That's according to a new survey by Children's Health Magazine.

It ranked Madison only behind Burlington, Vt., as the best city for families.

Milwaukee was rated 87th among 100 cities, with Detroit being the worst.

The survey is based on 30 factors important to parents, like education, crime, health, housing and the local economy.
