We love lists (it’s in our name after all) and the writers over at Movoto.com seem to like list as much as us.  Recently they made a list of the ‘Top 10 Best Places To Live In Florida.’  We’ve embedded the list below.  The list is dominated by beachside towns of southern Florida. Sadly, only one Central Florida community made the list. Winter Park came in #3 on the list.  How places like Celebration, Mount Dora or Winter Springs didn’t make the list is beyond us.

The list is built using seven criteria;

  • Total amenities
  • Quality of life (cost of living, median home price, median rent, median household income, and student-to-teacher ratio)
  • Total crimes
  • Tax rates (sales tax and income tax)
  • Unemployment
  • Commute time
  • Weather (temperature and air quality)
