Considering relocating to or within the state of Florida? No need to wait until retirement to enjoy the sunny and warm climate, world-renowned beaches, and attractions. Florida is one of a few states that charges no state income tax, and our cost of living typically trends below the national average, depending on where you decide to call home.


Jacksonville, also known as the River City, is the largest city in the state of Florida and boasts the largest urban park system in the country. Home to spectacular golf courses and host of the annual THE PLAYERS Championship, Jacksonville also offers numerous other sporting events including the NFL Jacksonville Jaguars, minor league baseball, hockey, basketball, and soccer. If college football is your preference, Jacksonville also hosts the SEC Florida/Georgia game and college Bowl Games. About a 20-minute drive to the beach from downtown, you have plenty of options for fishing, watersports, and boating, not only offshore in the Atlantic Ocean but also in the St. Johns River and Intracoastal Waterway. Grab the family and head to the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens or check out the U.S. Navy Flight Demonstration Team—The Blue Angels—at the annual air show. There are plenty of housing options in Northeast Florida, from new construction to historic homes. You could choose a location close to historic St. Augustine or at the beach.
