[MUSIC] After searching the country for perfect places to call home, Family Circle chose these communities for their stellar schools, affordable housing, and giving spirit. Brecksville, Ohio. Locals joke that this charming Cleveland suburb belongs in the Guinness Book of World Records for having the most people who grow up here go away to college and return to raise a family. Maybe that's because of the town's ample green space, which includes a 3,000 acres nature reserve and the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, as well as top rated schools. It's a sure sign of spring when Brecksville Middle schoolers hold fundraisers for pediatric cancer research, including car washes, bracelet sales and a dump tank where kids get to soak their teachers.
