Moving to Florida
Until the middle of the 20th century Florida was the least populated State in the south of the United States. Now everything has changed. The population density of "The Sunshine State" has grown to become 8th in America.
The English name of Florida came from a simplified version of the Spanish name for the region. In 1513, explorer Juan Ponce de León was struck by the splendor of the blooming peninsula and named the new land "La Florida" meaning the blooming land.
Florida is not only rich in flowers. People are moving to Florida to work in the tourism, agriculture, mining and industry sectors.
About sixty million tourists come to Florida every year attracted by the mild climate, unique natural sites, numerous historical locations and tourist attractions.
Many older people enjoy their relocation to FL thanks to its tropical climate with very mild winters and hot summers.
The whole State of Florida is within the Atlantic lowland which means that there are a lot of lakes, rivers, streams and wetlands. A lot of people come to FL to visit the Everglades National Park, Biscayne, Dry Tortugas National Park and the Canaveral National Seashore. Numerous hotels along the beautiful sandy beaches of Florida are filled with people relaxing or enjoying a little water adventure with the area attracting diving enthusiasts. The lakes, rivers and coastal waters of the state are famous for their fishing and attract people from around the world every year.
If you work in agriculture and are moving to Florida then you will find a warm welcome. FL is the biggest producer of citrus in America and the demand is always growing. With recent booms in the organic fruit sector many new varieties are now being produced and opportunities to get in on this action are plentiful. Aside from citrus they also grow tobacco, sugarcane, strawberries, corn, beans, tomatoes and various vegetables.
The state is very well developed for commercial fishing (shrimp, crab, lobster, clams).With access to so much coastline commercial ports and specialized fish farms are accounting for a significant portion of the economy.
For those people whose profession or interest is connected with the chemical industry then moving to FL will also provide the opportunity to advance or begin your career. With the largest deposits of phosphates, a valuable raw material for the chemical industry, in the United States located in the central part of the state in an area known as the Bone Valley mineral mining and processing is providing a large number of vacancies.
When you are packing your bags for your relocation to Florida do not take a lot of warm clothes. Even in the winter time frosts are a big rarity in this state.
