I like to visit my friends and family there, and there's lots of nice places. It's affordable, too. Unfortunately it gets way too hot in the summer.

I'm here on the central east coast where there's still some room to breath.

My town has a communist power company run by Republicans... as a result our electric bills are three times as high as those of our neighbors, but the rents are low.

Culture? What culture?

Winter was way too cold this year, but about seven months of summer are just alright by me.

I like Fla. in the winter months.In summer it's too humid.There's some very reasonable places to live there.I think I prefer the West Coast to the East,but I'd need to do more looking around to be sure.I've yet to explore the middle,but a couple of people have told me it's "backwards" there.One old friend loves it,so I'd like to see for myself.Overall,not at the top of my list-but certainly worth checking out.

Florida's weather, plants and animals are like a tropical country in Central America. It's unlike the rest of the US. I love palm trees, longleaf pines, long legged birds and hawks in the air everywhere. I love being able to do things outdoors 12 months of the year, not being shut in for 4-5 months of winter. Yes, it's hot and humid in summer, but no worse than the Deep South or East Texas. Too many tourists think Florida is the east coast version of Los Angeles based on visits to Orlando or Miami. Away from big cities, there is a wide selection of nice towns with individual personalities; they're not all the same. Some have good schools, some don't. Some are full of old people, most aren't. The Atlantic coast has many immigrants from NY and NJ; Gulf Coast people are mostly from the Midwest; the non-coastal strip down the middle is local rednecks except Orlando, which has traffic congestion and bad tourist drivers. Housing is cheap, thanks to the big crash. Unfortunately, unemployment is high, especially outside big cities. Hurricanes are not a threat north of Orlando. Jacksonville has only been hit once and that was a freak. Orlando has never been hit; the often cited Charlie was a tropical storm by the time it got to Orlando. Florida is #4 in state population, bigger than IL and PA. I live in beautiful Palm Coast, fastest growing county in the US between 2000 and 2005, when the number of houses doubled in five years. Now it's one of the hardest hit by the real estate crash, meaning lots of cheap NEW houses. It's still beautiful. The only thing I dislike about Florida is too many New Yorkers. My favorite part of Florida is the Atlantic coast north of Daytona, because it's less developed than South Florida and not as hot.

Many people from here, Michigan, move to Florida when they hit big 60. I've been in Florida twice - in Orlando and in Miami. Loved both places. Love visiting Florida, but can't imagine living there.

Im thinking about the Northern part of the state. The Northern part maintains some Southern culture which is important to me. And if I get homesick I can fly home cheaply to visit at the drop of a hat. Very convenient for me.

God's waiting room. The only place in the state that's not repulsive is St. Augustine.

Unless I lived at Disney World I wouldn't care to live here! The beaches aren't safe like California(they have sharks!) and it's really humid. Though I don't mind humidity I wouldn't love to live in it. There's even alot of hurricanes. However Disney really makes me want to live there!
