I was born in Europe but I currently live in Texas, and I can't live here any longer because I hate having to druve 5 hours to a beach I don't even like (I live in the Dallas area and I don't find Galveston interesting). I've always wanted to live in Florida because of what I've heard about it and I've decided that I want to move there. Of course before I make the final decision I'm gonna have to visit the different areas but I think Palm Beach County is exactly where I want to move. It sounds fun and relaxing at the same time and like a perfect place to raise a family. Am I wrong about this? Furthermore, I'd like to know if people tend to be more liberal or more conservative there and if it's a friendly community where there's a lot to do with kids. I'm a doctor and I'd like to know about the job market and the commutes... I want to live near the beach. Any idea of the place that would suit me the most? Thanks for reading!

Don't ever move anywhere without spending significant time there first.
Best of luck!

Medical is big here, lot's of baby boomers and seniors that require health care. They just built a new hospital on 441 and Boynton Beach Blvd., more medical complexes and etc are going in around it.

Bethesda Hospital West | Bethesda Hospital East

I would say a move here for you would be good, career wise if you are a Medical Doctor.

I would suggest Boca Raton if your a Plastic Surgeon as a start.

Welcome doc. Many Florida beaches are quite nice. And, I assure you will find many-many very nice communities close to the beach to choose from. Once you visit, you will know what PBC has to offer to you and your family.

It sounds fun and relaxing at the same time and like a perfect place to raise a family. Am I wrong about this?

Do you really believe there is such a thing as 'a perfect place' to raise a family anywhere..?

PS: No doubt you know that it could take 3-6 months just to get a license to practice in Florida (unless you plan to apply at the VA hospital).

Talking Resume!!!!

I'm not sure if they are doing it anymore......but a friend of mine was an X-Ray technition and he mailed out resume's to several hospitals in the area he was considering moving to...2 of them flew him and his wife down for a weekend for interviews and several offered him a move down bonus......

My daughter and 3 of her friends graduated nursing school many years ago and went down to Fort Lauderdale for their self imposed graduation gift......only 2 came back...they interviewed at local hospitals and all 4 were offered jobs...

If I was you...I would start mailing out resumes for area's you are interested in and see if anyone offers you a free weekend/week down...you have nothing to loose and you might end up with a job offer before you take the plunge...

Doctor? The world is at your feet in Palm Beach County.

Palm Beach County has a wide variety of lifestyles, and plenty of nice places to raise a family. If the beach is your thing stick to the coastal cities. If you move, why not rent for a year or so somewhere and take your time to explore where you'd want to put down roots (if you don't have kids).

If you do have kids, plenty of threads on the good places to raise a family.
