Friendly Central Florida -Volusia, Brevard, Lake, Flagler, Pinellas

Unfriendly Central Florida -Polk and Hillsborough

This is just a general opinion, as there are friendly people in every county and vice versa. I can't comment on the other counties because I have not spend time in them.
I love St Augustine but lots of people advise against it. I've spent most time in the central portion so I'm thinking of making it home. I'm far from decide...maybe my next post will be friendliest county in NE Fl...

"Tampa is the hottest, there is so much conrete and cars there it heats up the atmosphere, and there is no real seabreeze to counteract."

OMG, SW FL is so hot. It's hot everywhere in FL, especially in the summer, but that area by Ft Myers, Tampa, Sarasota, etc... = HOT!!!

Although it seemed a bit ambiguous, I thought he had to be joking.

The Polk County, FL area is quiet, and cities like Winter Haven, which is where I live, offer a nice, laid back environment.

Generally due to a perceived lack of opportunities. Expensive housing is another. What do you think of the great city?

I've got to say Winterhaven is an area I've been looking at but it's somewhere that lots of people give a bad rep. Who do you believe?
