You Need to Ask Yourself These 3 Questions before Moving to South Florida

Have you considered moving to South Florida?

Life in the tropics is not for everyone. Before you make the big decision to take on a beachy lifestyle in South Florida, you may want to ask yourself these very important questions.

1. Are you willing to throw out your sock collection?

There’s a name for people who don’t own winter clothes: Floridians. With average winter temperatures in the 70’s, South Floridians have little use for their long johns. While summer temperatures climb into the 90’s (plus humidity), the locals know that the best way to combat the heat is to enjoy the view from the water. Whether it’s your own personal pool, the community’s clubhouse, or one of the world’s most stunning beaches, Floridians beat the heat in style.

If you want to embrace South Florida living, you’ll need to learn to get comfortable with bikinis and locally sourced coconut water (with an umbrella straw of course).

2. Will you be able to slow down and enjoy life?

Life is a vacation in South Florida, so sit back and enjoy the scenery. There’s nothing quite like sitting on the patio of your favorite South Florida restaurant and enjoying the weather with nothing to worry about. Like most tropical spots, South Florida customer service tends to be relaxed. But that’s no worry when you’re not in a hurry. South Florida is for those who want to slow down and enjoy each moment.

A melting pot of cultures means that you’ll always have good company in South Florida with plenty of new traditions to learn and the chance to share your own.

If you’re ready to give up the pace of city living, South Florida may be a good fit for you.

3. Do you like full service?

South Florida’s vacation lifestyle is not limited to palm trees and the weather. If you want to offload your chores and focus on enjoying life, South Florida may be the right place for you.

We read somewhere that residents of Boca Raton hire out more services than any other city in the country. Whether its housekeeping, lawn-mowing and landscaping, cleaning the pool, or installing a ceiling fan, you can get help with anything in South Florida for a reasonable price.
