For business reasons I may have to move closer to the Miami area—say within an 1 hour drive (not including traffic).  I know it’s the liberal and all the negatives politically but where is there a nice place to live along the cost for lets say ~1 million bucks for here house?  Don’t care much about schools but food, bars, etc are important.  Then I have to hunt for either land or a house not in a development because I refuse to live in an HOA.  I don’t think I’ll sell my house on Amelia Island in case I decide to go back.  

My other choice may be Naples but I understand the same issues.   Any help there would be great too.

I should clarify near the water.  10-20 minute drive is near the water fo rme.  I don't want to be an hour west of Miami where I am an hour from the ocean.  

I don't even know what towns are any good?

Condos on the beach are 2 mil and up in Nipples.
House with land on the beach is 75 mil.

Didn't really want to bust this guys bubble plus I need reprogramed by the new administration
and may go off before that happens.

Good news is he can be my neighbor for $200,000 and live across the street from Fred and 4 pit bulls.

Yeah I in know way expect to be beach front.  I just want to be within driving distance to a beach.  

I'm also gonna have to expand the budget a bit it appears.  

Pricing looks more favorable in Naples as long as your inland.  Is it a nice place?

Summer is special.

Why not try some local real estate professionals who specialize in relocations?

Here's the thing...could be safe then 3 blocks over a war zone.  There is a problem where builders & real estate people build up nice areas around a hood to beautify it. Hoping the bad eliminates will move away.  
You likely will want to look west & drive in like most do.  And good luck finding a non HOA place.
