Top 10 best place to raise a family by Kiplinger
The Community - Richland, WA
The Tri-Cities area is a mid-sized metropolitan area in the
southeastern part of the U.S. state of Washington, consisting of
three neighboring cities: Kennewick, Pasco, and Richland. The
cities are located at the confluence of the Yakima, Snake, and
Columbia rivers in the semi-arid region of Southeastern Washington.
A fourth neighboring city, West Richland, is generally included as
part of the Tri-City area and region, as are a handful of
unincorporated communities. Each city either borders another or one
of the area's rivers, making the Tri-Cities seem like one
uninterrupted mid-sized city. The Tri-Cities Airport located in
Pasco provides the region with commercial and private air service.
Pasco is the seat of Franklin County, while the other cities are
located in Benton County. The two counties are officially defined
as the Kennewick-Pasco-Richland Metropolitan Statistical Area.
In 2010, Kiplinger rated the Tri-Cities among the Top 10 best
places to raise a family, and CNN/Money ranked the Tri-Cities one
of the top 10 best bets for gains in housing value, due to its
relatively stable economic conditions since the early 2000s.
