Ok fellow CDers!
I will provide the details, you name the place!

A city with population < 50,000 people.

A city with no snow. (or barely a dusting once in a blue moon)

A city with some jobs!

A city that is the epitome of pure old fashioned southern hospiality. We're talking waving, sweet tea, lending a hand - but not all in your business!!!

Go!

Oxford, MS, home of Old Miss. It has everything that you would expect in a small Southern town...beautiful old neighborhoods, charming courthouse square and an unfailingly polite local populace. Add to that the presence of the University of Mississippi and a longstanding literary tradition. One of my favorite places in the South.

Wow...you make a post in the middle of the night and wait two whole hours and wonder why no one's responded???

You need to slow down if you want to live in the south.

The job situation is the same all over the country so you're guess is good as any to where the jobs are.

Southern Hospitality is just about gone from Florida...still some in the panhandle. I'm a big fan of Alabama...Huntsville might be a good fit for you.

hey OP. Long time no see!.

If I recall you worked in Aventura/hospitality industry?. You could try Asheville NC (not much snow, 3 months winter at most but mild) or Wilmington NC, by the ocean.

Are you still in Florida?.
