From Florida to New York – Why Go The Distance?
If you are moving from Miami to New York city, you may not find a big different, at first. Except the weather. Especially in winter, when it’s sunny in Florida and snowing in New York. During that time you will know the big difference.
Some people move to Florida only for the winter and then they return to New York in spring. These are the snowbirds. They know how to live the good life. They like to stay warm, and when the winter chill drags its cold fronts to the norther states, they move south. Simple as that!
Still, New York state, and New York City, have a lot to offer, and it is no wonder why people move there from all over the world. The state, at large, offers numerous outdoor opportunities. Upstate state New York is beautiful, green and covered in lakes. That is if you are not a fan of the Atlantic Ocean.
If you live and work in a city, a weekend getaway has never been easier. It is full of awesome little cabins in the woods of Silver Lake Wilderness, West Canada Wilderness, near Lake George, or across the thousands of square miles of wilderness up state.
The water is cool in the Hampton dunes, yet nice and refreshing.
And then you have the beaches in the summer. It is not like being in Miami, where the water is warm, but it is nice in the summer. The water is cool in the Hampton dunes, yet nice and refreshing. It is the spot to be. All beaches must be visited and the whole coast explored. You can go deep sea fishing, or jet ski. You can simply lay on the beach and read a book. You can simply take a walk and feel the Atlantic ocean breeze brushing your face. The invigorating power of this breeze will relax your mind and body.
The city of New York can not be described easily. If you are moving there then you know why you are doing it. It is fast paced, crazy and worth it for those ready to live in the city that never sleeps. The big Apple is not for everybody, so make sure you are ready.
