Just wanted to pop in and say that we've been here for 4 months now and we still love it. My dh's job is going well. I'm very happy with my son's school and my daughter's daycare. Church is great. People are extremely friendly. We're making friends. The great outdoors and hobbies are great. We have an offer in on a house and things are looking good. However, the Florida forum here is so depressing. It seems like no one has anything good to say about Florida. Maybe I'll change my mind in a few months or years, but honestly, right now Florida is everything we wanted it to be and more. I can't wait for the house to close, buy a new grill and patio furniture, have a cookout and really settle down for good.

Why is Palm Coast called that when there are no palm trees along the coast?

I think it's important to remember that there are all kinds of different people in the world, all with different personalities, different ages, different levels of experience and knowledge, different beliefs, different tastes, and different issues to deal with. I do not believe that it's possible for anyone's comments to be divorced from these differences. The anonymity of the Internet, the fact that all the posts in a forum look kinda the same, etc. tends to lead to a situation where we put equal weight on each comment, whereas if we were to pass by everyone posting in the street, many of them we'd just pass by (and for different reasons for different people).

We live in Flagler Beach and we love it, but it is really hard to find work here. My husband does marine construction and has been laid off for six months. I'm a nurse and am looking at driving to Jax or St. Augustine for work, as there is one hospital here and no pysch department, which is what I do. There are agencies but one of them told me she has about 25 nurses waiting for assignments.

Our kids don't like it here or in Palm Coast,where we lived first. They think it is boring. There is a drug problem here but no different than what it was like back in GA and SC where we have also lived. I think the main thing is kids getting bored. Still, when I have talked about getting better jobs other places, my kids are begging me to stay here till the school year's out at least. They like their friends. I like the schools, especially the ones for the "R" section.

Palm Coast is a overgrown sub division, it is nothing like the thriving historic towns in New Jersey with great employment opportunities.

I don't know why people constantly compare Palm Coast to cities up North or to cities in Florida. It's not a Northern city and it's not a big Florida city. Either you appreciate it for what it is or you don't. It's the very fact that it is unlike these other places that I appreciate. If someone wants to live in a big city, Palm Coast is not the place to live, but that's no reason to malign it.
