The lack of infrastructure is what is killing us now. The overseas market is kicking our butts. Even most of our oranges come from Mexico.

True. The booming Southern States seem to actually be keeping up with thier growth. Well, certainly not Atlanta though! The traffic there will kill you in that area compared to ANYWHERE in Florida.Schools are getting crowded too. Seriously, the road network actually works fairly well in my county. You won't really experience delays except for on I-595, and even those wear off after not long. Atlanta was a freaking mess. I will take I-95 at 5 o clock on Friday coming out of Miami to I-85 in Atlanta on Sunday morning, sans the horrific drivers.

North Carolina seems to be doing a much better job. Charlotte and especially the Research Triangle area are doing a fantastic job keeping their infrastructure in tip top shape. If Raleigh was not so boring,and Weston/SW Broward was as much of a **ithole as the rest of South Florida, I would move to Cary in a heartbeat.

I do like living in a newer, well off, well manicured suburb, with a highly educated population and to tell you the truth, the only place I have seen that matches Weston for that is Cary. Some people call it "bland", but why Weston (in my opinion) is throned by no other suburban area is its proximity to the non-blandness when you need to get out of it. Where else can you get mind-numbingly low crime, excellent schools, wide open roads, convenience to basic amenities(yet not far from some real excitement and coastline), great schools, a diverse yet well educated populace, and all of this under the Florida sunshine? Thats why I would LOVE to see the prices come down to where they used to be. This area used to be positively unbeatable when it was affordable. Still, this is one of the only cities in South Florida that I genuinely think are worth it, if you don't mind dealing with insane HOA rules.

Anything outside of Cary is, well, boring, and so is Cary itself. Plus because we bought before the bubble, Weston is affordable for us. Now I would like to see a pedestrian friendly version of this type of town . This is hardly a sustainable way to build! Reading into the hubbert peak theory more and more really has me thinking about that...

There is something to be said for not living near family, but that is a completely different subject. Why not live in a small town outside of Orlando?

Yeah. Ocala maybe? The theoretical beginning of the south?
