What Are the 10 Best Suburbs?

Coldwell Banker Real Estate teamed up with Onboard Infomatics to rank the top places for suburbanites, ranking more than 11,000 suburbs on amenities, proximity to good schools, commutes, and safety. 

The top suburb on its list? Cherry Hills Village, Colo., about 10 miles outside of downtown Denver. The city boasts a nearly 100 percent home-ownership rate and has less than a 20-minute average commute for residents who go downtown for work. 

The following are the top 10 suburbs making Coldwell Banker’s list:

  1. Cherry Hills Village, Colo.
  2. Clyde Hill, Wash.
  3. Haworth, N.J.
  4. Englewood Cliffs, N.J.
  5. Wolf Trap, Va.
  6. Ho-Ho-Kus, N.J.
  7. Indian Hills, Ky.
  8. East Grand Rapids, Mich.
  9. Rossmoor, Calif. 
  10. Huntington Woods, Mich.

“Suburban communities continue to appeal to people of all ages, especially as many suburbs are seeing more diversity and re-energized downtown communities,” says Budge Huskey, president and COO of Coldwell Banker Real Estate. “Residents can have it all in many of these suburbs: Great access to recreation centers, schools, and a feeling of community, while only being a short distance to the city.”
