From the outside, you might think the Sunshine State is all beaches and magical theme parks and fun in the sun all the time. It’s not like we don’t appreciate those things, but if you’re planning to relocate here, we’re here to tell you that it’s a little more complicated than that. Here are a few things longtime Floridians wish they could tell anyone new to our state or hoping to move here:

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately.
