Moving from Boston to the Little Cuba
If you ask retirees, they move because of the year around warm weather and relatively less expensive properties. In fact, retirees, also called snowbirds, flock to Florida in the thousands every winter. And many choose to stay and make it their permanent home. We speak from experience since shipping cars from Massachusetts to Florida is what we do year around.
Thousands of young people also choose Florida, in particular Miami, to make their new home. Florida is a good place to start a business as well as kick start a carrier. The state economy has been slowly improving and attracting people from across the country. If Florida sounds like a nice place to call home, we encourage you to research career or business opportunities and really consider Florida.
Where better to move to if not to vibrant and colorful Miami?
Like Boston, Miami also is a melting cultural hub where besides Spanish and English, you will hear over 80 different languages from all over the world. This major port city is also the seventh-most populous in the US with a population of over 2.7 million people.
Miami offers a laid-back lifestyle that is way more relaxed compared to the fast-paced Boston lifestyle. Its cuisine is delicious, its beaches are breathtaking, and its weather is something you will get used to sooner than you expect. Compared to Boston’s humid continental climate with freezing and snowy winters, Miami offers a year-round tropical weather.
Economy and Employment
The Port of Miami these past two decades has been called the “Cruise Capital of the World” since it is the busiest US port for both passenger and cruise lines. The economy of Miami is one of the richest in the US, especially because the city is an important center of culture, arts, media, and the entertainment industry.
Miami’s economy is mainly fueled by commerce, finance, international trade, and tourism. The Metropolitan Miami ranks second in the US for its developed tourism. Downtown Miami has the largest concentration of international banks in the US and a great number of national and international companies that are ranked as some of the largest in the nation.
Ever dreamed about working for Telemundo, Univision, American Airlines, Cisco, Disney, Exxon, FedEx, LEO Pharma Americas, Microsoft, Yahoo, Oracle, or Sony? You can apply in any of them if you still haven’t found a job.
Housing and Living Cost
Neighborhoods in the city with the third tallest skyline in the United States differ a lot from one another. We always recommend you to do your own research before picking the one that best fits your lifestyle because all of them are unique on their own. Miami has 25 neighborhoods and 40 “sub-neighborhoods”, so it might get hard to pick the right one without reading about them, researching, and asking around for any suggestions.
Even though Miami is the 8th most expensive city to rent in the US, the living and housing costs in Miami are much lower compared to Boston. According to Best Places, the living costs overall are 32.5% cheaper than in Boston, while the Median Home Cost is 44% cheaper.
