10 Undeniable Reasons You Belong in Florida

10 Undeniable Reasons You Belong in Florida


1.     You love the beach.

And let’s be honest, who doesn’t love spending time at the beach? It involves so many things that we enjoy separately: being outdoors, swimming, playing games, eating beach food (which in Florida is particularly special because of the high quality seafood). Beach days always remind me of being a kid. It’s hard not to revert to that childlike mentality at the beach, which is probably why I always have a good time.

2.     Palm trees are your thing.

I love trees; I always have. I was even thinking of being an arborist for a while, so I have an appropriate appreciation for trees in all the shapes they come in. There is something really special about palm trees. They have a majesty to them that evokes the exotic places like ancient Egypt or Siam and they remind us of all the places that we want to visit like Hawaii and Bora Bora.

3.     You love luxury homes.

There are lots of different and beautiful homes in Florida because it is a vacation destination for so many people. Vacation homes, luxury villas, rental houses are plentiful all over Florida.

4.     Seafood makes your mouth water.

If you are always in the mood for seafood, and even go as far as ordering oysters in Ohio, then you’ll really be in for a treat in Florida. Orlando has some of the best restaurants in the world, and they source some of the best seafood from the Atlantic and the Gulf coast. You might even think about making some lobster thermidor in your gourmet kitchen that comes included in many rental homes and rental apartments.

5.     You like taking care of yourself.

We know that our jobs and our families often get in the way of exercising and eating right. However, in Florida, there are so many opportunities for you to play sports and eat delicious, fresh, and healthy meals. There are so many tennis, volleyball, and basketball courts. There are running tracks and pools and fitness centers around every corner. Fresh produce means that all of your healthy meals will be crisp and delicious.

6.     You have a thing for Disney.

Let’s face it, Disney is a magical place. Its hard not to be touched by the film giants flicks, so everyone can relate and have a good time when they enter the Magic Kingdom. Many rental houses and rental condos are conveniently located just a few minutes away.

7.     You can party all night.

Okay, okay, this might not be true for most of us anymore, but that doesn’t mean we’ve completely lost it. There are lot of venues that come alive in Florida and they range from mild to extreme. So there’s something for everyone’s taste, no matter what the clock says.

8.     You love to travel, but have never been to Florida.

I think for a lot of people, Florida doesn’t top their lists of travel destinations because it’s so close. Lots of people make trips around the world for similar experiences that they would get in Florida. It’s not just for retirees anymore. Rental properties in Orlando can be really fun and really inexpensive.

9.     You need a tan.

We all look good with an even bronzing, but who has the time? Since the sun is always out in Florida, you can be sure you won’t miss out on your opportunity. Lots of vacation villas and rental homes have private pools, next to which you can relax and tan and jump in to cool off. Remember to bring sunblock!
