The cost of living in the Tampa area is way up. Houses cost more. Rents are higher. Gas and groceries are more expensive. One way to save a little bit of money is to check out the suburbs.

But Niche compiled this list based on information from the US Census and other agencies measuring things like the cost of living, schools, crime rates, and property values.
