Antiquing. Like a good flea market, antiques? Florida is home to plethora of flea markets and antique friendly towns. Lakeland, Lake Wales, Webster, Mount Dora and many other areas throughout the state offer a wide variety of antiques.
Thrill. Of course we can't leave out the amusement parks. Walt Disney World of course is a major attraction and a favorite of the grandkids, but in addition that there are several other theme parks providing lots of entertainment for all ages.
Cheap Living. It's not the cheapest, but certainly is not expensive. Sales tax is 6.5% and we do not have any state income tax.
Golf. You never seem to be far from a golf course. Both private and public courses offers you fun from the simple par three courses to some of the most challenging pro designed courses.
Weather. Hey, this is why we are here! Winter temps from the top of the state to the bottom averages from the 60,s to the 80's. You can check the weather channel, but you'll find there's no snow for us! So leave those winter coats at home and bring your tee shirts and shorts!
You will never be bored in Florida.
