by Victoria W 15 Things You Miss The Most When You Leave Florida
I’ve never lived anywhere other than Florida, but I have spent a few weeks here and there in other places. Florida has a lot incredible things you can’t find anywhere else. So if you’re thinking about moving, remember all these things you’ll miss:
1. Lots of sunshine
A lack of sunshine can even cause depression.
2. Wearing flip-flops or going barefoot almost year-round
Folks in some other places will look at you like your crazy if you try this.
3. Rain will no longer come out of nowhere and disappear 15 minutes later
Believe it or not, in some places it actually rains all day. Sounds awful!
4. Being surrounded by water
We tend to get a little spoiled by all the gorgeous beaches, rivers and lakes in our backyards. There's always a pool nearby in the summer, too.
5. Disney World
It's easy to forget how nice it is to be so close to magical places like this, especially if you have kids.
6. The best Cuban sandwiches ever
Do you really think you'll find one like this up north?
7. Say goodbye to warm winters
No more holidays in shorts and flip-flops, and you might even have to shovel snow.
8. Green, green everywhere
With all of our sunshine and water, plants just love it here year-round. Try living somewhere where there's desert or harsh winters, and you'll miss being surrounded by everything green as far as the eye can see.
9. Key lime pie
The abominations that you'll find trying to pass for this delicious dessert will make you want to cry.
10. Palm Trees
I can't even imagine walking outside and not seeing palm trees. If you live here long enough, they make you feel at home.
11. World-Class Fishing
If you like fishing, or seafood for that matter, you will be pretty disappointed when you move to the Midwest.
12. Pub Subs
You know you'll miss having Publix subs for lunch whenever you want.
13. The Keys
I bet wherever you move to won't have anything as fun and interesting (not to mention beautiful) as the Florida Keys.
14. Florida's awesome weirdness
Gators, manatees, mermaids...there are a lot of little things you probably don't even realize you'll miss.
15. Perfect sunsets
Whether you're at the beach or stuck in traffic, you can catch an amazing show at sundown. You won't find these sunsets anywhere else.
