Review of St. Augustine, Florida


Just one PROBLEM!!
Star Rating - 4/7/2013
Been here 5 years!!! Its a beautiful area to live in like most of Florida but what people have to keep in mind is that Florida is not a state to move into if your a blue collar worker with no higher educational degree like a bachelors or higher!!! So be forewarn, do not move to Florida and expect to make a good living as a factory, construction or any other type of non degree job. The pay in all of Florida is minimal at best!! Housing is not as cheap has realtors make it seem. Keep in mind taxes and utilities cost, especially electric. Also hurricane season means possible damages you will have to spend money on and those are up in the thousands not a few hundred. Crime is mostly in the black neighborhoods, shootings and heavy drug problems are very well present but are also well segregated. You will see pockets of white bikers gangs and the obvious trailer trash bringing in meth and other hard drugs along with prostitution. But like any and every city you cant escape crime. Over all its a wonderful area if your WEALTHY or are a RETIREE thats has a sufficient retirement to live a good life. If your not well off economically you WILL SUFFER IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA, no matter were you go!!!!

According to you "Crime is mostly in the black neighborhoods" and "You will see pockets of white bikers gangs and the obvious trailer trash bringing in meth and other hard drugs along with prostitution." - Here's a news flash. If you have meth and other hard drugs along with prostitution, you have crime. Therefore, crime is NOT relegated to "black neighborhoods"
