Thanks everyone for all of this great info! We are arriving in a few days and have a few houses picked out to look at with our realtor. (thanks Troy!) We have traveled the globe extensively and are pretty tuned into what we want. I've read through these forums a lot and feel like at this point nothing will tell the tale until we actually get there.

Our biggest desire in a place to live is warm water year round which So Cal does not have any day of the year! Plus it would be nice to have air to breathe that we cannot see! LOL. A lot of folks love it here, but the traffic has gotten so ridiculous that we can only manage to drive to the beach about 10 times a year and that has to be an exercise in military logistics to avoid the horrid traffic jams. (What should take about 25 minutes can take 2 hours!) But there's plenty of people who love it here. I don't want to bash LA, I think it just isn't for us anymore.

We are checking out homes in Lake Worth, Chapel Hill, Boynton Beach and East Delray Beach. Based on my friend's opinion who lives there, he thinks we'll dig at least one of those areas. So thank you so very very much for all of the input. It has been an incredible help!

Good luck with the hunt. I think I recall you are staying in Delray so that should give you a good feel of that area especially. Remember that each of the listed there are good and bad parts. I do agree that LA traffic is unreal and if there is an accident forget about it. There are many parts of California though I miss. There is no perfect though and in my eyes it is about the best in the situation. Keep us updated.

Okay. We are closing on our house in Chapel Hill. Getting there slowly slowly! Should be moving out to Florida by mid November. (oh... Chapel Hill is an area in South Boynton Beach east of I95. )

Thanks for all the great input! We're excited! Can't wait to swim in the lovely warm water there. Woohoo!
