How does Florida's experience reflect post WWII expectations?
As the war became a large part of American spending and energy, Florida became the home to many army/navy related persons. Thus the population grew. At the wars conclusion, veterans returned back to Florida, starting a new life in nice weather. The invention of air-conditioning gave Americans a better reason to stay here and among other things, roads and new houses made Florida attractive to movers as well. As the population grew, job opps. and more resources became available. This only attracted more and more people.
