4 of the towns are in SW FL. This follows picks by Money Mag's #2 pick of Cape Coral of of all US, AARP's Naples & Sarasota pick and many other sources within the last 9 months. The Sarasota to Naples area is among the best places in the US to retire according to a wide range of diverse sources. Florida is still absent from general best places to live lists due to the unemployment rate being among the highest in the US.

Great news. But Florida's unemployment rate is dropping, we are below 10% now. Several states ahead us, including the oft-touted NC.

NC especially suffered with many Floridians escaping the heat/congestion and our bad economy as well as the substantial numbers who moved to NC from across the country during the height of the booms in Charlotte and Raleigh/Durham. I don't think it'll be long before NC passes FL thanks to diversification of their economy, something which Florida will continue to struggle with.
