Florida is shit. Who else thinks that it is a very overrated and shitty tourist place to go? Everyone is a degenerate and it feels like a 3rd world country at times
>>
sounds like the entire southeast to be completely real with you. i am from Maryland. i hate it but it's still home for now...
>>
>>1433059
i find that there are redeeming factors to other southeast states though.. I guess there is with FL too but its so popular and everyone is coming here in droves for some reason. The people are completely insane
>>
Lived there for 19 years, am never going back. There are nice states on the East Coast. Hiked from GA to WV on the AT and I met some incredible people in those places.
>>
People go for the weather and Disney World/other theme parks. That's it.
>>
Are these threads just a trick to get Florida locals to do damage control, and in the process reveal interesting, lesser-known things to see in the state?
>>
>>1433056
>Florida is shit. Who else thinks that it is a very overrated and shitty tourist place to go? Everyone is a degenerate and it feels like a 3rd world country at times.

Florida is clearly at least 6 different cultural zones or identities. To categorize it like you have only makes me doubt your worth or means. If you haven't experienced any fun in florida as a tourist....you are doing it wrong. Why are you doing it wrong? Ignorance or lack of funds. Maybe you don't even drive a car or have a good education. A state with so many top rated colleges has some intelligent people worth hanging out with or living near or partying with....but if you don't move in those circles, most places are downhill from there.
>>
>>1433056
As a Miami native, I recognize that Florida outside of the 305 is the deep south sprinkled with Latinos in Orlando and Tampa.

It's literally another country as far as I'm concerned
>>
>>1433161
you're full of shit
>>
>>1433157

It is, but Floridians know better than to take the bait.

904 reppin.

941 represent!
I fucking hate this place the rent is too high, the temperature is too high, the teenagers are too high, and the water level is too low. I'm moving North as soon as I can afford it and never looking back. Nice beaches.
>>
>>1433161
You're a fucking idiot
>>
>>1433204
Im 941 too mate.. Im OP and mostly made the thread about Lee and Charlotte co.. Is anywhere any better?
>>
Grew up in 239 and moved to Manhattan for a job

Don't want to go back but desu can't think of another place I'd rather live if I can't afford lower Manhattan

Fuck living in a high tax state without getting to live in one of the hottest neighborhoods of the capital of the world

When I have a family I want to live some place warm and comfy with low taxes and some gated community near ft Myers or Miami sounds reasonable

Just not fucking Naples where I grew up. Median age is what, 66? Fuck that
>>
>>1433211
If you like beaches and yuppies I'd recommend Sarasota/Siesta Key which is where I live. We and Bradenton have really good craft beer and rum (Siesta Key Rum is located mainland). A lot of good food too. We're probably and furthest from the 3rd world shithole you'll find out east but it's fucking pricy.
>>
>>1433332
Sarasota seems like a diamond in the rough.. I live nearby there and I do like it when I go there
>>
>>1433211
>Is anywhere any better?

Tampa is a good area if you're a hipster, especially the Ybor City neighborhood. I've seen anarchy flags displayed prominently there before.
>>
>>1433551
Fuck that noise, I had a friend shot and a cousin raped in Ybor, and I'm not even black. 727 represent
>>
>>1433552
It's a whole different place in the daytime. I've gone to ride the trolley with my kid multiple times in the afternoon and never had a problem. Never had a problem when I was younger going out for drinks either.
>>
>>1433551
Yeah Tampa (every large city has a dangerous side) and St Pete look better. Sarasota is nice
>>
Lived in weston for a while, too many spics.
>>
so many salty yankees and leafs ITT
get the fuck out of my state

>>1433157
I'll take the b8 m8

>>1433167
Everyone else hates Miami you're the worst part about the state.
>>
239 here. Moving to Colorado for a job. Any tips? I'm driving the 30 hours there.
>>
>be swiss
>go to the US for 3 months
>planned to cross from east to west
>love Florida so much
>stay there 2 months
>no time for almost anything else
>no regrets

I don't even know why, I think it was just the weather because it's always sunny and not too warm.
The lights are also incredible, like there's a lot of contrast, even during the night.
Fat and crazy people everywhere is a plus too.

I'lll go back in 2 years, 3 months to do Jacksonville > Houston and I hope it'll be enough.
>>
Palm Coast.. what a shit hole. Then again, ex was a fat shit hole and from Palm Coast
>>
>>1434833

Good luck being able to afford anything decent. Also, that drive is killer. I did a drive to Denver from Jacksonville (and back) a few years ago. Holy shit what a long time to be driving.

