Born and lived in CT all my life with the exception of my military time.
We are desperate to move away from this toxic liberal state. We owned a winter home in FL in the past. Our daughter lives in Naples Fl, a real nice place to visit, not sure if it's for us. Thinking of either North or South Carolina. Maybe near Myrtle Beach, SC. Close to the ocean yet a short drive to the mountains.
All you good people from either of these states please chime in with your first hand comments/choices of the areas.
