Editor’s Note: Data has been updated for 2022. This is our ninth time ranking the best Hialeah suburbs.

Big city living isn't for everyone--but at the same time, urban areas certainly have their perks.

There's the culture, the food, the arts, the food, the energy, and you know, the food. But there are drawbacks. There's traffic, expensive parking, expensive housing--pretty much, expensive everything, depending on which big city you're looking at.

But that's where the suburbs come in--they have all of the benefits of being near big cities, without actually having to be big cities.

Of course, not all suburbs of Hialeah are created equally, which is precisely why we set out to find the best ones. So without further ado...

What's the best suburb of Hialeah? Key Biscayne ranks as the best suburb of Hialeah for 2022 based on the most recent Census and FBI data. If you happen to be a resident of Key Biscayne, you're probably not too surprised to find it on the top our list.

We'll tell you what makes each of these 10 Hialeah 'burbs better than the rest--but first, a bit about our methodology.

Note: This result may differ from our state wide data as we did not include commute times and crime for this analysis to allow for a larger selection of suburbs.
