    For some reason I thought you guys were right outside of Miami! Maybe that was a discussion I was having with Ric were he said he thought about going to Miami area at one time? Where you guys at?

    What I have noticed is that very few from Miami post on this forum. The majority of "landscapers" do not speak English as a native language so that may be why. I live in Key Largo and go to Miami regularly to take care of my tenants and visit my parents. Around here lawns are rare due to extended dry weather and a lack of soil. The neighborhood park does have bermudagrass though.

    No problema, Mi hablo espanol. However between Rent A Licenses, Low Balling and traffic Jams; I don't think I could make it in greater Miami area. I want very much to live near my Children who both live on South Beach. Key Largo would be perfect for me if I could afford the high cost of living there. I am sure there are a thousand CPO in Florida who would take a job cheap in that area.

    The keys, you can have them. Too dry, too hot and were becoming gentrified. I like the natural areas, and boating but it was actually more relaxing to live in Clewiston than here. Miami gives me a headache with its traffic and ghetto stripped landscaping. Latin Americans, especially Cubans hate trees and love iron fences topped with lights and a concrete yard. South Beach in my opinion is a glorified dump full of homeless and an arsonist or two. Years back it was a muscle faries paradise but I am not sure what it is now. A shame how south Florida became the world's dumping ground.

    I agree with you on Miami but the Keys not. I never get hot down there because I am in the water snorkeling or diving. Beautiful water and warmer water than the bahamas.

    I am sorry, but if you can't be happy in the Florida Keys, You Can't be happy

    Florida is the gunshine state so it is always a good idea to have metal handy when in questionable areas. Here in the keys it is said that you have to be drunk or fishing to enjoy life here. The real estate bubble was what ruined the lifestyle but it may return if home values keep falling. The lack of water here is what I hate the most. The people here generally have a better attitude if they are from the keys, but snowbirds often have a bad disposition. It may not go over 100 here but we do not get cooling thunderstorms in the summer like on the mainland.
