I was just in gulfport which is like 10 minutes from st pete and is a gorgeous little town with a great arts scene and lots of cool little cafes and restaurants gr. tons of those quaint little beachfront towns near st pete around like dunedin, alot more nice small towns and country when you get away from the coast

For Cindy and jk I would come and stay a while and really research the various areas and use air band b and visit alot of places, its all about where you live in florida. I read spring hillian mention mt dora and thats where my great grandparents are from, its old florida at its best. This is a wonderful b and b where you can explore mt dora https://www.yelp.com/biz/adora-inn-mount-dora

there are some really nice b and b s in dunedin and caladesi island is a must see. Once you guys see a real palm tree and grow an orange tree and all types of amazing things and see the gorgeous rivers and beaches you love florida. I couldnt grow much in maryland, much less a palm or citrus

dunedin
Will probably end up in Dixie, Gilchrist, or north Levy County. Seems like my best option to avoid living in a area that will get developed, & Gainesville is only 45-60 minutes away which I would only go to for work.

I have plans on moving to TN or GA, or the Carolinas too. The weather here sucks.

Oh my god yes. I've been down here since Thursday. With the humidity even 75 can feel really hot to some people.

You two have clearly never experienced Florida between May and October. The highs are above 90 for this entire span with extremely high humidity throughout the day. And at night, there is no real cooldown, 75 as a low if you are lucky. The Floridian weather you northern snowbirds think of is in no way representative of our state's climate for the majority of the year.

What? I was agreeing that the weather is crap. I grew up in Florida, I believe I know a thing or two about Florida at its hottest. But thanks!

Oh, I'm sorry. You don't know me but I will explain. I have been to Florida in the hottest months many times......June, July, August, September. I have been to many places in Florida........Daytona Beach, Cocoa Beach, North Reddington Beach, Ft Myers, Beverly Hills, Crystal River, Miami, Key West. Yes, I know Florida has two temps---Hot and Hotter. I get it
Here in Wisconsin we can have 10 degrees in the morning and then 60 a few hours later, then it will snow at night. Crazy. We have the four seasons here.....sometimes all in one day. Anywho, I think some people just get tired of where they are so they move. No worries.

70's feel cool to me and 80's are perfect. The 55 deg weather we get first thing in the morning are downright cold. Looking forward to the return of summer.

I've been looking at places a little farther north and the winter temps aren't going to cut it. Probably end up going another hour south before I'd ever go north.
