Typically the suburbs are more family friendly; however, most cities are taking steps to keep cities more family friendly or to make them family friendly.

I agree with Michael. I think major cities are getting more and more family friendly, and everyone knows the suburbs are great for families.

I say both. In the city, you are close to everything, more variety. B urbs, you have your community plus alot of commuting. If you need any help, feel free to give me a call. I am a life long native of East Dallas, which is convenient to everything, however I do sell in the suburbs as well.

Well Trulia, I doubt you have kids, but here's my answer:

Many parts of the city proper are very family friendly with nice neighborhoods and good schools, as are most of the burbs, which tend to be a little more family friendly due the greater concentration of families, and more affordability in housing. In short, if you can afford it, the city is fine, otherwise you'll have more options in the burbs.

When you have your accidental Trulia baby, name it Zillo, and call me and I'll be happy to show you both.
