As far as South Florida goes, I left because I couldn't stand the area. Too much intolerance, too much social divide, too much violence, and frankly... I noticed my home was not my home anymore. West Palm Beach is being completely overrun. It's a shame, because I love Palm Beach County. It's a paradise. My family was a staple of Jupiter FL in the 30s and 40s. A close family friend, someone my relatives used to call uncle, was a well known trapper. It was my legacy, almost.
And I moved. Way up north. And I love it up here. It kills me but South Florida right now is dying. I don't know why, and I don't know how to fix it but simply put... it's a place you don't really want to be if you can help it.
