Many North Americans are moving to Florida to retire. After years of living in colder climates with snow and ice, these people have decided that moving to Florida to retire is a good idea. Here are some of the reasons North Americans are moving to Florida to retire.
- NO SNOW OR ICE
Believe it or not, even Northern Florida rarely gets cold enough to see snow or ice. This means there is scraping the windshield or shoveling snow before getting the car ready to drive into town.
- WARM WEATHER
In the winter months, the average daytime temperatures in Florida range from mid-sixties to upper seventies. This means that people moving to Florida can hit the golf course every day!
- BEAUTIFUL BEACHES
With 8,436 miles of coastline there are lots of places to enjoy going to the beach. Almost all of Florida’s coast is made up of white sand beaches making it the top beach state in the country. No matter where people move to Florida to retire, there is a beach within just a few hours of home.
- SUNSHINE STATE
North Americans retiring to Florida will enjoy plenty of sunshine. Even though Florida is known as the “Sunshine State”, there are 5 other states who have more sun-hour days than Florida. However, Southern Florida sunshine is more intense as it is part of the sub-tropics. And, the average daily temperatures in the mid-seventies is higher than any other state.
- DIVERSE CULTURE
From Europe to Asia and to South America, there are many cultures who have settled throughout Florida. This diversity awaits those who are retiring to Florida and enjoy meeting other cultures.
