Best City in FL for truck driving jobs

Jump to last reply

I used to live in Holiday in Pasco County on the west coast. It was nice when I bought there but very quickly became WAY too populated for my taste (I'm a country girl). Been living very happily in a log cabin in the Adirondack Park in upstate NY on 5 acres of woodland until I left my husband last year.

Currently in Lynchburg VA and want to move back to Florida to be somewhat closer to my only living nephew (he's in Clearwater/Dunedin).

I was hoping to find a nice area in the northern end of Florida on the east coast where I could live and MAYBE work in Georgia and still get home at least every other night but every night is preferable. WHERE would be good?

OR, where would be good just outside some of the larger cities in the north where I could live in a "rural-ish" area and travel in to get my truck or whatever?

OR, would any jobs for truckers be available in the keys? I've never been to any area's other than Pinellas and Pasco counties. Need some ideas if you can help me.

Am considering the east coast hoping that it's a bit less humid than the west coast. More breezy is good too.

My favorite things to do are stay home, gardening (when it's not TOO hot), I would really love free concerts in parks, food or other street festivals, and things such as this. Not big on restaurants, arts, movies, shopping, etc. Pretty prehistoric in that sense I guess. Don't want to be around a LOT of people ALL the time. Small doses is fine.
Thanks. (PS, I'm coming in on 60 years of age if that helps, don't want to be around a gazillion kids playing basketball in the street outside my bedroom 24/7)
