It was very last minute since I cared for my mom and she needed 24 hour care from a hospital stay. Looking at South Florida nursing homes left much to be desired from what I could afford but In the Orlando area there where more superior rated facilities available. Her move was an overnight choice and I followed within the week with much dismay.
Missed the beach which i'm sure you will to Heather. Night life here in Orlando was not all that great and at the time almost no way to advertise was available. You won't have that problem and being the new girl in Vegas you should be busy with the locals. Plenty of nightlife for fun when your not busy and i'm sure since Vegas is the Convention Capital for many lots of influx. Vegas has their slow times though just as Florida. I think your first year there you won't have a shortage of gentlemen suitors.
PS : I wouldn't go back to live in South Florida again but enjoy my visits but Vegas has been one of my favorite places for years. Good luck and you will be missed by many.
