I am a proud 3rd generation Floridian! We aren't just old people and theme park workers.

This is an assumption that others find stimulation/boredom in the same things as you. The truth is there are some people who absolutely loathe the population density and lushness of NJ and would much prefer to be alone on the semi-arid plains of middle America or in the desert of the American south-west.

There seems to be colonies of people from New Jersey everywhere which leads to believe there has been a mass exodus of natives from the state. It's not really the weather that's driving people away. The cost of living and taxes are very high and the cities are slums apart from Hoboken and waterfront Jersey City.

Also New Jersey does not have bad weather unless you're comparing it to San Diego.

I'm well-aware of that. Many of you are pushy real estate agents too.
