I lived in Broward County and moved to Boise Idaho. Been here 2 years now. We like it here with four seasons, mountains etc. The only problem has been the economy. But that's probably the situation in the whole country.

I'd love to know which state is doing well now and actually thriving.

Anybody??

Weirdly you are on the Alabama forum and our economy is indeed thriving. We have one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country and the recession has not hit here at all. While we have had a slowdown in real estate sales, home prices have not made a major decline.

IN the past decade, Alabama has done an astonishing job at attracting new industries and more are coming. We actually have a job shortage,,,,

Bravo,
I may bounce around on the forums if I see something of interest. That's good news that Alabama is doing well. I'm not sure that I would ever be able to deal with the humidity factor again. Simply mowing the lawn in the summer nearly induced heat strokes.
