What are some pros and cons of living in Florida vs. Pennsylvania?
I grew up in Maryland and recently moved to lower Delaware to escape the D.C. area's over-development. I'm thinking of heading somewhere warm for the winter and am researching Florida, particularly the West coast, where I hear there is a lot of nature and wildlife. I've visited Miami and , West Palm Beach, and Orlando, but never the gulf coast. As someone who used to live there, can you offer any advice?
Well I only lived there for a year when I was really young... I think I was four.
But from what I remember there were floods during hurricane seasons, lots of bugs and people always worried about kids going in water with alligators. I lived in Port St. Lucy which wasn't the most amazing area but it wouldn't be a horrible option to live down there.
But Port St. Lucy is on the East coast of Florida so I'm sure things are a bit different in the gulf coast. Either way it'd definitely be warmer, lots more to do and a whole new type of living to get use to. You'd probably still get hit with heavy rain but you can say goodbye to the snow .
I live on the west coast. Moved down from PA when I was a kidlet. No shoveling snow. Long sleeves in the winter, you can swim from may - sept. The gulf is beautiful and the beaches pristine and free. We don't have any pesky state taxes except for sales tax, you can buy wine and beer at the grocery stores, and the home and property taxes are low. It does get hot but that's why AC was invented. And you can grill 365! However, spring and fall is terrific and I throw my windows open.
