America's Growing Towns - Florida has 4 out of the top ten
April 5th, 2010 10:30 AM

More Americans have moved to communities in these counties since 2000.

Residents of Flagler County are likely contending with busier highways and more crowded classrooms than they did about 10 years ago. That's because Flagler, like several Florida counties including Sumter County, St. John's County and Lake County, have been magnets for movers over the last decade; here, the balmy climate and a booming housing market drew retirees and families before the bubble burst, according to new population estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau.
