Honolulu rated the best city for child-free living

By Erika Engle

LAST UPDATED: 11:55 a.m. HST, Jul 15, 2014

With the highest percentage of households without children and the third-highest number of fancy restaurants per capita, Honolulu was rated the best U.S. city for child-free living, according to mylife.com.

The online identity management website rated the 100 most-populous U.S. cities to derive its rankings, rating Honolulu at the top.

The criteria for the rankings included the fewest babies born in each city's metro area based on the percentage of the population, performing arts theaters per capita, and bars per capita.

Rounding out the top five cities were San Francisco, Boston, Pittsburgh and Seattle.

Honolulu would be in the top five, based on our popularity as a homeless destination.

Honolulu number one city in the US for homeless to live. Great weather, free meals, clean water, ocean view living spaces, fresh air and soon millions provided by tax payers. What a state.

Honolulu is a business oriented city! The families live outside of Honolulu in the rural parts of the island. Who wants to raise kids in condos. This article has no worth whatsoever. Making people think that Hawaii is not a good place to raise a family. They should have a pole about the average # of children Hawaiian families have and where they live in the islands!!!!!

Actually with all the new kakaako development, families can't afford to live in the area, either that or they will have to live in small 2 bedroom units with their kids. They also didn't mention the number of ohana familes living in small units in Honolulu, bet we probably have one of the higher densities of ohana families in the US living in one area.

Friends have told me that they were leaving the state with their children because they can offer them so much more in a state with a lower cost of living. Sorry to see them go. I'm single. I love my home here.

Better do the math again. Seems like most places we go I see families with not one but 4 or 5 screaming kids. I agree with everyone above me.
