IMO, there is no perfect place in FL, well not South of Orlando anyway. I grew up in SFL since the early 80's and after the disgusting price hikes in everything but salary I packed my family and moved to South Carolina. FL could kiss my a$$. Bunch of money hungry Counties/Cities/Towns. Not to mention English is fast becoming the 2nd language. Gas, Food, Taxes, Insurance, all over priced. I am so happy in Upstate South Carolina where the people are real, and everything is affordable, yeah it gets a little cold here and there, but it's all worth it.

I felt the same exact way about NJ. We moved from there to PA and now PA is becoming the same. Unfortunately right now, we can't move but we plan to within the next two years. We're thinking of Fl but not South Fl. Either central west or north central.

It's funny how people can come from two parts of the country and have the same feelings about where they lived. ESP the english becoming a second language and the money hungry cities and towns. NJ was bleeding us dry. The taxes were so high (astronomical!) and not a cent goes to the schools. It all goes to line the pockets of the corrupt politicians. I remember before we decided on Pennsy we looked at new houses there back in 2003. A 2000 ft home with 4 beds cost $450,000 (cheap compared to now) with taxes of $16,500 (which is also cheap in comparison to now). Those same houses are now $750,000 to $850,000 in that same development. I don't even want to know where the taxes are. Good grief!!
I have to say, I think NJ may be the most corrupt state of them all. I'll NEVER go back there!
