Happy Valentine’s Day! Whether you’re scrambling to put together special dinner plans or are planning fun activities with the family, this Valentine’s Day might be the perfect time to reflect on why you live in—and love—your Central Florida home and community. We’re sharing our six big reasons in today’s blog… but be sure to come up with your own list, too!
Small town charm
When many people think of Florida, many things may come to their mind—beaches, theme parks and booming retirement cities among them! And while we have and hold pride for all of these things, we know there is much more than meets the eye when it comes to Central Florida living. One point of pride for us here in Central Florida is our abundance of small town charm. In cities like Eustis and Mount Dora (to name just a couple), residents and visitors alike get to enjoy all the charm and closeness of a small town community—while never being far from bigger cities or attractions.
A mix of fun
As we have just mentioned, there is all sorts of fun to be had here in Central Florida—and your average weekend fun depends on what you’re in the mood for that day! You can enjoy a leisurely stroll downtown, drive to a nature park, go shopping or relax in your neighborhood… it’s up to you. Central Florida residents never have to sacrifice one type of fun for another, and that’s part of what makes our region so unique.
If you have ever been to a state park in the Central Florida region, you know just how breathtaking the natural landscapes and wildlife can be. A day spent hiking, swimming or camping in one of our many parks is easily accomplished and very rewarding.
Craving a change for the day? For residents with families—or those who love to embrace their inner thrill seeker—Central Florida’s variety of nearby theme parks makes it a perfect spot for “staycationers” who never have to travel far for an enjoyable break from the everyday.
One of the biggest reasons we love living here in Central Florida is the sheer amount of beautiful homes to choose from. We enjoy well-constructed and designed homes perfect for settling down—at a lower cost and with a little more backyard room than many others in the state!
Pleasant weather all year round
Weather is one of the top reasons people come to our neck of the woods, and it’s plain to see why. Our mild winters are a fantastic alternative to the harsh conditions up north, and our hot summer days provide the perfect backdrop for trips to the beach, dips in the pool, and just about any type of outdoor activity.
While Valentine’s Day is traditionally for showing your love to those in your life, we think it’s also a great chance to show love for your home and community. Tell us in the comments below why you love living here in Central Florida!
