We will be moving to our home in Enfield near daughter,We will spend final years with family,I am 81,do not relish the thought with CT a to heavily taxed state with no meaningful exemptions.
I transferred to Jacksonville Beach in 1964-71,then to Denver (1971-1988) and back to Lake City,Fl till now.With hind site being 20-20 I wish I had never left.Our time in Denver was most enjoyable,during our time growth had not taken place.

Lived in both Providence and Boston for a time. I always knew I would move back eventually to be closer to my family.

A more interesting thread would be "Have you ever moved out of CT and never desired to return?" But it would be pointless to ask in the CT forum, of course.

I moved out of CT last year, July. I lived to florida. Mostly to take advantage of the housing market, and a fresh new life. Except.....

I hate it in florida

Needless to say I have learned my lesson and hopefully will be returning next month. I didn't even make it a year.

Florida is so much different..and not in the ways most imagine. (Including myself)

I miss the family feel of CT. It is a place to raise children. They have better healthcare, better schools and better paying jobs. The cost of living is not that different either. Yeah, you have high taxes, but my car insurence went up over a hundred dollars a month for car insurance in FL, grocerys are more expensive here, and forget homeowners insurance.

Goodbye Florida. I will be happy to visit you, but never again will I return for good!

Born and raised in CT and have moved away but came back due to unaffordable healthcare elsewhere.

Same for me with North Carolina..although I do disagree about the cost of living..its killer up here compared to there.

No. Born and lived in Westchester for almost 3 decades, now living in CT for a decade. Will never go back to NY (except visiting family). I'd love to stay in CT all my life but weather might play a role in me moving north to a better more comfortable colder climate. If I don't moving to another state it would be to northern CT at least.

I lived/live in CT my entire life except for a few years I lived in Providence. I like CT, but I also feel like I like it because it feels comfortable. To me, once I get comfortable I get bored so I'm thinking it might be time to check out with the rest of the Country looks like. But this more than likely will not happen.

That's the issue I'm currently facing as well. After living for a total of 27 years of my life (I'm 29 now), I am just plain BORED of CT. I'm not saying it's a bad place to live. It's generally a great place to live. But I'm just bored of the same old everything and the same lifestyle. Also, much of the young (<35) gay population has left the state in droves, to places like NYC, Boston or Florida or California.

CT is a family oriented state, and that's what I hate about it. It's just not a place you recommend to single people aged 20-40.
