Why are people moving to Florida?
Florida has recently passed New York as the nation’s third-largest state, and it is a favorite vacation spot for millions of people from around the world.
It is also a favorite winter get away for thousands of New Jerseyans. Why would a New Jerseyan spend the winter in Florida? Well, if you’ve ever been up north to New York, or New Jersey in the winter, you may just have an idea. The winters in this part of the US are not the most pleasant of seasons.
Yet, the cold season is not the only reason people move to the Sunshine State. In the last few years, Florida has seen tremendous economic growth while the real estate prices have remained affordable. In Florida, money really buys real estate, it buys space. But for many the cold winters remain the main reason for moving to Florida. Most people who live in New Jersey and New York say the winters just keep getting worse.
The vibrant and energetic city of Miami is one of the most popular destinations for snowbirds, and all who prefer a warm climate and laid-back lifestyle. As someone moving from New Jersey, you will be able to enjoy not only the year-round tropical weather and relaxed lifestyle, but also its delicious food and breathtaking beaches.
Get ready to put up with heat and humidity. Florida has tropical monsoon climate with short winters that are mostly dry and warm. Summers are hot and humid, while the hurricane season runs from the beginning of June until the end of November. It does sound different than Jersey, right?
Economy and employment
For the last two decades, the Port of Miami has been widely known as the “Cruise Capital of the World.” It is the busiest port in the US for both passenger and cruise lines. The city is also a major commerce, finance, and international trade hub and an important center of culture, arts, media, and the entertainment industry.
The Metropolitan Miami ranks second in the US for tourism. And Downtown Miami is home to some of the largest national and international companies, and it also has the largest concentration of international banks in the States.
