I sold my house in the Florida Keys and left Florida altogether. It's a terrible place to live. The buildings in the keys look like run down shacks. Most of the people outside the rich communities are immigrants and drug runners. The cops do nothing and the jails are disgusting. 15 or more people share a toliet in a single room and the cops only give so much toliet paper.. like 1/10 of 1 roll everytime.. Many of the women are forced to wait and stay on the toliet while the men law officers watch them. There is a lot of illegal police activity down there in the keys. A LOT. Also.. if you are caught with anything above i think 1.5 grams in florida (Marijuana) then you are a felony and you will never EVER find work that is legal. Elsewhere in Florida is filled with tourist trash, including the keys.. And the mainland is nearly like winter anywhere else except in the summer you DIE of heat as well. Screwed over on both seasons. Ocala is filled with red necks, but everything is cheap as hell. Henrico, VA is the best place to raise kids and live. I have done a lot of traveling in the US.. and of all the places I have been, from east to west coast.. I like California (other than the taxes, gross) and Virginia. Hawaii is awesome as well but expensive.
