Besides, in Flarida you can only get a pastrami sandwich as big as your head in Miami. And I'm not sure that you can get a stromboli anywhere.

I think using statistics from within the state are more justified when comparing a state to a state in a thread and since you brought up Orlando I narrowed it down to county.
This is NJ VS FLA is it not? Not NJ/PA/DE/MD VS FLA

I prefer mature attractions such as museums and the such which can be found in my metro area.
Sorry but more than 10 year olds go to those parks and there are other numerous attractions within the area including museums, the Orlando Ballet, The Orlando Philharmonic, etc.

I do like how you keep bringing up metro area since it seems you have to leave your state or drive an hour to do these things you speak of.

There has to be good reason that New Jersey is the most densely population state. ;-)

Incorrect, since you know most people work within their metro area not only within their county. How long have you been a Realtor?

There has to be a good reason why Florida is one of the fastest growing states over the last 30 years.

Lets just pull a few from what you say Jersey has to offer. NFL teams, Florida has 3. NBA teams, Florida has 2. NHL teams, Florida has 2. And you forgot MLB, Florida has 2.

And since this is comparing states I think mentioning cities within the state would be in order. Florida has Miami, Orlando, Tampa, etc. Jersey has ?

I am not trying to claim Jersey is a boring state but you completely misrepresent Florida to build up Jersey.

Edit: Just wanted to add that you will be able to strike NBA team from your list in 1 1/2 years.
Right -- NJ by nature is suburban, since it's sandwiched between 2 very important cities -- both much more important than any city Florida has. People in NJ care not that Philly and NYC are in "other" states -- we share the river banks with them, so we have quick and easy access to them, while escaping to our suburban homes across the river.

There is nowhere in Florida that can offer the culture that one can find in NYC and North Jersey.

Yes -- it is a matter of personal tastes, and everybody has varying opinions. The only objective measure we can use is cost of land and real estate - and NJ real estate is in higher demand (and therefore more costly -- you pay for what you get).

How is Florida's crime rate?

How is Florida's unemployment rate?

FL people, if I were you I'd be trying to convince the NJ people that FL was a really crappy place that no one in his/her mind would want to live. *whistles innocently*
