How great is it to live in Tampa? Word is spreading.

The U.S. News & World Report looked at 150 metro areas to find out where the best places to live around the country. Tampa earned a spot on the list of the Top 50.

Tampa was identified as the 39th best city to live in our country. So what makes a city desirable? Everything from value to job market to quality of life.

The study collected data from the U.S. Census Bureau, the FBI, the U.S. Department of Labor and U.S. News’ own internal resources.

The five specific indexes are job market index, value index, quality of index, desirablity index, and net migration.

If you live in or near Tampa, you already know that in Tampa you can enjoy a laid-back, beachy lifestyle but still have access to big city amenities, like all of our great sports teams.
