From New York to Miami
Florida is called the Sunshine State for a reason. Summer temperatures reach 80` – 90` F on a daily basis. But the winter is what makes the state popular location for all people of North America. New Year’s Eve in shorts and T-shirt does not sound bad at all.
Sunny as we know it, Florida is also the capital of lightnings and storms. As well as hurricanes. The areas most likely to endure a hurricane are the southern tip, the east coast and the gulf coast along the panhandle.
Moving to the Sunshine State
Despite the hurricanes and high humidity weather, the population of Florida continues to grow. With almost 21 million inhabitants, the state is currently the third most populous. Compared to New York’s humid continental climate with freezing winters, Florida’s climate is mostly subtropical.
Economy and Employment
The state’s economy is mainly fueled by trade, financial services, manufacturing, construction, and transportation services. Its tourism keeps thriving and contributing to the economy and is also mixing Florida’s culture even more.
Job opportunities in the Sunshine State are also abundant with open job positions in various industries.
Meet the Floridians
South Florida experienced harsher climate change and sea-level issues than the north part of the states. The unfair advantage of the north makes it hard for the whole state to get support. This is why the mayor of Miami proposed a resolution to split the state in two. Might sound crazy to some, but it is true.
People who have visited Florida confirm that there are differences in the atmosphere in the two regions, too. Usually, the panhandle is considered socially conservative and more economically disadvantaged. The northwest Florida’s economy depends primarily on military bases, beach tourism, agriculture and fishing.
Things to Do in Florida
Life in Florida is so much more than just living by the beach. Florida offers great hiking opportunities, and other outdoor activities such as fishing, kayaking, paddle boarding, bicycling.
As a golf state, it offers golf lovers the terrain they need to practice their favorite sport as well. Universal Orlando, Florida Keys, South Beach, Magic Kingdom, Everglades National Park, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and Disney’s Hollywood Studios are just a few things you need to add and hopefully cross off your bucket list as soon as you possibly can. And let’s not forget the Daytona 500, which is a must see for all sports car lovers.
