With all due respect and correct me if I'm wrong but Loveland is about 25 square miles versus Jacksonville at 875 square miles. This puts the population density of Loveland at 2,000+ per square mile vs Jacksonville at 1,100 per square mile. I realize there are other factors involved in gauging quality of life but just wanted to point out the facts with respect to how populated a given area is.

Winter is just part of living there, as is high humidity, tropical storms with the possibility of a major hurricane. There are lots of people who live in snow area’s all over the U.S., some complain about the winters, some don’t.
You probably need to go back for a trip to Loveland. The dispensaries are everywhere.

We will be visiting this summer. There and into Cheyenne, Wyoming for the rodeo.

Actually, we don't care about the dispensaries. Have had several people, who live there, young and old, tell us "if you aren't looking to get "high" or smoke, you'll never smell the stuff or see people smoking it. Just remember, Loveland is not Denver or that area." Almost to the word of what they told me.

Anyway, we aren't totally sold on moving there and this upcoming trip will help for us to figure that out. Cheyenne could definitely be our place. Don't know yet.

But, basically speaking...........anywhere in the mid-West is for us, not here.

My wife pointed that out to me, but, in having the local news app for Loveland, there is much less traffic and, the one thing we really want more of...........much less crime.

Mountains, lakes, rodeo's, Elk are our thing, not what's here. IOW, like I've already stated a number of times.............we made a mistake moving here.

Snowbirds are always in season, it's just illegal to use bait June-September.

Yep, that can’t happen soon enough for me. JAX and Florida, nice places, but not made for everyone.
