Avoid Florida like the plague if you hate sun, beach, outdoor activities like tennis,fishing, outdoor shuffleboard, frisbee, hoops, affordable housing, cheap stiff drinks, kitsch, great estate sales,cheap stuff, seafood and good produce. If you are pretty self-sufficient, married, secure in a slow pace of life and like all of the above, certain parts of Florida are pretty great. Notice, I said "certain parts".
If all that is important to you at this stage in life is being around a lot of really cool people or a "scene", being able to buy some expensive and really cool stuff easily (or at least look at a lot of expensive cool stuff you may not be able to always afford) and a unreproachable music scene...choose somewhere else for sure.
