An infernal peninsula, jutting out the southeast edge of the U.S.A. like a disgusting tumour. It consists mainly of weak people from the Northeast and Midwest who left classy, excellent areas like New York, Chicago, or Connecticut, their children who were raised here or forced here and are getting out at the first opportunity possible, native Floridians who are a bunch of miserable hicks and wear camo jackets and crap to high school, and immigrants who stay here because this is where they happen to be, and would probably get out very quickly if they found out what the rest of the country has to offer.

The political system of the State is atrocious. There's no income tax, so the State Gov't. gets all its money from sales and real-estate tax. This has many effects.

For example, the educational-system condemns the poor children of this State to recieve a quality of education and schooling that would be considered remarkable sub-par for such a developed country. Class sizes are commonly 35+ and even hit 40 quite commonly, and the teachers are paid such rubbish that many have to live with their parents or rely on their spouse for monetary support. Low pay results in many highly-capable individuals to be turned away from the job. So teacher quality is some of the worst you will find anywhere in the country.

The government having no money also results in a wait time of at least two to three weeks for power if a hurricane hits you. The hurricane months of August-October can easily get as hot as in the middle of the summer, so this situation results in the utter misery of picking rotten food out of the fridge, begging for the power to come back for the A/C to give you some release.

Oh and if a road is being built, take your estimate of how long it'll take to build, and triple it, and you're heading in the right direction.

With anything funded by the State government, just expect the worst every time, in any category, whether education, infrastructure, management, incompetence is the norm. Just come to expect it.

As for natural beauty, there is nothing to be found here. Florida literally has the flattest, most dull landscape, of anywhere you will see in the entire country. Kansas may be flat too, but at least it's scenic in it's own way, Florida is just a huge, swampy sandbar that was developed on for the masochists who moved here. The natural vegetation is just a mix of swampy shrubs and trees adapted for the muggy climate. Entirely dull and uninteresting.

The weather is also, yes, too hot. If you want a nice climate, you don't have to go to the muggiest place in the country. People in cold climates think they want one extreme instead of the other, but never realise somewhere in the middle makes more sense. There's too hot, and too cold, and Florida is too hot. There's no variety to the seasons, just one, sunny and muggy. Or rainy and muggy sometimes. The only bearable months of the year are perhaps December-February. The snowbirds often come during these months, and mistakenly come to believe that the weather is tolerable year around, and get stuck here.

Florida can be divided into two distinct regions: north Florida and south Florida. North Florida has a more "Deep South" feel, while in south Florida, it seems that everyone is from New York, is Jewish, is Hispanic, or any combination of these. The person before who said that north florida has all the old people must be living under a rock. You can't go on any road in SoFlo where there isn't some old geezer in a Buick driving 15 mph and holding up traffic
North Florida resident: My name's Billy Bob and I enjoy huntin, fishin, n muddin. South Florida resident: My name is Jonah Goldstein and I enjoy playing golf, shuffleboard, and bingo.

My own personal hell. A place for the newly wed, and the nearly dead. It's an okay vacation spot, but when you move here, you'll see it's not exactly paradise. It's not as pretty as you might think. There's absolutely nothing to do, and no one to meet. Unless you're visiting a retirement home. The beaches ae nice, but even that gets old. Huricanes are the worst. It ains all summer long. The seasons don't change. It's just hot, really fucking hot, and somewhat chilly. More humidity and moisture in the air than a damn sauna. America's penis.
You live in Florida? Sucks to be you.

Pretty good place. Except for the fact that the whole 'sunshine state' thing is wrong. In the tampa area(where I live), it rains almost every day for at least 30 minutes in the summer. And the storms can be violent. (And the weather in Tampa doesn't define the weather of the whole state) But when it's not raining it's pretty nice. Everyone thinks that it's really hot, it is, but it's not near as humid as Georgia(my home state) and there's always a slight breeze. There are a lot of palm trees and really great beahes everywhere. A lot of wide open fields with huge neighborhoods packed between them where the houses are 5 feet apart. Many atractions like Busch Gardens, Disney World... etc. Old people retire here. And the beaches are the best to people-watch at. Overall it's okay. Every state has its goods and its bads, so you can't stereotype them by just a few factors. If you wanna know more about Florida, stop reading urban dictionary and visit.
Florida is the southern-most state in the U.S

The Old go there to die, the Young go there to ride rollercoasters.
- You going to Florida soon Ben?
- Nah, not in the mood to die or go to the amusement park.
- Movies then?
- OK

America's discount tropical paradise. North part has nice friendliness, southern part has a lot of "girls gone wild" and cool waitresses. Also is my future home state.
In Florida, you can hug your waitress and nothing will happen. Try that in Illinois and you'd get kicked out of the restaurant.
