The Top Reasons for Moving to Florida

Welcome sign entering the state of Florida southbound from Georgia along Interstate 95.

Well-known for its stunning beaches, temperate climate, and of course, being the home of Disneyland, Florida is a glamourous place to live and has long been a magnet for those looking for a laid-back but vibrant place to call home.

Here are a few reasons moving to Florida might be the right decision for you!

Strong Economy & Job Market

The Florida economy and job market have been very strong due to its top industries of tourism & hospitality, real estate & development, defense & homeland security, and several others. In 2021, Florida achieved a record 117.7 million tourists, which exceeds pre-pandemic levels. Florida’s economy is currently ranked as the 4th largest in the U.S., based on its Gross State Product of $1.1 Trillion, behind California, Texas, and New York.

Beautiful Attractions

Depending on where you move to in Florida, there are many great attractions to enjoy that are within a single-day trip. If you move to South Florida, explore the southernmost point in the US or travel to Everglades National Park on an airboat ride. If you move to west central Florida, explore the John & Mable Ringling Museum of Art and the famous St Armands Circle in Sarasota, or check out the Kennedy Space Center and their shuttle experience in the Titusville area. If you relocate to the northern panhandle area of Florida, check out Fort Pickens and the many historical sites in Pensacola.

Amazing Weather

With more than 200 sunshine-filled days a year, Florida offers newcomers exceptionally warm and sunny weather. Despite the hot and humid summers, Florida seasons are mostly mild and warm. Those living in the southern portion of the Sunshine State will likely never need more than a sweater during the winter. Take Miami, for example. The average winter temperature ranges from 76 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit. In the summer, the temperature tops off at 90 degrees.

Water Activities

Whether you want to lounge on the white sand along the Gulf of Mexico or catch a wave on the Atlantic coast, the Florida beaches are like no other. Beyond the salt water, 4,308 square miles of lakes, rivers, and streams are the perfect place to launch your boat or jet ski after a long work week.
