Actually, I can't think of any place to live in America except maybe for Miami or some other place with good sun and nice ocean beaches. If I could move away, I would do so in a heartbeat. <p>--<br>CyberChrist<br>http://www.hackerjournal.org<br>My brain is hung like a horse.</p><i></i>

coastal life in florida

Postby nashvillebrook » Fri Apr 14, 2006 10:40 am

cyberchrist mentions wanting to live in coastal florida, like miami. since i grew up on the florida coast i thought i'd switch roles from asking the question to providing some info...<br><br>my family going back 4 generations was native to florida. i've posted before on the downsides to living in florida (military, lack of cuture), but there are wonderful things about florida for anyone dreaming of that move. here's some of my favorite things about coastal florida...<br><br>rain -- you get a lot of rain, but the sun comes right back out. storms are wonderful to watch as long as they aren't hurricanes. the rain keeps everything tropical and lush. <br><br>wildlife -- you live with the animals when you live in florida and many of them will kill you if given half a chance. i find that totally cool. alligators, snakes, scorpions, and marine life endowed with poisonous defense mechanisms all serve to remind you that nature isn't a total pushover. on the gentle side of wildlife you have dolphin, manatee, the occasional whale and incredible bird action. you haven't lived until you wake to see an Ibis rooting around in your front yard. it's like travelling backward in time.<br><br>climate -- when you are on the coast, it's a lot cooler than on the mainland and you have a breeze. <br><br>recreation -- yeah, beaches are nice and florida beaches are very nice (speaking for the east coast south of daytona). most people go to the florida coast for the beach. but here's a secret: it gets old fast. waves come in. waves go out. you'll want something to DO on the beach. that's where surfing, fishing and boating come in. <br><br>coastal life is really different than land-living. so here's my big caveat -- if you're not yet retired or independently wealthy, it's not easy to live on the coast. you will be going to work everyday with every cell in your body demanding that you play hooky. if you have kids -- apply this wisdom to their perspective. no one wants to be in class when the waves are good. <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :) --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <p></p><i></i>
