HI vero here

Hope everyone is well. I would like to appreciate your time in reviewing my request. I live in miami, florida, is not all beachy and cool people. work is very competitive,floridians and the removed - inappropriate comment that's not necessary.

I am seeking a place to relocate a change of scenery, maybe something with nice friendly people, job stability, a decent cost of living and weather like florida. I would like your honest opinion.

I was advise about AZ and las vegas. Heard is dead city away for sincity and inner vegas. Your opinion matters anyone out there tell me about phoenix arizona. I don't want to make a wrong turn and end up in a worse place to live. Do AZ have green grass I hope you have some ideas, earthquakes can;t go to california and neither heavy sbow. My hubie stated i won't be shoveling snow

thks happy new year 2012 wishes well and healthy living

You will not find "weather like Florida" in Phoenix or Las Vegas. We are in the desert here. Summer will be hotter but far less humid. Winter in general a few degrees cooler usually, but nothing close to arctic lol-just a light sweatrr kinda weather midday for the most part. Las Vegas is a few degrees cooler than Phoenix in winter, and can get windy. While the area is actually one of the "greenest deserts"...it is not like Florida. There is some grass-where it is artificially irrigated. It can go many many weeks without rain in the desert.

In both Phoenix and Las Vegas, once you get out of the main metro area, there are places where there aee literally miles of...absolutely nothing lol.

I have a friend who lives in Boca Raton, and I have been to Florida many many times...and I would pick Phoenix in a heartbeat over SE Florida.

Check out Tucson instead of Phoenix. Tucson is less crowded/congested and absolutely beautiful.
Tucson, Arizona - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

If you're having trouble finding a job in Florida, it's not going to be any easier in AZ or LV. Do yourselves a huge favor and don't relocate without securing a job FIRST. And rent for 12+ months before you buy.
