Away, away from the Sunshine State
Every year, come March, we see droves of people making their way to Florida. Most of them are snowbirds who want to transport their cars to their summer homes. Hence, when the time comes to return to New Jersey, all those vehicles are shipped back.
New Jersey might not be the most popular state, neither a favorite to many, but it is home to a little over 9.2 million people, which is more than New York. It is one of the mid size states from the East coast and a preferred location for many looking to relocate close to New York City.
For Floridians, New Jersey offers something they would otherwise miss too much – nice beaches and beach night life. Atlantic City and Cape May are favorite spots for relax and night life. People from all over the country actually visit these to cities, so they are a tourists spot.
New Jersey’s coast certainly can not compare to Florida’s, but it has a lot to offer. The state’s economy certainly is not fueled by tourism or fishing, the way it is in Florida. The magnificent beaches and famous theme parks in Orlando bring millions of visitors every year and Atlantic City can not match that but is has its shimmer and shine. Electronics, construction, real estate, and international banking are among the top industries across the state and number of jobs are available to the state’s residents and the people relocating.
Many people choose to relocate to New Jersey for that reason. The service industry in Florida, and the non stop tourists all over contribute to many people choosing to leave. New Jersey is the most densely populated state in the US. The state’s geographic location fueled its rapid growth through the process of sub-urbanization over the last century. This began reverting New Jersey’s culturally diverse population toward more urban settings. Small towns grew around commuter rail stations outpacing the population growth of more automobile-oriented suburbs. This, and much more is what makes thousands of people move there. Just like any state, New Jersey is not perfect, but it has its charm and strong economic incentives to move there. Research all aspects such as job market, housing market and state taxes in order to feel comfortable that moving to New Jersey is the right decision.
