You are probably moving because of the warm Atlantic waters. Colorado is just as good as Florida, but does not have warm ocean waters to dip into. So, we have to be honest, Florida does have something better to offer. Sunny beaches and warm water do go together, and Florida has abundance!
Housing and Living Costs
No matter where in Florida you move, get ready to pay the “Sunshine tax” as soon as you relocate. The living and housing costs in most cities in Florida are more expensive than any other city in the US. The Golden State is the most expensive of all, with San Francisco, Santa Barbara and Beverly Hills leading the pack.
Florida’s economy is mainly fueled by tourism and trade, financial services, transportation services, and construction also present big part of the economy. According to the Florida Chamber Foundation, Florida managed to surpass the $1 trillion mark in mid-July 2018. Tourism is a major contributor to the economies of both states. Florida, however, has set tourism records for six consecutive years. In 2016 the state welcomed 112.8 million tourists.
Activities in the Sunshine State
Located on the west coast of the United States, Colorado is this unique land nicknamed the Centennial State. While an outdoorsy person would usually go hiking, fishing, biking or skiing, the case would be slightly different in Florida.
Beach life is the thing there. Hundreds of miles of beautiful beaches compensate for the lack of mountains.
Make sure you visit the some of the most popular landmarks, it is worth it. As such we can name a few: Kennedy Space Center, Universal Orlando, Duval Street, Mallory Square, Daytona 500 International Speedway, Giraffe Ranch, Epcot Theme Park, Florida Keys, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Busch Garden in Tampa,the South Beach, SeaWorld Orlando, Sanibel Island, Magic Kingdom, the Everglades National Park, and the Dry Tortugas National Park.
