Tampa Bay ranks #3 in the entire country for being fiscally fit. This is based on 3 main categories:

Investment

Life Insurance coverage

And you got it - "QUALITY OF LIFE"

It looks like the people of Tampa Bay are in great shape and enjoying life.

I'm so glad we are here.

I wish you the best with the sale and the move here.

While I can't say Tampa Bay is or is not the place for you, I can say it is like paradise for us. We feel like we are living in a resort area, rather than just visiting it. We have to pinch ourselves every day to make sure this is real.....LOL

Glad to see some positive posts about the area. Too many people around here are negative in an unrealistic sort of way.

This is not very informative. If you're a senior citizen and your financial house is not in order, you can't afford move to Florida for your retirement.

It would be more interesting to see a list which is limited to people under the age of 50.

I fixed your post for you. This is about the people that are already living in these cities, not people moving to them in the future.
This is not to say I give much bearing to the list, this is because I don't give much bearing to any list that comes out from Sperling or Forbes or anyone else.

LOL, are you unaware that most of the retirees in Tampa (and the rest of Florida) moved here from other states?



Most of us already knew that Tampa retirees have a lot of money. We don't need a study to tell us that.

Just curious.. how many summers did you live in Florida? How many hurracains passed by?
I was in your shoes when I first moved to FL from up north, but after living here for years I learned the cost "paradise" life brings... But I am still here! Just wondering if you will be THAT happy 5-10 years down the road

I was "in those shoes" also..........

but back then there was no internet to go on and constantly start new threads about how great "paradise" was......I just enjoyed the "newness" of it and was still discovering new things.

By the time these type of websites were available.......my "sunshine denial" wore off and I started to see what Florida was all about.

This endless "thread starting" and cheerleading is wierd.....it's one thing to post a comment or 2, but to just constantly start new threads about how unbelievable this place is (and how crazy everyone else is to not want to live here) is suspect.

What does quality of life have to do with a fiscal ranking?

It's ironic how the Tampa Bay area can be rated as the most depressing place and the have a high quality of life as well..
