I think we need to stop being motzi shem rah on all of “Florida” or even “Miami Beach”. There are hundreds of ehriche, frum Yidden living there, yireim v’shleimim, who are bringing up beautiful Torah families. The problem is with the “imports”, those people who choose to vacation in this area because of the beautiful weather, and conveniently leave their Shulchan Aruch and Mishnah Brurah at home. There are plenty of kosher opportunities for entertainment. You don’t have to go to the beach. It happens that the proper attire for the beach is known to not be tzniusdik. So if you at all care, DON’T GO TO THE BEACH! Take walks. Go biking. Go boating. Go to the theme parks. There’s plenty of entertainment without taxing your yetzer hara. Oh, and if you’re really interested, there are several yeshivos and kollelim that are fully functional during “vacation”.
