I moved down here from N.Y. over 12 years ago. The first couple of years was culture shock and I had to get use to things moving at a much slower pace down here compared to N.Y. Once you get over the culture shock, you will see that North Port is a nice place to live.

Dont know if you have visited the area, but be prepared for culture shock. My wife and I moved to North Port in 1995. What a change from NY, Nothing gets done quickly, I MEAN NOTHING.. Be very careful when hiring anyone to do work for you> I am a retired police officer and it is my opinion that more then half of the people you will deal with are trying to con you. We couldnt take the slow pace and the disfuntional govt, so we moved back to NY. Good luck. If you can, rent in North Port until you find out if you like it.
