Need advice about Florida
After living in Calif, for 53 years. I have finally had it with the politics of this state.
I’m 76, single straight male and living in Silicon Valley (San Jose) among mostly young and wealthy tech and social media workers. I’m neither young nor wealthy. As most of you have heard, many other folks are leaving here and other states with the same politics, and heading for Texas and Florida and a few others.
I was stationed in Tampa and Ft Walton in the mid ‘60s and loved it. I am strongly considering Sarasota, Fl. I took several exploratory visits there recently and liked it.
So I would like to hear from others in Florida who have made the transition to Florida. How long have you been there, has it been better or worse than you expected, have you found a good social life with other seniors, what’s the best and worst things you have discovered, and any other advice from your experience.
This is of course a BIG step, and probably non reversible. And I must either make it quickly while my health is still fairly good, or I may not be able to in the future.
I am comfortable but unhappy. Any words of caution or encouragement would be appreciated.
