Miami Beach Ranked Sixth-Most Livable City in the U.S./ August 1, 2014
With its year-round warmth, pristine beaches, vibrant nightlife, and rich cultural scene, Miami Beach is undoubtedly one of the world’s most popular travel destinations. It is perhaps little surprise that a city that draws in over 15 million visitors annually would end up among the top ten most livable in the entire country.
That’s the conclusion of recent study by Livability.com, which drew its data from a survey of residents conducted by a market research firm. Participants were asked what they value most about their community, what amenities they prefer, and what they would look for in another city. Eight major factors were measured – the local economy, the quality and availability of housing, amenities, infrastructure, demographics, social and civic capital, education, and health care.
Based on these factors, Miami Beach is the sixth best place to live in the country – the only city in Florida to make the top ten and one of only five on the east coast to be in the top 20. Needless to say, that is quite an achievement.
Livability.com provided more details on Miami Beach’s strengths:
Miami Beach, located on a barrier island across Biscayne Bay from downtown Miami, has a multicultural community and an abundance of shopping, dining and nightlife opportunities. With more than seven miles of oceanfront sand and warm climate, outdoor activities keep people active and entertained. Festivals take place nearly every week, and Miami’s professional sports teams are a short drive away. In 2011, Miami Beach was given the Outstanding Achievement City Livability Award by The U.S. Conference of Mayors.
No wonder the city continues to draw so many visitors and would-be residents from all over the world. Miami Beach’s popularity has driven the demand for local real estate, especially among luxury condos and homes.
