Wallethub's annual study of the best places to raise a family has been released. If you're considering a move and want to go somewhere that's best for your family, think about one of these cities! None in the top 10 are in Minnesota but one is right next door in Wisconsin.

The rankings are based on 42 key factors determined by Wallethub and they looked at the 182 largest cities in the country. Some of the key factors include family fun, affordability, and education/child care.

Before we get into the 10 best places to raise a family, let's go over the 10 worst places to live, which, surprisingly, includes a Midwest city!

182. Detroit, MI
181. Cleveland, OH

178. San Bernardino, CA
177. Newark, NJ

174. Jackson, MS

I was a little surprised to see Detroit ranked as the worst city for families.
