Did you know that a thousand people move to Florida each day? So yes, moving to Florida might not be a new and original concept, but all those people can’t be wrong.

If you are still unsure about whether you should relocate to the Magic City, keep on reading and we guarantee – we will manage to convince you.

Living in Miami is Affordable

Perhaps you are currently sitting in your home in San Francisco, thinking, Miami can’t be that cheap. Well we have a surprise for you – the difference between taxes in Florida and California equals a yearly income of a McDonald’s employee! The monthly rent for a 900 square feet home with furniture revolves around $1,400. That might not sound too cheap, but what about this – personal income tax in Florida is – zero! This makes Florida one of only seven states in the country with no income tax. Sounds pretty amazing, doesn’t it?

Food in Miami is Delicious

Once you move to Miami and decide to take a walk around your neighborhood, you will soon realize – good food is everywhere around you. Some of the best restaurants in Miami include:
- Area 31  – for all the seafood lovers out there;
- Versailles  – for those of you who enjoy Cuban cuisine
- Blue Collar  – with traditional American meaty foods
- Pubbelly – traditional Asian food with a touch of America
- Full Bloom  – a restaurant with delicious vegan meals.
If you want to find more great restaurants in Miami, we encourage you to go out and explore your new home city once you relocate.

Choosing a Neighborhood in Miami

This one might be a little tricky. Miami has a lot of great neighborhoods. Visiting all of them and shortlisting those which suit your taste would probably take months, if not years. For this reason, we at Cross Country Moving Company have decided to narrow the search down for you. Without further ado, here are some of the best Miami neighborhoods to live in:
- Bal-Harbour. This neighborhood is made for young, energetic people who love shopping, going to the beach, or going out. We have to say, it is pretty loud.
- Bay Harbour Island. This is a quickly-growing neighborhood that offers numerous employment opportunities. It is home to a K-8 school, as well as numerous shops and restaurants. It is on the more expensive side.
- Coconut Grove. This is the oldest residential area of Miami and it still has some of its historical charm. It is hip, energetic, and inviting. It also hosts numerous festivals throughout the year.
- Brickell. This neighborhood is a mixture of a residential and a financial area. It has plentiful employment opportunities, as well as a lot of amenities in near vicinity. It is mostly populated by young professionals and businessmen.
- Miami Lakes. This suburb area is constantly growing. It provides one of the highest living standards in the state. It offers plentiful educational opportunities and is known as being the most beautiful residential area in Miami. It also boasts a very low crime rate.

The Weather in Florida is Amazing

Miami belongs to the tropical monsoon climate zone. Its winters are warm and dry, with average temperatures in January around 68 degrees. After winter, the wet season usually begins in May, and ends in October. During this time, temperatures are usually between 80 and 95 degrees. The humidity is very high, and thunderstorms are relatively frequent. Miami has officially never seen snowfall. From June to December, Miami experiences a hurricane season.
Before you start packing your belongings for your relocation to Miami, we suggest organizing a yard sale and getting rid of all those winter clothes you won’t need. Keep your umbrella, though.

Miami Culture
