That is ludicrous. I don't believe any of it! I've lived in Mirarmar and worked in North Miami Beach. There is absolutely no way North Miami Beach or Miramar should rank higher than The Villages in any of the rankings. BTW......Johnny Depp lived in Miramar during his teen years, Some of the other cities around this area do not measure up either. I don't believe this ranking at all.

Absolutely agree. Something just doesn't add up with those rankings. I tend to agree only with the health care which is a very big consideration when looking for a place to retire. The other rankings (besides "quality of life") is hogwash.

Subjective, unscientific clickbait. Who cares?

Tampa is top rated, which is a city of mostly high priced homes and condos. Yet Wesley Chapel is a suburb 20 miles north which has interstate connections to downtown in 20 minutes and has Costco, golf courses, malls, movie theaters and is rated at the bottom like TV. Any senior with common sense would chose Wesley Chapel and the suburb lifestyle rather than the city hustle bustle of urban life, but they rate the city life as a high priority, total non-sense.

Under construction in Wesley Chapel

Absolutely, been there and it’s not for retirees.

Well at least one person can't be accused of being on the 'The Developers' payrole!
