Much discussion is made of the "transient nature" of the residents of Tampa.
What is the explanation behind this?

I attribute it my observation that when it comes to FL, people either love it or hate it...there's rarely any in between, so the haters are going to bail first chance they get. Now if your referring to homeless/street people there are no shortage of them here and that could be caused by the climate, easy drinking money for the day via day labor or panhandling and also what I believe to be light sentences for vagrant type crimes like public intox, disorderly conduct, trespassing, etc. They generally get wrist-slapped, spend the night in jail, time-served and are right back on the street quickly.

Agree w/ SGT Buzz-
When I think transient, I think of the snowbirders, the tourists, immigrant workers (we have millions), the people who move here without the thought of staying her for a lifetime. I think of the people who come down here because of no state taxes, the cheaper real estate, or looking for work. If you ask many people here, most have come from another state to FLA. If you go to Ohio, NY, Illinois, Indiana - most are from those states and have been there for a long, long time, if not all their lives. There seems to be a lot of people coming into and leaving the state (transient).

the weather. palm trees. sun. those are the main draws to tampa.

many cities are transient these days for one reason or another, thanks to a "shrinking" world and relative ease of uprooting compared to, say, 50 years ago.
