Miami's the worst.

No. I am waiting on the interplanetary shuttle to be built because that's a MUCH better idea.

That's true CA is not a realistic option for most Floridians. CA however is a much nicer state overall to live in.

Then again it doesn't take a lot to beat Florida.. Unless, of course, all you want is warm weather.

I lived in California before. NO THX to that again. Loving where we live in Florida. The most of any place we have ever lived.

The people and drivers are very rude and rather stupid, as well. Not a lot of common sense here. People are totally self-centered and oblivious to others around them. There are pockets of civilization, but not a lot of choice if you aren't wealthy enough to live apart from it all. Used to love Miami 20 years ago--it pretty much sucks now.

Moving up the coast an hour or so, but still loving Florida, palm trees, blue skies, nice weather, beautiful beaches, and best of all--no snow or sleet or cold. I don't love humidity, but I can deal with it for a couple of months to avoid scraping ice from my windshield and warming up the car, layered dressing with many layers and all that heavy winter gear. It's just a simpler way of life.
My boyfriend and I went nuts driving down in Miami when we went to visit my family. We had to wake up really early to not sit in traffic all day. Drivers are horrible in S. Fl and Southern Louisiana too. I don't mind snow and ice. Even if it lasts for over 3 months. The heat is doable when you have a car with air conditioning. I don't. My boyfriend keeps the car and he lives two hours away so I have to WALK everywhere. I would rather walk when it is snowing than when the sun is beating down and I am covered in sweat. Seriously, as long as I am well dressed, the 20s are a piece of cake and snow is beautiful. Also, when I finish school and hopefully move to Minnesota, I'm getting a house with a garage. No need to scrape that much Over the years I started to find palm trees dull, and the heat insufferable. I cannot wait to see the leaves change in November. Hope you find a place in Florida where it is not so crowded and drivers don't completely suck. The panhandle and the gulf side in general is really nice.

California really has it together politically. They've always been ahead of the country. I love every area I've been to, especially Solana Beach and up by San Francisco. I plan to take a trip up Highway 1 to Marin County next.

If I "could", I would. I would love to move back to GA, which I absolutely loved, but I have a daughter in second year of high school, and it would be a travesty to pull her out.

Maybe 3 years from now, when she's done with highschool, I'll skip out of this state. Not that I hate it, but I'm just not a tropical person, and I prefer seasons.

South Florida is too overcrowded and it's only going to get worse. Thinking of eventually going the halfback route or head west. Just need more space and a little more civility in life.

Me and my girlfriend would like to move out of florida, but we don't have the money to move. We would like to go to a place that has less crime and bad drivers.
