Washington State to Florida Movers
Moving to Florida from Washington State
Many people are choosing to leave Washington state for various reasons, and at Apex Moving, we’ve noticed many of them moving to Florida.
The Sunshine State is attractive to Washington residents because it seems to be the exact opposite – it’s sunny year-round, warm, tropical and offers white sand beaches next to the ocean.
With 200 days of sunshine per year, Florida can get hot in the summers, the weather is pleasant, averaging around 70 year-round. The nice weather makes it easy for Floridians to enjoy the outdoors in any season.
Florida is home to over 663 miles of beaches, including world-renowned Clearwater Beach, Palm Beach, Destin and Siesta Key – just to name a few! Whether you like relaxing in the sun or surfing the waves, there are endless opportunities in Florida.
There are plenty of other outdoor activities to enjoy in Florida, too. Jet skiing, sailing, snorkeling, diving and boating are all popular pastimes. Golfing, biking, and hiking are available for those who want to get away from the beach.
There is no shortage of entertainment in Florida, either! Famously known for Walt Disney World, Florida is home to other attractions like Universal Studios, Sea World, Legoland, the Kennedy Space Center, and many more.
Compared to Washington, Florida’s cost of living is affordable. The cost of living in Tampa is 72% lower than it is in Seattle, and St. Petersburg is 43% less expensive. Florida’s real estate costs are lower and Florida residents face a lower overall tax burden since there is no state income tax.
A Look at Popular Destinations in Florida
Miami: Miami is known for its party scene, home to many clubs and restaurants. The city’s diverse culture, colorful architecture, nightlife and climate make it the most vibrant and culturally diverse city in Florida as well as one of the largest international business hubs in the world.
Jacksonville: Jacksonville is the largest metro area in Florida and offers its residents beautiful beaches, with over 850 miles of coastline. St. Augustine and Amelia Island are close, too, and are great for a day trip out of the city. Jacksonville hosts many music festivals throughout the year and is considered the birthplace of southern rock.
Tampa: Tampa is a popular destination for out-of-state relocations due to its thriving economy and low cost of living. It’s perfect for baseball lovers, too – it’s the home of Major League Baseball’s New York Yankees spring training every year. Many local businesses and entrepreneurs thrive in Tampa, creating many jobs and drawing young professionals to the city.
