Florida is known as the "Sunshine State" which is so true for the most part of the year.
Florida is such a large state and starts on the east outside of Georgia, on the west coast of FL outside of Alabama.
We are flanked by two seas, the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico.
If you are lucky enough to visit Key West Florida, you can catch a sunrise and a sunset in the same day...or perhaps, you can wake up on the east coast in Ft. Lauderdale and see a sunrise and then make the one and a half hour to two hour trip over to the west coast of Naples and catch a beautiful sunset!
In the winter all of the visitors come to Florida and make it their winter get away from the snow and the cold of the Northern states, Upper state New York and Canada.
I chose Naples, South West FL as my residence. The weather is sub tropical and the coldest it has gotten during a cold snap is in the low 40 degree numbers.
In Florida as a full time resident, your property can be "homesteaded" and you get a lower tax rate on your property. Also, there is no state income tax in Florida.
Of course, do not forget about our wonderful citrus produce and oranges and be sure to come on down, you will be glad you did!
