Kind of ignorant too, no offense. I hate South FL, but I wouldn't say I wouldnt enjoy living in St Johns Co or Nassau Co because its in FL.

This.

There is not an equally sized or even slightly bigger metro in Florida that is as awesome as Greenville.

That is normal. When you enter FL, the first real city you actually can see when passing through is Jax. And believe me, it's not a pretty sight when driving through there on I-95.

This topic really comes down to how people feel about Florida. Most people either love or hate Florida

Not sure how you get a bad vibe driving through SC because Florida along the interstate in rural areas looks similar to SC along the interstate through rural areas. Pretty sure you just don't like SC for other reasons.

Well in SC that's even more true because, as I said, the interstates don't go through the centers of the cities. You can see a little of Columbia's skyline from a distance near the I-26/I-77 junction, and you can't see Greenville's or Spartanburg's at all from I-85. Myrtle Beach doesn't even have interstate access and I-26 is the only interstate Charleston has and it terminates at the northern, more industrial part of the peninsula.

Sure they don't. But I guess because Florida has more cities and interstates that go through MOST of the cities it gives you an idea. Somewhat. It;s unfortunate. While we may say "Oh hey get off and explore the city" not that many people have time and we can only judge a place for what we see while we are on our way to another place.

I'll only go back to see Myrtle Beach really. That place seems like a place to visit.

This is true.

It's a lot of fun; I've heard it's the most visited destination in the country without direct interstate access. Not sure if that's true, but I can believe it.

I always thought that was Key West? lol.
If that's true that's a pretty neat nitpick there.

I just Googled it; the highest figures I see for Key West are 3.5-4 million annual visitors. Myrtle Beach gets about 14 million visitors annually.
