What I enjoy about this area:
-Genuine, honest, hardworking people. We are low middle class, but happy and all part of a community.
-Safe. Violent crime is nearly unheard of here
-The natural beauty is stunning
-Very affordable

I am looking for a similar town somewhere in Florida to visit in the winter and possibly make it a yearly stay. Being away from chain stores and malls is a plus. They are fun to visit from time to time but far from a necessity.

Does anything come to anyone's mind when I describe an area like this? I would prefer Orlando and south for the winter warmth.

Suggestions welcomed!
Seriously, check it out.
