There are so many reasons to love life in Florida. 

First, let’s talk about the wealth of outdoor recreation opportunities, from soaking up the golden rays on your pick of pristine beaches to exploring the jungle-like parks to kayaking and paddle boarding down one of the many lakes or rivers. And, of course, we can’t mention Florida without bringing up Walt Disney World, a major source of entertainment and employment opportunities for Floridians. 

And while the recreation options are major perks, you’re also bound to find a job you love here. Some of the major employers in the area are the health care industry, the local public school system, Walt Disney World and Publix.

When you clock out for the day and start cruising down the interstate, you’ll be able to view some pretty exquisite architecture, especially Florida’s bridges, like Sunshine Skyway, the Seven-Mile Bridge and the Bridge of Lions. And don’t forget to make a pit stop for some fresh seafood and produce.
