Default What is the best place to live in Florida for a single 40 y/o?

Thinking of moving to Florida (south) very soon. I will be moving alone, no children and would be looking for a safe, quiet apartment. Would like to live close to a beach also. Any suggestions?

I'd recommend Palm Beach County, particularly Jupiter or Palm Beach Gardens. Check out Abacoa in Jupiter which is a nice planned community.

I wouldn't reccomend Jupiter for her. She would want a larger area.

I'd recommend either Miami Beach, Ft Lauderdale, Clearwater, or Sarasota.

based on the fact that she's a single 40 year old woman and Jupiter is a small family town with many more retirees than single 40 year men.

Ummm, not really. Here's actual fact:

There are 16,945 households out of which 26.6% have children under the age of 18 living with them, 55.8% are married couples living together, 8.4% have a female householder with no husband present, and 32.7% are non-families. 25.8% of all households are made up of individuals and 10.4% have someone living alone who is 65 years of age or older. The average household size is 2.32 and the average family size is 3.15. In the town the population is spread out with 20.7% under the age of 18, 5.1% from 18 to 24, 28.8% from 25 to 44, 26.5% from 45 to 64, and 18.9% who are 65 years of age or older. The median age is 42 years. For every 100 females there are 97.2 males. For every 100 females age 18 and over, there are 94.2 males.

Interesting ... 42 years old median age.

Im almost 50, no kids. I live in Ft. Laud.

Naples, Sarasota, maybe the Keys? ... Miami Beach if you can handle all the miserly Jewish people. Brickell in downtown Miami if you don't mind super rich, and spoiled trust fund kids from Colombia and Venezuela.

Fort Lauderdale, Miami Beach and Key West have a much higher than average density of gay men, so the odds for single women gets much longer in those locations. 60% of Miami Beach's population is under the age of 44 which would leave the 40 year old OP feeling a bit on the "old side". Naples has an average age of 61 so we're talking a bit long in the tooth there. Sarasota is very similar to Jupiter, but in my opinion more removed from a larger metro area than Jupiter which sits right outside West Palm Beach.


Naples:

There were 10,803 households out of which 10.9% had children under the age of 18 living with them, 53.8% were married couples living together, 5.0% had a female householder with no husband present, and 39.2% were non-families. 34.0% of all households were made up of individuals and 20.1% had someone living alone who was 65 years of age or older. The average household size was 1.92 and the average family size was 2.38.
In the city the population was spread out with 10.9% under the age of 18, 2.3% from 18 to 24, 14.5% from 25 to 44, 30.0% from 45 to 64, and 42.3% who were 65 years of age or older. The median age was 61 years. For every 100 females there were 86.0 males. For every 100 females age 18 and over, there were 83.9 males.

Sarasota:

There were 23,427 households out of which 19.7% had children under the age of 18 living with them, 35.3% were married couples living together, 12.3% had a female head of household with no husband present, and 48.5% were non-families. 38.3% of all households were made up of individuals and 16.3% had someone living alone who was 65 years of age or older. The average household size was 2.12 and the average family size was 2.81.
In the city the population was spread out with 18.4% under the age of 18, 9.2% from 18 to 24, 27.9% from 25 to 44, 22.5% from 45 to 64, and 22.0% who were 65 years of age or older. The median age was 41 years. For every 100 females there were 94.6 males. For every 100 females age 18 and over, there were 92.8 males.

Miami Beach:

As of 2000, there were 46,194 households out of which 14.0% had children under the age of 18 living with them, 27.4% were married couples living together, 8.5% had a female householder with no husband present, and 60.3% were non-families. 48.7% of all households were made up of individuals and 14.8% had someone living alone who was sixty-five years of age or older. The average household size was 1.87 and the average family size was 2.76.

In the city the population was spread out with 13.4% under the age of 18, 7.8% from 18 to 24, 38.2% from 25 to 44, 21.3% from 45 to 64, and 19.2% who were sixty-five years of age or older. The median age was thirty-nine years. For every 100 females there were 105.0 males. For every 100 females age eighteen and over, there were 105.4 males.
