Texas, Spring Hill, Tennessee, Leander, Texas, Bentonville, Arkansas, Carmel, Indiana, Pearland, Texas, League City, Texas, Allen Texas and Little Elm, Texas. "We do all we can to make Wildwood the preferred choice for families, and we're pleased to receive this recognition," said Mayor Jim Bowlin.
