Fair enough.TigOlBitties said:Everyone has their preferences, but if I'm going to deal with all of that city shit, it won't be on a tiny, isolated and overrated (again, my opinion) island in the middle of the ocean. At least on the continental US, there is room to breathe if you want. The rest of Hawaii is much more like what people are envisioning when they picture a tropical paradise.
I brought up the shitty people in Oahu because many people think the natives in Hawaii are happy and pleasant to be around all the time. A lot of them are like that, and I enjoyed meeting them. But there are a lot of shitty Hawaiians too. I want to point this stuff out so people have realistic expectations if they decide to live there.
If you are a conservative, older Bostonian, I'd look at Southwest Florida. Florida has DeSantis at the helm and you'll be surrounded by others in your same boat (conservative older Yankees looking for warm weather) in places like Fort Myers and St. Petersburg.Deepdiver said:I am becoming more of a snowbird - New England Coastal areas in summer are quite nice and prosperous then various Florida and Caribbean islands after hurricane season.
I used to love California - lived and worked there when I was young - but now it is a mismanaged Socialist hell hole rated the worst place in the entire world to do business by Nomad Capitalist - the socialist California state government with massive gimmegrant giveaways and third world homelessness devolving into ancient Bubonic plague-like health conditions makes New England a 4 Seasons paradise by comparison... the cold winters cull out most of the West Coast problems.
One location on my Florida bucket list is JetBlue Park:Hypno said:This is a gross generalization but the east coast of Florida has mostly people from the East Coast. West coast of Florida has mostly people from the midwest. You are more likely to meet retired Chicagoans than Bostonians.
Also, the West Coast of Florida south of St. Pete is nice but slow. If you are over 50 you might like it.
