I have an offer to move 15 min. away frome Miami. I currently live in las vegas. My buddies mom has plenty of work for us and everything. I've never lived outside of Arizona or Nevada. The only reason I wanna move is to be close to the Fins! Is it wrong to do this? My mom hates it cuz I wouldn't be able to visit her as much. Just lookin for some thoughts from finfans who live there or anywhere for that matter! :confused:

Been to Vegas and Miami both. I'd rather live in Miami. But that could be because my evil in laws live in Vegas.
But Miami is a much nicer place than Vegas

Wow, how weird... I was born and raised in Las Vegas... I lived there for 30 years and moved to South Florida almost 6 years ago... I'm actually flying to Las Vegas tomorrow for family stuff...

Moving to South Florida from Las Vegas was the BEST thing that I ever did! I'm a season ticket holder for many years now, met my fiancee, getting married in Key West next year... Vegas is not a healthy place anyway... My parents live in Prescott, AZ, and America West has great flights to South Florida!

MOVE!

You're still young...go for it. Just don't get into debt. Are you married? That plays into the equation too. If you're single and the job you have now is expendible, I say go for it. Your buddy's mom isn't a pimp is she?

Lol no pimp. I am single and Vegas has pulled me somewhat into debt anyway. that's why i wanna get out. the job i have is pretty good. I work at Wynn but it doesn't pay as much as I would get paid out there.

Thanks! I really don't think you would regret moving down here... Getting to go to every home game is just the start of the great things here!

I've only vacationed at both places. But I do know that Florida has no state income taxes.

About the same or lower. Not higher then Vegas. The housing market is about the same... And the job market in South Florida is doing very well right now... Although you have a job lined up, all the better!

And with all of the enhancements at Dolphins Stadium... hhhhmmmmm.... :wink:

Neither does Nevada... Sales tax about the same... But Nevada has no water and you can't even wash your car anymore... Yeah, we have hurricanes, but you can get out of the way... :lol:

Nevada doesn't either so that don't really play into it. Vegas is a fun place to vacation but living here sucks.

I mean, traffic is bad here, but nothing like Vegas unless you are in downtown Miami... I laugh when people say traffic is horrendous! :sidelol:

Check out pictures of our Dol-Van from my signature...

Yeah an hour to get home everyday has gotta stop. I'm from a small town though so any traffic is bad for me. That van is quite possibly the coolest thing i have ever seen! :dolphins:

Thanks! We drove it to Tampa last season! It was hilarious! We get a lot of attention on the turnpike!

Good luck with everything man... Drop me a note if/when you get down here... I'm not looking forward to leaving 80 degree weather and St Pattys Day parade for 30s and rain in Vegas!
