    I would say it depends on you price range and what you have in mind. Im in Miami and what you can buy here might be half of what you can buy for the same price somewhere else. All depends on price and wants.

    I was thinking on the Atlantic side (West Palm Beach to Key Largo) but how is the Gulf Side (Tampa to Naples)?

    Where is the best beaches? And access to the best gun stores..
    Best beaches are definitely on the Gulf side. Warmer water too. If it were me, I'd start there......maybe Sarasota.

Could be a happy medium...close to the major theme parks, but I don't think too close, and almost smack in the middle of the state, where it's a fairly short drive to either coast.

    It was a ranking of communities under 50,000 population. Lake Mary finished 3d or 4th. I actually live in Lake Mary. Great community, but alas, no ocean.....

    If your avatar is really you, I think people are going to be friendly to you no matter where you are.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    There, put my picture up as my avatar :)

    Only ever been to Stockton, CA. CA in general is too bloody expensive. Firearm laws are too bloody silly.

    'Governator' items for sale in the Sacramento airport gift shops are funny, though.

    Didn't read the last 5-pages, so not sure if brought up. Florida is VERY unfriendly to new homeowners! The tax laws are archaic and designed to protect retirees and low income folks that have been lived there for years. I moved here 2-yrs ago and have been royally screwed by real estate taxes and insurance rates.

    I'm paying 2-3 times what my neighbors are in RE taxes, and the houses here are less than 10-yrs old! You pay taxes on what you bought the house for, not the continually re-appraised value like most areas. The system screws the most recent buyer, and now by law, only new buyers who are from out of state or buying their first house!

    Insurance rates, car and RE, are 2-3 times what I paid in the Chicago area. Start reading FARK.com. Florida has it's own tag because there are so many idiots down here making news. Only State with it's own tag! Only thing I can say is it's got good gun laws, and is a "relatively" nice place to visit, but wouldn't want to live there!

    Texas may not be as screwed up as FL and CA on property taxes, but they are still very high.

    Unfortunately, I don't know much about property taxes. I do know that it is all going to depend on what part of each state you're looking to settle. Dallas would tend to be more expensive than, say, San Antonio.

    Likewise, my area is considerably cheaper than the W.P.B. area.

    Yeah, there are SOME temptations us crackers just may not be able to resist. After all, if it is tourist season why CAN'T we shoot them???

    Enough with the FL jokes. Us natives are tired of hearing about FL drivers. It ain't us. It's all them white-legged Yanke..., er snowbirds, like RetSup coming down and driving slow.

    As for voting, true Floridians can vote. Not like the political parties ever put up a candy-date worth voting for.

    Traffic is terrible. In Miami you better be able to speak Spanish, because few there will understand you if you don't (Miggy will probably flame me for this). Crime sucks.

    Besides, you're really close for when Raul decides to invade the U.S.

    Yes, there is a limit. The size of your wallet and your gun safe... in that order.
