That may be true, but many of New Jerseys suburbs would be considered urban by Florida standards.

Summer activities just don't appeal to me. Plus I am in weird old snowbird haven Naples. At least in glorious season (November through March)they plan events and activites, like fine art and arts and crafts shows, when the tourists and snowbirds are here. When season is over and everybody leaves, it's as dead as a doornail. Even the development where I live shuts down the golf course, clubhouse and restaurant one day a week when our "seasonal residents" go home. There are no events planned until at least October.

Boring and hot. Who would want to go out now anyway when the heat index is pushing or over 100 degrees? I went once last summer to the beach with my daughter. The air temp (not counting heat index) was 95 degrees. The water temp that day was 89 degrees. That is pleasant? Not for me. It was more enjoyable taking a cold shower when I got home.

No, I don't like Florida, but Naples is probably the WORST place to be in Florida.

I spoke to my parents this morning and they told me they can't even go out and walk because the heat and humidity is so high in Orlando that they are scared they will pass out. They are essentially prisoners in their own home in the summer.

So you're pretty much uninterested in nature preserves, snorkeling, beaches, and theatre? I'm curious as to what you actually do or did for fun.

I wonder how many on this thread who prefer Florida are politically conservative, and in contrast, who on this thread who prefer NY are politically liberal?

Many of which would be considered ghetto by Florida standards.

Sit on the internet and whine, moan and complain.

I doubt it, Florida has its large share of "Ghetto" neighborhoods as you would call them.

I prefer New York and I'm pretty socially liberal by all accounts.

Yeah. I like Summer activities in the Summer, and even then I get done with them pretty quickly. But I'm actually going down there this summer to visit family. I'll enjoy it for a week or so then be glad I'm going back home.
