Forbes Advisor said it came up with the rankings, "by pulling recent data on key lifestyle factors such as the area's median home price, personal income per capita, and the unemployment and crime rate." While Jacksonville holds the honor of being Florida's largest city by population, its combined metro area population is smaller than Miami and Tampa. You can enjoy big city conveniences and live on the Atlantic Ocean"yet the living costs are relatively affordable. "Banking, healthcare and transportation are the seven-county metro area's biggest employment opportunities. The city is also home to one of the nation's three Mayo Clinics and offers access to many of Florida's best banks."

I have relatives and friends who live in Florida.

The one thing that they all seem to have in common is their almost non-stop promotion of the utopia that that try to sell Florida as being. It is a constant part of conversations I have with them.

Is there something in the Florida water?

Jacksonville's violent crime rate is nearly double that of Florida's statewide rate, and approaching double that of the national median violent crime rate per 1000 residents.

Violent crimes per 1000:



National median

Property crime rate per 1000:

So what? Look at any Big City in America and I bet it has a higher crime rate than the rest of the state. Los Angeles's crime rate is 2 times higher than the national average and is on par with cities like Dallas, Phoenix and Atlanta.

I don't like Florida, but you're an idiot for posting statistically stupid stuff like this.

Personally, I'd rather be in Scottsdale.
