What comes to mind when you think of Florida? Sunny skies, sandy beaches, vacation destinations galore, and oranges are just a few things that come to my mind. Florida has just about everything in order to appeal to nearly anyone. Did you know that, on top of being the number one citrus producer, Florida is also the number one producer of watermelons in the U.S.? The list can quite literally go on and on. With economic benefits including a low cost of living and a great tax base(NO state income tax!), Florida is an excellent place to invest in and have an abundance of activities for all ages to enjoy in the enormous amounts of beautifully sunny weather the Sunshine State has to offer at your fingertips. Let’s start by taking a tour around the state and see what all the hype is about!
Starting in the southern portion of the state, you’ll find yourself in the Everglades – a national park reserved to protect over 60 threatened or endangered species. Here you’ll have opportunities to take scenic airboat rides through swamp lands, see American alligators and crocodiles, and taste some delicious gator. If you head north, up the west coast of Florida, you will catch some breathtaking west coast beach sunsets over the Gulf water.
Some big attractions in the northern parts of Florida include the National Museum of Naval Aviation near Pensacola, wildlife parks, beaches, and the historic Saint Augustine. You will find a more historic and scenic essence in northern Florida where you can visit old towns like Micanopy, and tour different natural springs and nature preserves from the northwest part of Florida to the east coast. Traveling down the east coast you can pass through Daytona Beach, venturing inland to Orlando where Universal Studios is located, and then back down to the bottom of the state to Miami – another hot tourist destination.
From warm waters to sandy white beaches and rare, breathtaking west-coast sunsets over the water to big cities such as Orlando and Miami to the Everglades, Florida is one of the top-listed tourist destinations. You’re just a day’s trip from Orlando, Miami or Tampa in the Highlands area, having close access to view the breathtaking sunsets over the water on the west in areas near Levy or Taylor, or being able to taste some delicious gator near the Everglades in Hendry. Just imagine having your own piece of this beautiful state to make your investment dreams a reality.
