Hello from Miami

Hi to all

without getting into the cost issue, I would suggest asking yourselves what area would you like to live in.. not necessarily a specific name or geography, but rather a list of things you like and dislike..

noise, pollution, traffic, crowds, climate, etc...

I am sure Miami is like many other metropolis' with the exception it is located on a ocean beach... I am sure most of Miami is crowded and has traffic.. and i am sure Miami has waiting lines to get into some restaurants..

if those things dont bother you then I am guessing Miami is nice for you...

I am hoping that parts of Miami and other florida coast towns/cities are less expensive for housing, and the area is clean, and quiet...

those are my priorities...

Currently, I am looking at towns just north of Miami... Stuart, Indiantown, etc...

easy water access and cheap, and clean...

good luck to you...
