Blauvelt

It's safe and has great parks and playgrounds!
 

Garnerville

It has great outdoors activities all year round for families with kids!! You can go to wonderful parks to bike in the spring, do water sports in the summer, visit great hiking trails in the fall and skiing, tubing and ice skating in the winter in the near by ski resorts.
 

New City

I love being a parent in New City because we have incredible schools.


I grew up in my hometown and loved it and now it is so great raising my children in the same town and same elementary school that I went to. We have a very involved community which offers many great programs and activities for adults and children. I try my best to be a part of all that I can.


I love my hometown because there is so much right outside my door without being too crowded.  It's a great place to raise a family, the school district is great and the town programs are plentiful.  I love being able to raise my children i the same town where I grew up.




If the going gets tough, the playgrounds are our peace.
 

Orangeburg

It's extremely friendly, inviting, historical and a great place to raise children.
 

Suffern

Because Rockland County is beautiful, clean, and uncongested.


I love being a parent in Rockland County, NY, because first and foremost family is near! The second most reason is because you are a close drive away from at least four different states! There's so much diversity culture on every corner! We recently relocated from Florida this past September. Though we loved it, you could spend 8 hours in the car and still be in the state of Florida! LOL! Rockland County is full of small time charm with big city living right next door with beautiful seasons to look forward to!
