For many Americans, living by the beach is a desirable dream where luxury meets relaxation. The coastal lifestyle is a milestone on the pursuit of happiness, and we’re lucky enough to be living in one of the best beach towns to live in the nation- Jupiter, Florida. According to data collected from the U.S. Census Bureau, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, National Association of REALTORS, and others, Jupiter ranked as the 11th best beachside town to live in the nation!
161 cities were compared across seven key aspects: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education, health, and quality of life. Those aspects were evaluated using 58 metrics, respectively, and each metric was rated on a 100-point scale, then weighted and calculated to produce the resulting scores.
Jupiter ranked 7th in “affordability”, which factors in low property taxes and housing costs, as well as high median household income.
Jupiter also ranked 3rd in “economy”, which factors in low unemployment and poverty rates, high income growth, high credit scores, and a low amount of foreclosures and bankruptcies.
Jupiter’s Palm Beach County neighbor, Boca Raton, also ranked as one of the best beach towns to live in America, factored in at an impressive 7th place!
