Florida is actually not a bad place if you live in one of the right areas. These places are usually on the southern half of the gulf coast and east coast.
While there are many stupid rednecks in the "southern" part, which is actually the northern area of Florida, everyone who lives here is not stupid. I happen to live about a mile away from the one of the best public high schools in the nation.
