The state has also been a long-time favorite for people looking to retire. This preference is mostly born out of a few factors. First of all, it’s called a Sunshine State for a reason, and who wouldn’t want to spend their years of freedom in the best weather possible, throwing in some great beaches, plenty of attractions, and plenty of quiet spots.

Another major reason is due to the fact that Florida is very tax-friendly when it comes to retirees, making the life of the elderly just that bit much easier, and of course, no state income tax. This gives the elderly the freedom to live their lives without Social Security benefits, pensions being taxed by the state. Making it a very preferable location for people to move later in life.
While the two aforementioned aspects are not only quite obvious but well known and loved, there are some aspects of Florida that you might not know unless you start looking into what makes the state what it is. One of such is the excellent Citrus.
