I lived in South Florida from teens-20s, moved out of state due to job reasons, and moved back here in my 30s but decided to live in Tampa vs South Florida because I feel it is more family-oriented (I have kids this time around). I always wanted to move back to Florida and even though I am living in a new city of Florida, I love it. Tampa is great and I am happy here!

I like what one of the other posters said... you have to think about WHY you left in the first place. So long as you are moving back for a good reason, and not with the "grass is greener on the other side" mentality, you should be fine.

Hendersonville has a great downtown. We loved that part of it.

I checked out Hendersonville - a little too far north for my blood, especially during winters. I think I need 40-60s temps during winter months. SC might do.

We have been smart enough not to move away from here after arriving.

It took us a long time to get used to living here. As most people told us give it time. It has worked out well for us. Enjoying it every day.

If I moved away it would be only because of us not having any close family members anywhere close.

Cannot think of any reason to move other then the family issue or the crime continues to rise like it has.
