My boyfriend and I are thinking about moving to Florida after I graduate college. I will have a degree in Hospitality management and he is a CNA, we have vacationed in Sarasota and in the keys and loved it. We liked Sarasota and are wondering what area would be nice to live in. We want somewhere that isn't hicky, and where the people are nice, and crime is low. Also Gay firendly would be GREAT! Any tips or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

You will get some answers but the gay question cames up a lot and a search should give you a lot to read. Excues me for asking, but is the gay thing really an issue in this day and age?

Well I'm from the Northern U.S so I guess maybe I'm just paranoid about the south. :P

I lived in both those areas and I'd say based on your description of what you want, you'ed be better off in the Keys. Gay friendndly is not a thing for the Sarasota area, pardon me but its pretty hicky. Its more expensive here in the Keys but it has alot more to offer for the Hospitality and CNA fields, my wife works as a CNA and make at least double what she could make in the Sarasota area, and its more accepting to who you are in the Keys IMO. Lots of luck.

Wondering about the term "hicky?" That is not usually a term I see applied to Floridians. At any rate I lived in Sarasota for 17 years, don't like it myself for personal reasons which I won't go into here, but there are LOTS of gays living there, lots. I would call it a VERY gay-friendly town. And you would have no problem getting jobs there with your professions. Good luck.
