This is an interesting list of the most desirable places in the United States. Nothing against the fine people of Ft. Myers, Florida but I don't know how that is a better place to live than Sarasota. Perhaps it is the lower average home price? Also, I don't see Naples, Florida on this list and that is a great place to live. How about Miami, Florida? I would rather live there than Port St. Lucie. Charlotte, North Carolina didn't make the list? Personally, I would rather live there than New Orleans. 

Different strokes for different folks. ;-)
