Beware the eccentric Florida Man (or Florida woman). But still good Cuban food. Theme parks are a meh for me though. We have all the originals 3 hours max from my house.

Also alligators, NASA, Universal and Florida Man doing deeply crazy stuff. And Carl Hiaasen's books and swimming at fun beaches.

Also, palm trees swaying at a dark airport. One of my few lasting childhood memories.

Obnoxious college football fans. No wait, that's Alabama, lol

Heat and humidity. That's the first thing I think about Florida after living there for a couple of years.

There's nice beaches there, but the people are crazy, and I've experienced so many asshole drivers there as well.

Hot, lots of crazy people and illegals. However, nice scenery and conservatives. So i guess neutral.

Why would the presence of illegal immigrants make a place a bad place to live? I hate this Trump-caused stigma of illegals. They commit no more crimes, other than one by being in the U.S. illegally, than any other person.

Want to come here? Great. Do it legally

Very positive. I like the beaches, the tropical savannah climate (southern part), more laid back environment than Minnesota, and Warm Mineral Springs.
