Question What is the friendliest area/city in Florida?

St. Pete, from what I am reading on this board, seems to be the winner so far...but I surely could be wrong on that one (I haven't read every post, obviously, on this board).
What is the friendliest area or city in Florida? One that accepts outsiders happily?
I am guessing it will be on the Gulf side?
How about Jacksonville or St. Augustine?
Just what is the friendliest area or city in your State?

I'm unaware of any 'friendly city' contests in Fl. or anywhere else...or is this to be a popularity contest (as I am quite sure it will become)

I'm sorry but these threads don't make much sense to me

According to Florida Monthly it is a toss up between Islamorada (Monroe County) and High Springs (Alachua County) ~ High Springs Herald for friendliest small town.

I agree the Miami metro area is the most enjoyable area of Florida.

Sane here. Among the many problems, they seem to ignore that cities are made up of a collection of individuals, and all those individuals have unique personalities. It's not like we're in a Stepford Wives/Invasion of the Body Snatchers/etc. film.

Couldn't have said it better, myself. Plus we all have different experiences and therefore have a different frame of reference so answers about places will never be consistent.

I would have to vote for Jacksonville Florida. Very friendly, warm, welcoming, and helpful people. I love the "Bold New City of the South".

There's nothing wrong with wanting to know what areas are friendly. I think it's a very valid question.

There's nothing wrong with wanting to know anything, including how many angels can fit on the head of a pin. It's just that sometimes what we want to know isn't something we can know, and we often have to make adjustments in the questions we're asking if we want to produce answers that are not simply arbitrary.
