Most people do like these states and that is why they are being discussed and why they are growing
I only care when they try to lump me in with THEM. NO, I am NOT thrilled to have year round summer that YOU think is heaven on earth.

I'm sorry, but Naples DOES NOT have year-round summer. Winter in Naples experiences average highs in the low 70s...which is very different from the summer average temperatures - not to mention much lower humidity and precipitation.

I'm so tired of people posting misinformation simply because they don't like a particular place. WE KNOW YOU HATE NAPLES! Who cares? Enough already.

I'm really losing my patience fast with all the off topic and trolling posts, so stop it now.

Maybe they should go spend a week in Austin, Houston and Dallas. Not the primary vacation destinations often thought of so those that don't travel and see the country are not up to speed so learn from places like City-data<g>.. You have to really differentiate the big growing cities and small town TX IMHO..

I used to tell folks down here in Florida how Houston was growing faster than anyplace here during our phoney housing boom of 2003-06 and had a real economy with real demand for all those inexpensive new houses. Most thought that couldn't be true 'because who would move to Texas'. Of course none had ever even been there but heard about cowboys, JR Ewing and something about clearing brush in Crawford and thought they had the state figured out<g>

TX is doing a hell of a lot better than FL. All we have here (for most part) are people buying and selling homes to eachother, back and forth for a few yrs. Now that's over. TX is where people are moving to for jobs, etc. People mainly move to FL beacause "it's cheapa than Loooowng Island" and that's where all their freinds from Long Island moved to because it's cheaper and there's now snow. Pretty silly reasons.

The thread was not started for "bashing"; surely someone has some interesting thoughts about the discrepancies between total population and total posts?

LOL!!!!!

So in your mind, Naples and Atlanta are exactly the same now?

They could not be more different from each other if they tried to be.
