Why has low-key Jacksonville emerged as perhaps Florida’s most desirable relocation destination? Well, there are its pristine beaches, its access to the St. Johns River and Intracoastal Waterway, its lively arts and sports scenes, its sweet southern charm and its surprisingly affordable homes. And that’s just for starters.
Tampa Bay / West Coast
One of the most dynamic and fast-growing metro areas in the country has all the lifestyle attributes relocators are looking for. But if sun, surf and sports attract people to the region, plenty of other cultural and recreational opportunities—as well as strong job growth and a thriving economy—keep them here.
Tampa Bay / Military
One of the most military-friendly regions in the country is the Tampa Bay area on Florida’s Gulf Coast. It’s home to MacDill Air Force Base, the headquarters of the U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM), the largest Coast Guard Air Station in the nation, Air Station Clearwater and the James A. Haley Veterans Hospital.
