Newcastle is one of the 10 best cities in the state to raise children, according to an article on the website NerdWallet.

The city comes in at No. 8, behind cities such as Issaquah, Redmond and Woodinville.

The towns were ranked based on the quality of schools, home affordability and the city’s growth.

The article praised Newcastle’s proximity to Bellevue and Seattle and lauded the view of the nearby Olympic mountain range that can be seen from the city.

“Through the work of volunteers, Newcastle has an elaborate trail system and 12 gorgeous parks,” the article said. “The town is also well known for its stunning golf course at The Golf Club at Newcastle.”

The other top cities were Maple Valley, Woodinville, Issaquah, Tumwater, Bainbridge Island, Lake Forest Park, Redmond, Mukilteo and Lynden.

More than 110 cities in the state were included in the analysis.