>>1434838

Jax > most cities in FL and Houston, yes
>>
>>1434852
JAX is that good? Only passed by on the way to Cape Coral but it looked cool
>>
>>1434852
I'm working one of the resorts and they provide food/lodging so it's not too bad. I'm making stops to visits friends so hopefully it wont ne too bad. The drive to Dallas will suck the most.
>>
>>1434839
Seems you have a thing for fat shitholes. Check yourself.
>>
>>1434904

Jax is my hometown, so I'm biased but it's a cool place. A bit spread out for most people but a nice place to live.
>>
>>1435342
yes its a huge land area but it did look like an interesting city. Pretty laid back compared to any other big FL city in the south of the state, but I never knew much about it
>>
>>1435506

Jacksonville is remarkably laid back compared to, say, Tampa or (god forbid) Orlando. It still has its problems but everyone gets along nicely for the most part
>>
>>1433130
>Brazilians go for the weather and Disney World/other theme parks. That's it.

Fixed
Orlando is a shithole
>>

Get this man more cock he's nearly empty

>Disney
>Gators
>Cringy old people
>Cubans everywhere
>>
>>1433056
Florida is far too big of a state for blanket statements like that. Vacation Keys, Club Miami, Theme Park Orlando, beach towns, college towns, rural towns, Jacksonville.
>>1435738
>Jacksonville is remarkably laid back
Ayyyy, I second that. Also I think the best skate city in the country.
Okay, I might be a bit bias.
>>
What's Tallahassee like?
>>
has anyone been to the everglades?
>>
>have to go to Titusville for work
>literally can't find a hotel within an hour that isn't a dump
>>
>>1435976
Too many bugs. The rednecks have huts on stilts out there where they drive their airboats around, which is pretty cool.
>>
>>1434838
>Swiss
>stayed 2 months

100 dollars said you stayed in Cape Coral or Fort Myers
>>
407 here born and raised.

Florida is basically a Party state like Las Vegas mostly Miami and Orlando and Tampa(Meh) Jacksonville is more laid back. If you want to party vacation and have fun (get laid) most girls in Florida are complete sluts compared to any other state then yeah you might want to come to Florida for vacation.

Tamiami Trail across the Everglades: Miccosukee Indian casino and reservation, Shark Valley where you get to bike and walk next to gators (who won't eat you), Big Cypress National Park for camping, and eating gator nuggets

Everglades: based
>>
>>1436247
They are currently working on a system that will connect all of the various bike trails in Central Florida so that you can ride your bike from the Gulf Coast to the Atlantic Coast. End points will be Pinellas County (west of Tampa) and Brevard County (where Cape Canaveral is).
>>
>>1436325
I-4 for bikes? sure why not

Daily reminder Florida is the boomer's idea of ideal tourism/vacation/retirement. Its a piece of shit place filled with boomers waiting to die, spics, and rich overly medicated dude weed college beach party faggots. The weather is fucking garbage 24/7 sun and humidity induced sweat, the rest is hurricanes. There is nothing here to see that you can't already do anywhere else. They'll just charge you more because boomers/faggots from the north flock to Florida expecting some tropical paradise. The only thing you should ever come here for is the theme parks. Don't fall for the "world's greatest beaches" meme. They're the same as any other beach. The beach lie is the oldest trick in the book to bait boomers into coming to Florida.

Boomers rabidly defending their retirement hellhole are pathetic.

>tfw living in 239 for 12 fucking years and am joining the military just to escape

This place is a fucking retirement paradise for the geriatrics but a prison for anyone young. The ONLY good thing about it is the taxes (no state tax fuck yeah) so while I get stationed in California, I will continue to pay Florida taxes

I envy you brother, I'm glad you got out of here, this place is where youth and virility die
>>
>>1433701
Miami is the only part of the state that's not filled with dumbass rednecks like yourself making it the best part of the state not the worst
>>
>>1437087
LOL can tell you're a liberal
>>
>>1437087
completely retarded assessment too. You've never been anywhere in FL. So you can't judge shit faggot
>>
>>1436765
As a native floridian, we love the hurricanes because they drive all the tourists away.
>>
>>1437157
>>1437158
Lol I'm in Miami right now and am conservative. Have you seen how the southerners live? It's pure white trash.
¡Cuba Libre!

HOW DO YOU KNOW

>>1433056
Anywhere that gets above 60° in the summer is shit
Anywhere that gets above 60° in the winter is hell

Don't move to FL unless you're ready to spend the rest a of your life doing nothing
>>
>>1436782

>implying everyone in FL is a boomer

27 y/o with two condos in 904 here.

Feels good, man
>>
>>1437087
You're right, it's instead filled with dumbass Hispanics and Haitians.
