Not even close. It's very conservative here, no big parks, the water is usually brown and mucky, traffic is a ****** for an area with really nothing to offer, we have no public transportation besides a horrid little bus and to top it off people around here are faker than an OC Housewife.

If you find any good suggestions, ethan, please let me know as well! Right now South Florida is calling my name.

Default Close to the ocean.

I like this thread. I've had this tought many times as an odeal location.
The answers I'm seeing seem to be missing one very important point.
Tallahasse is not near the ocean, or the golf to be more specific. The
N.J. hot spots are way off course to meet that criteria. I have 2 locations
in mind that may meet a number of these listed wish list points.
Brunswick North Caroina. Near the shore, small town, near major attractions
and a real smalltown shopping district with old fashion post office, shops,
restaurants, and antique stores. It'ds also minutes from Myrtle Beach. Fort Pierce Fl. is still not overdeveloped. It's right on the ocean, small town, with restaurans, small town feel, beautiful beach, affordable yet near enough to Orlando and West Palm Bach.

How about these cities on the west coast:

Portland OR
Seattle WA
Santa Rosa CA
Santa Barbra CA
San Diego CA

even, Victoria in Canada

to me, it seems they have the requirements I mentioned in my first post

Yeah, the big question is does it need to be warm? Or just not cold? Because Seattle, Porltand, San Francisco, and some others would work.

Default Mount Dora, FL

Mount Dora, Fl is 30 miles from Orlando; 30-40 miles from Atlantic and although probably considered 'conservative', it also is always loved by people from New England because it reminds them of 'back home'.

We are looking for the same kind of area. We live on the MS Gulf Coast. It is beautiful, warm weather. The problem is very conservative to the point of being verbally attacked for suggesting anything progressive.
