Best Small Town in Florida

What are some nice small towns in Florida?

Some nice small towns in Florida include:

 

There are, quite literally, hundreds of small towns all over the Sunshine State. It’s nearly impossible to list them all, however, some stand out above the rest in terms of small-town charm. Some of our favorites include places like Williston, a small town that is also home to world-famous springs. It’s considered a diver’s paradise, but it’s still got that quaint charm. Another favorite on our list is definitely Fort Pierce, an old fishing village built in the early 1900s. If you’re a fan of reefs and diving near reefs, this is the small Florida town for you - the diving here is insane! Hankering for more small-town goodness from the Sunshine State? Here are 12 more lovely small towns to explore.

Where are the best places to live in Florida? 

Some of the best places to live in Florida include:

 

There are a number of Florida towns that make the list as the cream of the crop. We won’t list them all here, of course, but some highlights from the list include Port St. Lucie, nestled along the Treasure Coast, Ocala, known to some as the horse capital of the world (seriously!), and Melbourne. Of course, some of our lovely larger cities also made the list, like Sarasota, Tampa, and Pensacola.

What is living in Florida like? 

Florida is a nature-lovers paradise, and the usually-mild weather is just the second-best reason to live here (the first-best reason is probably that we have countless miles of breathtaking beaches to lounge on and/or explore). It rains often during the summers, which can be hot and humid. We’re the home of Mickey Mouse himself - we’ve got both Walt Disney World and Universal Studios Orlando, and both parks draw in millions of visitors every year. Our local economy is in good shape, and it’s no wonder that Florida is one of the most popular states to retire in. Living here is rewarding and never boring; there’s so much to see and so much to do, and we couldn’t be prouder to call it home!
