Things You Should Know About Florida
Before making the final decision on whether or not to move to Florida, there are some things you should know about the area. Luckily, our long distance movers have spent a lot of time in Florida helping homeowners just like you get settled into their new lives. This means we have a good amount of knowledge concerning what life is like in Florida. Our movers have compiled a few different reasons that you should think about moving to Florida!
Florida, also known as The Sunshine State, has a population of over 21 million people. This makes it clear that Florida is a hotspot for many people looking to move to a different state. In fact, each year, Florida attracts thousands of newcomers and it isn’t hard to see why. That’s because, from the near-constant sunny weather to the lack of an income tax, there are many great reasons to consider a move to Florida.
The weather is one of the top reasons that so many people move to Florida. With more than 200 sunshine-filled days per year, Florida is truly the land of sunshine. Newcomers will enjoy all of the sunny, warm weather and the fact that you never need more than a light jacket in the winter season. Although summers in Florida can be a bit humid and hot, Florida seasons tend to be mild and warm overall. This makes Florida the perfect place for those who would rather spend most of their time outdoors taking part in any of the countless outdoor activities that can be found in the Sunshine State.
If you’re looking to save more money on a monthly basis, Florida is the place for you! This is because there is no state income tax in Florida. This allows residents to save more of their hardearned money for things they enjoy doing. Combined with the fact that housing is fairly affordable in most of Florida’s cities, you definitely won’t break the bank when you choose to move to Florida.
Popular Towns to Visit in Florida
So what are some of the most popular towns to visit and live in Florida? While there are many towns we could have chosen to mention, the most popular towns in Florida tend to be Jacksonville, Miami, Tampa, and, of course, Orlando. Each of these towns bring their own charm and unique reasons for considering a new life there. Today, we will be talking about Jacksonville and Orlando in-depth. Let’s learn more about what life is like in these popular Florida towns!
Let’s start with Jacksonville. While there are many reasons that so many people choose to move to Jacksonville each year, there are a few reasons in particular that this Florida town is so popular. With a population of over 903,000 people, Jacksonville boasts over 850 square miles of beautiful beaches, natural beauty, and fun attractions for residents and tourists alike to enjoy. Upon moving to Jacksonville, Florida it won’t take you very long to discover that music and the
arts are everywhere in this popular Florida town. Being home to the birthplace of Southern rock and a location with roots in jazz and blues music, music is an important part of life in Jacksonville.
The Jacksonville Jazz Festival, for example, is one of the largest festivals in the entire country and spans 15 blocks in downtown Jacksonville each Memorial Day Weekend. Thousands of people turn out to enjoy the music, food, and street atmosphere and it is by far one of the most popular events held in Jacksonville each year. Jacksonville is also a water lover’s dream with plenty of stunning beaches, pier access points, and waterways. Whether you just want to take a romantic walk on the beach in the evening or partake in swimming during the day, you’ll love living in Jacksonville. Some of the best
neighborhoods to live in Jacksonville include San Marco, The Beaches, Downtown, Riverside, and Ortega Forest.
Next, let’s talk about Orlando, one of the most well-known towns in Florida. While you probably recognize Orlando immediately as being home to some of the most popular theme parks in the world including Walt Disney World and Universal Studios, there are many more reasons that you should consider moving to Orlando. Not only is Orlando one of the fastest-growing cities in the country but it also offers high-quality education, some of the best seafood you can find, and
plenty of fun destinations for residents and tourists to enjoy.
Orlando is home to an incredible public school system in Orange County that offers excellent infrastructures that support both the arts and sports. Orlando is also home to the second-largest university in the United States, the University of Central Florida. A few other popular colleges in Orlando include Rollins College, Valencia College, and Stetson University. Each of these institutions provides top-notch higher learning for those interested in furthering their education.
Aside from the high-quality education you can enjoy in Orlando, you can also enjoy some of the best, freshest seafood that you can find in the entire country. With a large amount of seafood constantly being drained from the oceans in Florida, fresh seafood is never far away but Orlando is also home to some of the most sustainable fishing practices that can be found in the country. Two restaurants in Orlando have even joined the new Smart Catch program, a program that only considers restaurants that serve 80 percent or more of sustainable seafood on their menus!
Some of the most popular neighborhoods in Orlando that you should consider moving to include Baldwin Park, the Central Business District, College Park, Lake Nona Region, and Thorton Park.
Long Distance Moving Tips
Now that you have a better idea of whether or not Florida is the right place for you, our movers have a couple of long distance moving tips you should consider when preparing for your move to Florida. For one, we highly recommend organizing your items properly during the packing process. If you are working with Poseidon Moving and Storage for your long distance move, you won’t have to worry about this but if you choose to go it alone, it’s important that you organize as you pack. This is a great time-saver and our movers highly recommend organizing at least one box of Day One items that you can begin using immediately upon arriving to your new home in Florida. This should include items such as pots and pans, plates, everyday clothes, and other important items.
Secondly, our movers highly recommend packing your mattress in a box. During the long transport to Florida, it is possible that your mattress could be bent out of shape, damaged, or otherwise made dirty if you neglect to pack it properly in a box. Leaving your mattress outside of a box creates unnecessary risk for damage and this is something you should avoid by all costs. After all, it would be unfortunate to arrive to your new home in Florida only to find that you immediately have to go out and purchase a new mattress due to damage done to yours during transport. Think smart about how you pack your mattress when moving to Florida!
