I live in OC and to find anything satisfactory, you're looking at least .5MM.High cost of living, high taxes, and overcrowded cities would have me looking elsewhere. You can get similar climate and resources elsewhere and live a far better lifestyle, IMO, and have plenty of extra cash around to visit whenever you want.
I would like to move from my beloved SoCal to FL. In fact, Bogleheads, enlighten me: Why would someone want to stay in SoCal, with its high expenses/density, when one could live on the water in FL, and actually use the water itself (as in swimming)?
Friends from FL say SoCal is much nicer, but I just don't get it. When I visit, I love FL and I'd rather be close to East coast big cities than West coast big cities.
I could never live in Florida. The humidity is insane. What's wrong with swimming in SoCal ocean?
