Yeah so quality of life in Miami for a family is extremely expensive. Housing, groceries, transportation, education, child care, amenities, dining etc. Its ridiculous! The beaches are nice and all but its not like you are there every weekend unless you live near the ocean. Cost of living is going up and pay has reduced. If you are single and make a six figure salary then you may be okay for some time until Miami sucks every penny you have and then take your soul so that you are able to compete with every other wannabe millionaire in the city.

I live in Miami for 30 years now, this City is becoming more exiting every year, so many free events, from out door concerts to movies, markets. The beaches are beautiful. There are cons, rental prices are high and salaries are lower than compared to other cities, but the weather makes up for it, you can bike ride, run, play tennis or pickle ball all year around. People are are generally friendly and food is delicious. It definitely helps to speak ( at least some) Spanish.

Health care is completely UNAFFORDABLE: How do you like U$S 19.000 for Normal Childbirth ?

Climate is ridiculous Suffocating 8 months every year Trapped in the car 90 minutes to work ? You NEED A/C EVERYWHERE 9 months out of every year.

You probably will have to SHARE A ROOM if you have a workers salary. That's how UNAFFORDABLE HOUSING IS !

I totally agree with the other commenter who said that the chart is trash. I recently left Miami because quality of life is deteriorating at a fast pace and everything is ridiculously expensive, especially housing, traffic is now one of the top 3 worst in the US and is becoming less safe by the day. It is a city for the millionaires and billionaires, even with that, you have to have your own helicopter to skip the terrible traffic. Did I mention how disrespectful are the drivers and how bad people drive?? Somebody please do a proper chart, it almost looks as if some transplant from an ultra expensive city like San Francisco came to Miami and made this chart.

As a resident of Miami, this chart is trash. The reality of the city is that there are very few jobs that pay more than 20 dollars an hour, even with a college degree, while health care and housing is completely affordably and transportation is slow and underdeveloped. Essentially, you must be rich in order to enjoy Miami.
