Default moving to fla.

I'm thinking of moving to Florida. I live in New Jersey now. I'm a blue collar guy. I have been an auto painter most of my life, now I'm a service adviser. My wife also works in a car dealer as a internet sales manager. We have 2 young children under 8 years old. I love boating and motocross. We like the burbs. With that said what would be a nice area to look at in Florida?

The further north you go the cheaper the real estate and to some the better quality of life, less crime/ traffic.

Today it was in the 80's, not bad the week before Christmas.
Cool webcam of the Jupiter Inlet.

Hey Jack, where abouts in Jupiter are you?

I just moved down here from Jersey. I moved from Belmar to Jacksonville, and am still getting used to it. Hung my Christmas lights in my shorts though. Real estate runs the gamut. No state income taxes and lower property taxes than Jersey make it nice. It'll be really nice when i sell my place up north, and get a nice house where i can keep the Donzi. Anyone want to by a beachfront condo in NJ ??

I really enjoy the Tampa area. If I did not have to fly somewhere every week for my job I would either live just south of Tampa in the Bradenton area near the water or up near the Tarpon Springs/New Port Richey area.
I also really like the Ft. Myers and surrounding areas. Another good choice is the Jupiter area and surrounding coastal city's.
