I have had a numerous amount of questions regarding the Florida lifestyle, forgive my delay in responding to YOU! I read email daily but I can not always answer right away. The best way is to post here for you to read and if others have similar questions. I am delighted always to share this wonderful State of Florida with you both at home here in USA and Abroad. Since I was raised on the Atlantic Seaboard (Coastal) I can share that with you. Although, I have traveled the State extensively, to me living inland (or away from the beach is not for me!). It is very hot and humid inland more so than on or near the Ocean or Gulf. There is the West Coast of Florida on the Gulf of Mexico, there are lakes as well. Most people who are homeowners have a pool. The best Cooling systems available. Most also own a boat because of the proximity to the Intracoastal Waterway a 3,000 mile stretch. If boating, water sports, swimming, 11 months of warm weather does not appeal to you, then the Florida lifestyle is not for you! This lifestyle is not for everyone but I will say that the State has grown in population in leaps and bounds over 19.2 million! State statistics evaluate 1,000 people move in or out of Florida weekly. So, in conclusion many people love the lifestyle, relocate from all over to enjoy all that Florida lifestyle offers. Others return to their home State/Country.
I have traveled to almost every Northeastern State, many are breathtakingly beautiful in their own way. For me Florida is home now and always. I hope this gives you some insight to the lifestyle and answers many of your email questions.
In closing I wish you Good Health. Cheryl “Cheffie Cooks” Wiser. See YOU! Keep those emails coming I love hearing from YOU!
