Actually, no, I don't see how it benefits me or mine. Taxes still go up to fund infrastructure. Roads are more crowded. Restaurants are more crowded. Medical appointments are harder to get and wait times are longer. I still have to be on uber high alert to keep from being splattered by the blue hairs. If you can figure how it helps, please share. If Fla was so great, I wouldn't be initiating my exit plan. Maybe the benefit will be higher housing prices so I sell at a larger profit.

At least I can take some small degree of pleasure in the summer when I drive my RV like a slow poke in their states.

Ga-ther-ing! Ga-ther-ing!

I grew up in Florida. Key West, Orlando, Pensacola. Love the white sand and blue ocean.

I don't think I can attempt to explain the complexities of the economic factors involved in people bringing money fro up north down to FLA and spending it there.
I would not sing the praise of FLA however and would migrate out as well if I lived there, I also would not heap such a huge amount of negativity upon the place either. It's not CT and that is great.
