Because I'm expecting and I'm Cuban, my dh and I are considering moving to Fl.  We are currently looking at Sarasota, Naples and Tampa.  We're in PA now and don't know much about the state.  What the schools are like, work availability and neighborhood info would be greatly appreciated. Also, if you know of any other cities that are safe, quiet and have good schools, that'd be great too.

Thanks much!

Yes, you should REALLY do your homework. I live in CA and one of my cuban friends just moved to FL from CA. Well, he and his family only lasted about a year there before he had to pick up and move again, this time to AZ. People REALLY took a hit there with the Real Estate market. He also said the job market was dismal? His wife was hired by the school district and then laid-off. He is in the real estate business and didn't have any work. He had bought a beautiful new house just outside Palm Beach, and he had to let it go unfortunately. 

But you know what?? It's different for everyone.....................
