With a good portion of the country covered under many feet of snow, you might be thinking, "I can't possibly go through another Winter like this!". If so, maybe you will be wanting to re-locate to a warmer climate like Florida, or, more specifically, Orlando, Florida. The first thing you want to do is contact an Orlando Realtor in order to find the perfect home for you and your family. You might be surprised to know that Orlando is a part of Florida that has a rich history that dates back more than 150 years. Originally, it was much like any other part of our country, with cattle raising, Indian wars, gun fights and gambling. In 1880 the South Florida railroad extgended its line down to Orlando and that changed that area dramatically. Today, Orlando welcomes over more visitors than the population of California (over 43.3 million people). Although the area boasts the most theme parks and vacation spots than any other place, there are also great communities with both old-fashioned charm as well as cutting edge communities with excellent schools. This makes Orlando one of the most desirable destinations for anyone who is re-locating. There are job opportunities and a great environment to raise a family and spend your leisure time. One thing is for sure, your extended family will gladly come and visit you so make sure you get a home with extra room!
