Florida is a very big state. I moved here over 25 years ago. A lot of it has changed, and a lot more of it has not. If you want old Florida, it's there, it's just not 35 miles from a major metropolitan area. There are old little towns throughout the state that haven't changed much in decades. If you are from an area that went from rural to urban, sell your place, take your truckload of cash, and get something in BFE Florida, believe me, it's still there. It just might not be where you wish it would be, but it's there.

I've been to Fl in June and September, but have missed the tourist season, thank god. I love it there. The people are friendly. The weather is great for old bones and joints. There are some of the best hospitals in the country. The problem is the economics not being conducive to affordable living. Government and business has made it that way. I have family there and they almost had me convinced to move there, but then the last couple years has play nasty to many. A lot of people that moved there were slammed and lost what paradise they had. One day it will return to paradise, but for now it's a visit for many every now and then.

i very much agree with you. i was in fort lauderdale and in the keys back in march of this year, and also in october 2004, and many people were extremely friendly. also, i telephoned a few agencies down there for people with disabilities, and i do remember someone telling me that some of the best doctors in florida would be found in fort lauderdale.
