Ijust left Destin area for Tennessee. Making nearly double what I was in Florida. Tried for 9 months to get a worthwhile job. Despite 20 years of military service and a slight disabilty (a preference advantage for some companies), 10$ an our was all I could find. Best of luck...

If you have kids that's a big problem too no day cares and the county schools are awful. Lots of homeschool and mini private schools that are crap just big bucks for nothing. If you're retired it's fine if you need to live good luck.

Not too good unless your one of the retired carpet baggers or ex-military living on your govt. funded retirement entitlement program. Congestion, high cost of living, low pay and overpriced rent and housing is the norm!

Don't listen t the negative replies about jobs and cost of living. Those people have found a piece of paradise and want to keep it to themselves. There are plenty of good jobs and inexpensive housing. Come get some.

I am looking for a 2 bedroom home to rent. When I look online, all I see are tourist rental homes. Does anyone know of family homes to rent in a nice neighborhood?

Since there are plenty of good jobs and inexpensive housing as you say...... Would you please take a little time to let us know where they can be found? Are you kidding... 10 to 12 dollars an hour for skilled trades? The only way one can make ends meet in your so-called paradise is if your one of those who are clinging to that government tit and working a part time job.
