That is a gorgeous gt. And yes, having lived in both Florida and Seattle there's no comparison. Florida for the win!

There is a lot to like about Washington... Huge year-round snow-capped mountains, rugged seacoast, beautiful deep lakes, high desert... If you can stand the politics.
Sounds like the west coast version of New England in pretty much every aspect. Are the people there friendly at all? Cause the majority sure as hell aren't here, lol. 12 years here and I still often feel like an outsider besides a few longtime friends I've had since high school 🤷‍♂️.

After 40+ years living in central Florida, last November I relocated to east Tennessee. I was tired of 6 months of Africa Hot summers and ready for 4 seasons.
Just about exactly my story! Surprised at how many Florida ex-pats are here! And it's about the same for ex-Californians, where I was born (Coronado).
I'm now in Pigeon Forge, after 47 years on the Space Coast.

Ironically, most of my siblings have relocated to Sequim, WA, just north of Seattle.
Same here! I moved here in 2018 after 45+ years in Fla...

I'm currently living in an apartment in Lenoir City while waiting for my house to get built near Sweetwater.

I’m kinda surprised, everything I hear says places like Seattle are heading in the wrong direction and Florida is all sunshine and roses. Bet you will use that top down a lot more!!!!

Seattle the city has a reputation of people not being friendly, but we did not find that so. Maybe they're more insular and not outgoing, but friendly once you engage. Being a Floridian and an east-coaster, I found Seattle to be too gray and too cool for too long. Doesn't really rain that much, but it's overcast, drizzly (but not rainy) and in the 40s about 9 months out of the year, and the water, whether ocean, Puget sound or lakes, is very deep, very dark, and freezing cold all year long. There are two, maybe 3 good months of beautiful San Diego-like summer weather. The politics and cost of living are what really drove us away though.

Moved here from TX in 2019. Was decent the first couple of years. Now homeowners is 6x what I paid the first year. Doubled in 22, doubled again this year. It's my only complaint. Get much more top down time here than anywhere I lived in TX.
