If you could move to any small town in Florida (less than 100,000 people), and you didn't have to work, where would that be? If you don't mind, state your age and gender in your reply.

I don't believe that 100K is a small town, but you dictate the rules.

Saint Augustine is a great choice, age 45, male.
The town is great, you could do anything you want or just watch people.. The nations oldest city can be consider a "paradise".

Goodness, you did your homework! Thank you!! Maybe 100,000 is too big. I'm thinking the size of, let's say, Sanford, Deland, Mount Dora, you know, someplace with a real main street and people know each other for the most part. Any opinions on that size?

I vote for Mt Dora. It is a charming town on the shore of Lake Eustis.

I liked Arcadia, but have not been there for a while. For all I know it's turned into yuppie hell of the hurricane destroyed it in 2004.

I would chose Saint Cloud, Fl.

I'm a 30 year old female, married with 3 kids.

Call me if you want and we can talk.

I vote for Mt. Dora! (Although I should tell everybody that it's the worst place in the world to live - I don't want it to change, and I want to live there someday)

Check out Venice, Florida...very quaint little place which I think still has a small town feel..beautiful area and not yet as overpriced as say Ft. Myers/Cape Coral farther south.
