I’ve never thought of Bon Air as a city to be honest.
Originally developed as a resort community for 19th century residents of nearby Richmond, Bon Air still sports much of the beautiful Victorian architecture of the time. History aside, the median home value of $217,900 is the lowest in the top 10, and the town earned a GreatSchools score of 9, which is tied for the highest mark in the state. Even though only 20% of households are families with children, the blend of affordability and excellent schools likely will help that number increase.

However the list of Best Cities for Young Families in Virginia is based on data from trusted sources such a the census. The factors used to determine “best” included, home affordability, growth and prosperity, family friendliness, and educational quality.
