Florida is a very good state to retire in; sorry you had a bad experience in St Petersburg, which is pretty inexpensive to live in, compared to Miami. Buy locally grown tomatoes and other produce at produce stands and farmer's markets; the orange flavorless tomatoes in the stores come from Mexico and are dusted in DDT. Florida has 1, 000,000 farms and the produce can be excellent. FL has NO state income tax! The avg wage for low-skill jobs is low here because we have a lot of elderly people who have to work or want to work and a lot of teenagers willing to work. We have a lot of golf course and beaches and lakes and parks. We get a lot of homeless from NY, PA and NJ every winter, but they head back up north staring in May. Yes, it is humid here, but we are never too far from a beach or a lake.
All bastions of liberalism so whats that tell you.
Its ruining the whole country at this point!
Another minus for the San Diego area is the traffic. The days of leisurely drives along the ocean are long gone.
San Diego County looks big on a map, but the vast majority of the county is federal or state land. The areas where people live are densely populated so expect traffic, lines and congestion about everywhere you go.
Air quality can also be a problem, especially a few miles inland from the coast.
Moved out 20 years ago before it got really bad!
