How so? Plus Florida has a very active retiree population anyway so I don't know on what basis you'd want to exclude them from the stats.

And look at the map that accompanies this article if you think Florida isn't Southern: There Have Been 132 Pro-Confederate Flag Rallies Since The Charleston Shooting

Since the massacre in Charleston, there have been more pro-Confederate flag rallies in Florida than in Louisiana, Mississippi, and South Carolina combined.

I will have to say that florida attracts a much scarier type of redneck, the biker types , than alot of the southeastern states like north carolina/virginia/ parts of southern maryland. driving through small town florida at night is always a strange experience for me

Perhaps in some alternative fantasy world. I don't believe that you've ever been to Atlanta.

Happiness is almost totally up to you...it's sad that you lived in a city as friendly and vibrant as Atlanta and STILL couldn't find it. Look within and stop blaming everything around you.

Atlanta is consistently listed as one of the top fittest cities in the nation...and the gay population undoubtedly leads the way in this category. You're just grasping at straws at this point. Maybe you accidentally wandered into Chubby Chasers on Crescent? (there aren't any gay spots on that street that I know of anyway).

I don't believe it either at this point. It's just some crazy vendetta...I always have to question the mental state of anyone with such an obsession. Thank God people like this leave and never come back, but there are very few people that actually move to Atlanta and dislike it.

This just represents one less hateful person in my city.

Hey all,
Sorry for the delayed reply, didn't get time to properly catch up on all this until now. A lot of new comments I see!

Thanks for the inputs and opinions, I appreciate them whichever side of the fence you're on as it gives perspective. The northern (geographically) parts of Florida do seem to be considered quite southern, certainly southern enough to be considered "The South", and I like that. The lifestyle, work opportunities, taxes etc all seem attractive there and northeastern Florida in particular, so it's still right up at the top of the list when it comes to where I'd like to move. I just need to research into specific towns and communities

@Happiness-is-close I appreciate you taking the time to give your input, however your opinion was quite clear in your first comment and hence everything after that was just senseless arguing and hateful comments. Again, thanks for the input but I'd appreciate if you would refrain from commenting on my post again as it is not informative nor helpful.

Thanks to those (particularly newbern100) who attempted to steer this thread back on course with informative opinions on specific areas, I'll be sure to look into them.

So again, thanks for the help folks, the vast majority of you have been of good help, much appreciated

what a leap! i'm pretty sure if the guy is checking into it, he knows what he needs to do..it's not like he's just running across the border.

And to the op, i would check out savannah...i LOVE savannah (if it was me!)

To nightlysparrow; I believe when coming to the US they just want to make sure you have a job to support yourself. At least before Obama's ruleing.
As for breeze823; I agree, both Savannah or Charleston would be a good fit since they both have a bit of European flair.
