MELBOURNE, Fla. – Access to launches, beautiful waterways and a good mix of entertainment launches are just a few of the reasons Melbourne was named one of the best places to live in America in 2019.

U.S. News & World Report released its annual ranking on Tuesday, with Melbourne ranking No. 25 on the 125-city list. Sarasota, which came in at No. 18, was the only other Florida city to crack the top 25.

Researchers at U.S. News & World Report evaluated each city based on five different indexes to determine the metro area’s score. The indexes were a job market index, a value index, a quality of life index, a desirability index and a net migration index.
