We are expecting millions of new Floridians over the next few decades. Where do you think they will live?

I dont see where the Miami-Palm Beach area can take much more...

Well, lots of people have been relocating to Jax, Orlando and Tampa, so those cities will probably continue to grow.

I'd expect the Panhandle to grow, and North Central Florida as well.

I'd imagine those projections might not be as accurate now. The Florida real estate market and the overall US economy have probably set those projections back some.

Eventually Hwy. 60 from Tampa to Vero Beach will be built solid. A concrete jungle that crosses the entire state if developers are to have there way. Once it was remote but every year it is being built up more. Highway 27 in the middle of the state is a boom town to from Lake Placid to Ocala sooner or later.

Broward County is full, keep on going to North Carolina, everyone is rude (the cashiers at Publix burp and fart when you approach) and crime will come and steal your soul.

That acutally already started. I believe they are widening 60 and have plans for building a few homes not far away from the interchange, to the east.

Many acres of ranch land has been sold for development near there. I think the new name for the area has been dubbed "Destiny". A few months back there was a sign south on 441 list acre lots for only $49,000. Sound familiar? These were in the flat woods miles from now where except Yee Haw.

A lot of the native Floridians will and are going to continue to leave especially as the malcontents keep coming. One person leaving, one person coming, and so on...

I don't understand. Many of these threads started by those who dislike Florida state that there is a mass exodus out of the state. Now it can't be both ways???

In our own good time. People have to sell homes, buy them elsewhere, quit jobs/find jobs, etc., etc. It doesn't happen overnight.
