Ne Fl

I moved to NE FL (almost to Ga) from South FL....only about 3 days to freezing last year and about the same this yr. Orlando south is PRIMO weather. Ft Laud south is semi tropical.
Good luck, you will like FL.

Orlando? Disney must have wanted a year round location.

Rich loves it in Tampa, like about a million others. I lived in Lakeland for 3 years and there isn't enough money in the world to make me move back there for the weather alone. Winters were fabulous (although Christmas just doesn't feel right), but summers were unbearable. It gets tiresome to be so hot 24/7 for months on end. It wasn't much fun to take the dogs out at 10PM and sweat standing in my yard without exerting myself. And if there's anything to global warming, there may be an exodus from the Sunshine State.

We're both right, so how can someone advise you?

Florida?Hope you like your heat with humidity,most of my family lives just north of Tampa and if i go visit between April to November its basically go from the air conditioned house to the air conditioned car to the air conditioned destination.
Best idea for Fla. is to get a house trailer in a secure community and just live in it from Nov to April then return north to your cottage in cooler climes

I'm personally not a big Florida fan but I lived in Pensacola for a couple of years. Hot, humid summers (I hate hot and humid!) but a nice break from that weather late fall through early spring. I could see spending part of the cooler part of the year there and then coming back to the Green Mountain State for summer through very late fall.
