.. getting back to the topic of how the OP can maximize a positive experience in the Philly metro given their present life in Florida will lengthen the life of this thread.

to OP,
uwill find great difficulty finding a Super Target in the northeast states. super target is mainly down south and west coast. ORLANDO HAS SO MANY!! and also the super walmarts like you mentioned

philly does not have any to my knowledge and if it does it is smaller than orlando.

plus pennsylvania and jersey have alcohol laws so there is the lack of that in stores as well as moving and alterations elsewhere throughout stores

Cherry Hill, NJ would suit you to a T. There's a nice Target, a great shopping mall, tons of shopping and restaurants of every type imaginable (and more are currently being built as we speak), short commute to Philadelphia (5 miles to Ben Franklin Bridge into Phila), variety of housing and apartments, middle class to upper middle class area, easy to get everywhere from Cherry Hill. Cherry Hill has great supermarkets...ShopRite & Wegman's and a 15 minute drive to Trader Joe's (Marlton, NJ).

The zip code 08002 is the part of Cherry Hill closest to Philadelphia and where all the best shopping is.

The downside...because of the above it's a very congested area and if you decided to buy a place here eventually, the property taxes are very high.

It would suit you to a T if your willing to pay double for a house that you would in Florida and at least tripple the property taxes you currently pay in Florida. Cherry Hill has some of the highest property taxes in the County and State !!!

Not everybody wants to live in the redneck paradise of Ocala Florida.

You seem fixated on commenting on Ocala, Florida even when its not part of the topic........my post only confirmed Sassygirls opinion that even for the State of New Jersey Cherry Hills taxes are outrageous and much higher than those you would generally find in Florida. Name calling for the sake of name calling only demonstrates the inability for one to comment articulately on the topic at hand.

You brought up that redneck town of Ocala in your first post. You pay for location, Cherry Hill has an excellent location and excellent schools with all the amenities of a major city nearby. Something that Ocala could not offer in a million years.

Ocala was merely used as a point of reference tax wise since the OP lives in Florida......you keep referring to it as a paradise which it is not.....nor is Cherry Hill despite its "location".......if you enjoy paying 10 times the average property taxes you would in Ocala then Cherry Hill is definitely for you. The point of the post was to inform the OP that the cost of living up here is much greater than that of Florida and he better be making almost twice what he makes in Florida to come out even or ahead in a move. I'm not sure how your continual labeling of people in Ocala, Florida as rednecks helps the OP at all ?

Yes, because Ocala is in the middle of nowhere. But your "10 times" is such an exaggeration that I will not respond. I am paying a small fraction more in taxes than I paid in Florida (Orlando). Yet I have amenities that I could not even dream about in Florida. I was born and raised in the NYC area and value the amenities and culture a large city provides. Your example of Ocala is a joke. You can not compare a small rural town to a major metro area.

My daughter and her husband pay $1500 in property taxes for a 3 bedroom, two bath, two car attached garage on a large lot with deck and outdoor jaccuzzi in a nice neighborhood in Ocala.......my guess is that 10 times more property taxes in Cherry Hill for the same property, or $15,000, isn't that far off. Please don't feel the need to respond.....based upon your past posts I suspect that I am the only one between the two of us who actually has any first hand experience with both towns to be able to comment accurately anyway. I'm sure you'll be very happy in your row home overlooking the polluted Cooper River. Since most of your posts involve rednecks you might want to try posting in the Gerogia, Alabama or other southern forums where rednecks truly abound and your lack of knowledge won't be noticed so much ?
