Jacksonville dropped two spots on US News & World Report's annual list of The Best Places to Live in the U.S. but held its spot as the fourth best place in Florida.

The annual list ranks 150 of the largest U.S. municipalities, weighing factors such as unemployment rate, housing costs, household income, crime rate, education, health care and air quality to determine the rankings.
