    OK...where did you stay?

    I booked late, so couldn't get a cottage beach side, so we got a place overlooking Estero pass around the 400 block of Estero Blvd. The place we've booked for next NYE is a little closer to the pier, beachside... around the 600 block. There are several hotels, condos, and cottages in that stretch. From a proximity standpoint, you can't go wrong with anything on the north end... I did learn the hard way that AirBnB allows "hosts" to delete negative feedback... So, if a place only has a couple of positive feedback's, avoid them. Lesson learned.

    Just booked another week on Siesta Key for a "working" vacation. Can't wait.

    I need to quit coming down here for fun and work, or I'm gonna end up moving! By the end of this year, we will have spent nearly 2-3 months of time visiting/staying in Florida between Orlando, Vero Beach, and SWF since 2016.

    I can't decide where the ultimate best place would be if we do make the plunge. Punta Gorda and CC are appealing due to ability to live on a canal fairly affordably, but then again, I have to wonder if boating is best done out of a marina. 3 car garage, pool, and great schools would be a must. LOVE the sarasota area.

    We would have moved already if it was my call. I can live anywhere in “southeast” for my role. Can’t convince momma (quality teacher that I think could easily get a job). My folks would move with us to be close to grandkids, and they spend three months already anyway.

    Wildcat, ive already looked into schools. Bonita Springs area seems to have the best schools on the gulf side. Housing prices reflect that though, and boating would definitely be via marina. Headed to Orlando next week for work and Marco Island in March for kids spring break.

    I just watched that. It brings all the factors in to focus. I had seen stories on the news about the algae. I had a little understanding of the draining of the swamps.

    I think one of the biggest things they could do is to lobby congress to get rid of the tariffs that allow sugar to be produced. If local congressmen were under pressure from the voters and this pressure was spread to other states through fishermen and other outdoor enthusiast.

    Nabisco has moved its cookie production to mexico because US sugar prices are higher than the world markets due to the tariffs.
