U.S. News and World Report has ranked Tampa Bay among the Top 50 in its annual list of the Best Places to Live in the U.S. for 2022.
The Tampa Bay metro – consisting of Tampa, St. Pete and Clearwater – made the No. 39 spot in this year’s list, falling from last year’s No. 32 ranking.
The report described living in Tampa Bay like “being on vacation all year.” The report ranked the metros based on several factors, including quality of life, job market, desirability and net migration. U.S. News analyzed the 150 most populous metros to make the list.
