Considering a move to Florida. Pretty familiar with the state; did my boot camp down here back in the early 70's, have returned for trips to St. Pete/Tampa, Orlando, Key West, St. Augustine, JAX since then. Love the ocean and the Gulf.

I'm in Wisconsin but always loved California so I'm looking for a little of that SoCal vibe somewhere in Florida since I can't afford the real SoCal. Also looking for a decent university/college scene for my daughter that has a good business school or Art school. If real estate's a little pricey that's OK as long as property taxes are less than what I'm paying now,- $3.2k on a $250k home.

Not too crime-ridden. Milwaukee's no walk in the park but the violence tends to be isolated to only certain areas. Less crime the better.

Decent job growth would be good.

So what are the best areas that fit that description in Florida?
