Dr Phillips Florida Among Top Places to Live

Dr Phillips Florida Among Top Places to Live

Money.com just released its 2015 Top 50 Places to Live in the U.S., and Florida is on the charts with the Orlando suburb Dr Phillips coming at number 26 on the list. Put together each year, the financial advice website and magazines uses 39 data points to determine which are the best places to live in the nation. The starting point for the list is towns with a population of 10,000- 50,000, providing a base foundation at the town level as opposed to major metropolitan centers. The data points used to compile the rankings cover a range of categories including Employment, Economy, Housing Affordability, Education, Health, Crime, Arts & Leisure and Ease of living. Within each category specific findings are reviewed to come up with the final list.

Dr. Phillips currently has a population of 11,147, with a median income of $87,143 and a job growth rate of 17.7. Median home prices are at $256,563 with a property tax rate of $4,004. According to Money.com, the main reason for the success of the suburb is tourism. Being in close proximity to the major theme parks such as Disney World and Universal, there is plenty to do nearby. But more important than entertainment choices is the incredible job growth that Dr. Phillips is experiencing. As the home of Orlando’s Restaurant Row, Dr. Phillips claims the second highest job growth rate in the entire top 50 list. With 27 restaurants, and a wide variety of international cuisines to choose from, Dr. Phillips is a food lover’s dream come true. The success of this industry here has bolstered the growth of the suburb.

There is life beyond the theme parks in Dr. Phillips, which Money.com also noted. In keeping with their in-depth review of the top 50 towns, they mention the incredible lakes in the area, which provide a high ranking for leisure and health-related activities such as fishing, boating and swimming, all of which can be enjoyed year round. There are also over 140 golf courses available; our outdoor activities are a definite draw for new families moving into the area. Another prime focus of the ranking for Dr. Phillips: the schools are highly recommended, receiving top marks themselves.

Money talks, and when Money.com publishes its lists of top places to live, people listen. Dr. Phillips is a prime suburb of Orlando worth looking into should you be ready to move to this incredible area of Florida.
