Why You Don't Want to Move to Pensacola
Huffington Post - about 2 years
Please don't move to Pensacola. Seriously. I know it has superficial attractions like miles of clean beaches, real estate costs which are a third, or a fourth or a fifth of home values in hip-and-happening major metro areas and sure, you can easily park on the streets downtown, but do you really want to give up the joys of huge cities and vast suburbs for life in a state with no income tax?
You can fish in the Gulf of Mexico, but it's hardly an adventure when you only have to travel a few minutes. And okay, the white sand at the wide beaches is famously crunchy and you don't have to worry about hypodermic needles washing ashore so where's the sport?
I'd like to complain about the rush hour but why bother? According to one national guide, the trip from our house to downtown is "one of the shortest commutes across America."
Lack of Stress
The lack of stress in Pensacola is a real problem. Therapists, psychologists, psychiatrists and social workers seem underemployed. Rumor
