Where would I want to live ?

Why Florida ?
Although New Hampshire is a very safe environment for both children and adults , I would love to live somewhere less cold and far away from the place I grew up . I feel that New Hampshire is a very boring state . Florida has a much lively feel . Its warmer and there is way more to do there . Why stay in a place where you feel trapped when you could live a more active lifestyle in a beautiful state like Florida ?
The sunshine state !
Don't get me wrong , there are plenty of negative things you could argue to prove that Florida isn't all its said to be , but I think the positives definitely over power the negatives . The crime rate in Florida is about 65.9 % and its economy hasn't returned to pre recession levels , but improvement is steady if slow . Next , the climate is very humid , but personally, I don't mind being warm . Id much rather be sweating year round than be in an ice box for even half a year like new Hampshire or Canada . Florida is second in the nation in educational progress over the past 10 years . Florida has no income tax. I also like that all religions and races are welcome . In December of 2013 , the unemployment rate was at 6.2 % . Not bad if you ask me . Lastly , recreation like public parks , beaches and activity centers and very famous amusements parks are open to all citizens .
