Than you, all for all of these great suggestions.
In some ways, I'm leaning toward the west coast
because I feel like experiencing something new might be a good idea.
I've spent a lot of time in Miami
and this part of Florida already.
The people on the other side are typically nicer and more friendly too.
Tampa is a great little city that has all sorts of things from the requirements list and what I've found to be friendly people. Unfortunately, I was stuck in a very rural area for the build, so I do need to be near civilization.
The thread did just what I was hoping. Now, I need to try to figure out the best options. Not at all easy.
