Re: Living in Florida

It's hard after living in the Key's to live anywhere else in Fla. It depends on what you do for work. You can get a house on a canal on some of the smaller lesser known key's, like Big Coppit, and work in Key West. You may have to switch to a service industry job, but a good work ethic goes a long long way down here, as a lot of people suffer from keys disease. A lot of people live in Key Largo and commute to Miami as well. You may be surprised how cold Fla. is in the winter as far north as Tampa. It's certainly mild, but cold by my standards. Ft. Meyers and Cape Coral are ok, but buggy in the suburbs. We have the bugs under control in Key West. Coconut Grove is nice, south Miami is pretty good, near Black Point Marina is a decent area. Hollywood is a great little town as well. Just my 2 cents.
