Fly South For The Winter Or All Year Round
With Christmas coming, there are more things to look forward to and they're not all great. Winter is just around the corner and with it will come snow, ice, freezing temperatures and rising heating bills. Florida has always been a prime destination for those who want to escape the cold weather. It's perfect for retirees and young families looking to stretch their dollars in terms of real estate. There are still great deals to be had in Florida which will not only save you money on your home's purchase price, but in terms of taxes as well. I'm a huge history buff and I love investigating the history of places I have visited. For instance, Orlando, which is a great destination for vacations and for re-location, was a prime spot for raising cattle, not growing oranges. With the extension of the South Florida Railroad line, the citrus industry was able to expand and Orlando began to change rapidly. It was in the 1920s when tourism began to take hold. Now, Orlando is the number one vacation spot for people all over the world. As a result, there are fast-growing communities surrounding Orlando as well as vintage neighborhoods with homes to match. There are beautiful lakes, diverse restaurants and shopping as well as a threatre and sports complex. Even though Orlando is best known for it's seven major theme parks, an Orlando Real Estate Agent can show you that there's more to Orlando than Mickey Mouse.
