like i said, parts of fla are very different depending on what region of fla you are in.

"Florida, the place where everyone vacations and most everyone decides to buy a home in and retire to. Florida is a gorgeous state with more beaches and attractions than you could dream possible. Whatever your age or familial situation, there is undoubtedly a community or area of Florida that will be perfect for you.

Look at Home Buying in North Florida
You are determined to move to Florida, and who wouldn’t want to? The state is known for its weather and beaches, theme parks and friendly inhabitants. The different parts of Florida are very different though, and the weather and cost of living does very from region to region. Though you know you want to move to Florida, it is imperative to understand the lifestyle specific to the different parts of the state.

For instance, the common lifestyle in the northern part of Florida has been compared to the lifestyle of Southerners. The most popular cities in northern Florida are Jacksonville and Tallahassee, but obviously there are countless other lovely areas to live. The weather in northern Florida can get cool in the winter, but most inhabitants like that they get to experience a change in seasons, slight as it may be.

If you enjoy traveling across the states, then northern Florida could be a great spot for home buying for you, because you will have easy access by car to Georgia, Tennessee and North and South Carolina.

Buying a Home in Central Florida
Buying a home in northern Florida may not completely appeal to you because of cooler weather or other factors, so perhaps look to central Florida. Central Florida is the ideal location for buying a home if you have small children for one primary reason being the theme parks. Popular cities to live in central Florida are Tampa and Orlando. As everyone knows, Orlando Florida houses Disney World as well as Universal Studios and every fun vacation locale your children dream of attending."

The north part of the state is a great option. Land, housing and jobs are available, while crime is less than the metro areas. I have enjoyed the Navarre area since 1998 and this area continues to grow and develop.

Winters are cooler, no snow, just a bit cold for a few days and is over. Take time to experience the northern part of the state is unique and everyone is welcome....
