Top 5 Reasons People Move to Northeast Florida

July 28, 2022


With the help of the pandemic and the onset of work-from-home life, more people are moving to Northeast Florida than ever before. Simply drive through all the beautiful neighborhoods and see how special this area is. “Northeast Florida has it all! It provides the perfect setting to enjoy time with family and friends while providing plenty of opportunities to try new things,” shares Davidson Realty President, Sherry Davidson. 


1. Water

While living near the ocean is a dream for many, residents of Northeast Florida have the privilege of living just miles from the beach and have the added bonus of living close to the St. Johns River and Intracoastal waterways. This abundance of water provides countless opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors. 


2. Weather

Alongside the beautiful beaches attracting people to Northeast Florida is the weather. While it gets colder than parts of South Florida, the average annual temperature is still 70 degrees in Jacksonville. Mild winters and balmy summers make Northeast Florida weather basically perfect. With an average of 221 sunny days per year, what more could you want?


3. Financial 

Your hard-earned money stretches further in Florida. As one of a handful of states in the United States with no state income tax or estate tax, living in Northeast Florida has many financial benefits. With so many communities and various housing options, finding a home that fits your budget is a breeze.  


4. Sports

If you are a sports fan, Northeast Florida is the place for you! Downtown Jacksonville is home to the Jacksonville Jaguars, Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp, and Jacksonville Iceman. Travel south to Ponte Vedra Beach to visit The Tournament Players Club at Sawgrass, one of the world’s most renowned golf courses and home of the annual PGA tour stop, The Players Championship. Grab some friends and get some tickets, the sports scene is thriving in Northeast Florida. 


5. Location

Northeast Florida is uniquely located just a short drive away from many exciting and historic destinations. In just two hours, you can visit Orlando, to the south, or Savannah, to the north. Destinations like Charleston, Atlanta, Miami, and Tampa are ideal if you are looking for a fun road trip. 


It is clear to see that Northeast Florida is special. If you are interested in calling Northeast Florida home, call the real estate experts at Davidson Realty today at (904) 940-5000.

You are reading this either as a fortunate resident, a valued visitor or someone yearning to make the move.


In any event, this is one of the times that our place truly shines. December, January, February and March usually offer many blue-sky, beautiful days with mild temperatures in the 60’s to 70’s – perfect for getting out-and-about to enjoy the unique features of our region.


Even though we are ocean-bound to the east, there are still numerous north, south and west opportunities to explore, visit and experience – either as day-trips or for overnight weekends. Additionally, there are many nationally and internationally renowned events to attend – from the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, to the Daytona 500 and The Players Championship.


My favorite place to share with visiting family and friends is the Georgia Coast. Cumberland Island National Seashore, Jekyll Island State Park’s Millionaire’s Village, St. Simons Island and of course, Historic Savannah are all fabulous destinations. If you want to experience the Coast in a unique and somewhat rustic fashion, try staying at Little St. Simons Island or in the Geechee/Gullah Hog Hammock community on Sapelo Island.
