Almost everyone here is so deep that could get lost in the emotional words you all write. The state isn't what you hate, and I can tell you why. If there were no state borders in the US and you wandered into the theoretical "Florida" that you hate (which I assume is a place with rude people, hurricanes, and hot swamps) you could be in Louisiana or any other state with those qualities (no hate on Louisiana, it's one of my favorite places in the US). My point is that you don't dislike Florida, you dislike certain qualities that it has. Florida as a whole is a great state with some of the greatest history of most other states (MOST). It has attractions in both nature and cities. Miama and Tampa are the two of the biggest cities in Florida and you could drive through either in 8 minutes or less (at least Tampa, that's for sure) on average. Lastly, the state is huge. Just because you had a bad time in one part doesn't make the whole state bad, I've met jerks and rednecks before in Georgia, that doesn't make the whole state Dou****** Countryhickville. I only wrote this to express my opinion without writing 5 different stories.

"Just because you had a bad time in one part doesn't make the whole state bad..." I disagree. I gave Florida my best shot. I've tried Palm Coast (aka HELL). I've tried Daytona (also Hell). I've tried the Space Coast. I've tried Orlando. I've tried South Florida. I've tried Ocala. I've tried the Panhandle. And I've even tried Tampa. Tampa is the least of all of the evils, but this state is not for me. I'm sorry that it bothers you that at least one person doesn't like Florida (why else would you write this experience?). This place is not home, and I'm counting down the days until I can leave permanently.
