Its all about this thing called quality of life!
I have read many articles and surveys about quality of life. What is it? They all have differing criteria used for the their specific purpose (slant) but I believe quality of life is an individual thing. Only you know what constitutes a high quality of life.
Here in Brevard County, Florida, specifically the Viera, Rockledge, Suntree, Cocoa Beach areas where I live and work I see it as...
- ease of commute
- low crime rate
- Outstanding schools
- lots of recreational opportunities
- easy access to excellent dining
- good golf (a recreational category of its own)
- educational and personal development opportunities
- opportunities for religious expression
- reasonable tax rate (taxes can always be lower!)
- excellent municipal services
