About Florida

Florida is the southernmost state in mainland USA, hence its nickname ‘the Sunshine State’. It is also the third largest state in terms of population, and names Tallahassee as its capital. Florida’s location allows the state the longest coastline in the mainland of the United States, and as such there are tonnes of beautiful beaches. Moving to Florida would be highly recommended for those looking to relocate to somewhere that is rich in tourism, agriculture and transportation industries.

Suburb Profiles

Tallahassee is the state capital and is home to Florida State University. The city has a large student population; around 36% of inhabitants are students. Tallahassee also plays host to many notable institutions such as the Florida State Capitol, the Supreme Court of Florida and the Florida Governor’s Mansion. Industry in the city is largely professional, hosting several law firms, lobbying organisations, trade and professional associations, including the Florida Bar and the Florida Chamber of Commerce.
Orlando is known as the “theme park capital of the world”, with many attractions such as Walt Disney World, Universal Studios and a whole host of water parks. Orlando is another large student destination: The University of Central Florida is the largest university campus in the US in terms of student population. Additionally, Orlando is one of the busiest cities in the US for conferences and events and is home to the 2nd largest American convention centre.
Miami is a major port city on the Atlantic coast and is home to a large port for cruise ships, often considered to be the best in the world. With regards to industry, Miami is a leader in finance, commerce, media, entertainment and the arts, and of course international trade. many sizeable national and international organisations have a Miami office, and the city has the highest concentration of international banks in the USA.
Jacksonville is the largest city in Florida by population and is the largest in mainland USA by land area. Jacksonville is home to a major military and civilian deep-water port, and thrives in the industries of banking, healthcare, insurance and logistics. There is also a strong tourism industry, particularly in golf-related tourism.

Getting Around in Florida

Transport in Florida is good, with rail services operating not only within the state but also intercity, connecting Florida with states as far as Virginia and New York. Florida has 131 public airports, 7 of which are large international airports, and between them they offer countless domestic flights for travel within the US. If you are considering moving to Florida, transport will most certainly not be a concern for you!

Things to Do in Florida

The world-famous amusement parks may be a huge tourist attraction. But that doesn’t mean locals can’t enjoy them too! Once you have made your big move to Florida, take a trip to Disney World or one of the water parks for a fun-filled family day out. We’d also advise making sure you don’t become complacent to the stunning beaches Florida has to offer, with their white sand, clear blue waters and constant sunshine. You can also head out onto the water for some boating, fishing, or to enjoy the maritime wildlife. On Merritt Island, the Kennedy Space Centre is an educational and fun place to spend a day. People travel long distances to visit the renowned space centre, so if you’re local to the state it’s certainly worth a trip.
