I love it, I'd honestly hate to be in Florida. Give me a pair of mid-fats, a snowy mountain, and bluebird skies and I'm in heaven.Although my work schedule is packed, the anticipation of skiing keeps me amped up in the wintertime.
My dream location is the suburbs Tampa, FL. Trinity or something. The real estate there is crazy too. Take a $500K here in MA and put it in that area and we're talking $150K. It's nuts...

Storm over...a tornado in St. Pete, and one in Hudson (north and south of us) but it wasn't so bad in Clearwater...not even that much lightening, just rain.Trinity is about half an hour north of Clearwater, between US 19 and US 75...actually when we go north (we usually drive) we go that way and cut off Tampa and its traffic. I love the Clearwater area, it has a lot to offer and is only two hours from Orlando, half an hour from Tampa and the airport. The Gulf of Mexico is not the Atlantic ocean...I miss the sea turns and smell of the Atlantic...but like Bahku has said, we have beautiful white powder beaches in Pinellas County...some of the prettiest in the world. The restaurants and grocery stores are really good. This is not so much "old" Florida any more. The taxes are low, the services are good, the roads are good, and the living is easy. I am from New England, and I find it much easier to make friends down here...to say nothing of all your friends who are also moving down. And...if you need to get home (north) we have a terrific airport (TIA) or an easy 3 day drive up US 95 or US 81.Real Estate prices here are probably the lowest they have been in 25 years...some say it will stay that way, but I don't believe it...the severity of winters up north and the amount of baby boomers retiring are bound to make them go up again, IMO.
