And some level of people under 30 would be a requirement as well.

Any thoughts or am I asking for too much?
Appalachicola, Fl. Its small though and night life would consist of rodents coming out after sundown ! ...lol....

A couple years back, Apalachicola got discovered the the Tallahassee bed and breakfast set, who drove housing costs there up because they could afford to pay a fair amount for a nice little weekend place at the beach. $100K there doesn't get you something habitable. Maybe you could find something in Carabelle that's not falling apart in that price range, but Carabelle's so small that Apalach counts as 'big city'.

There are plenty of them available in Port. St. Lucie area, go on MLS (realtor.com), it will make your head spin, bet you could get incredible deal in that area.

I once spent Christmas on the beach in Pensacola and temperatures were in the 40s - too cold for me.

Not to mention half the population of Atlanta.
It's too bad, but I guess that's the way it goes with the free market system.
I've seen it in Colorado, I've seen it here.

Riley, there has been discussion about a possible Panhandle subforum but right now you just have to do a search.

Thumbs up Yes

Fernandina Beach! Great beachs, affordable homes( off Amelia Island.)
great Historic Downtown, state parks, small town feel, cooler winters which is a nice break. Close to Jacksonville.

I know, I have been watching that area for a while and I think they seem to have the best deals going in the state. Also, you really need to get about that far south, kind of cental Florida and south to have the best temps during the winter months, I have lived in the panhandle and it gets cold in the winter!
