WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW BEFORE YOU MOVE TO FLORIDA    

HISTORY & CULTURE

Welcome to the Sunshine State! Did you know Florida houses the oldest city in the country, St. Augustine? It was Juan Ponce de Leon, who gave the state its name, which translates to "Feast of Flowers".

FUN IN THE SUN

In addition to beach activities, Florida is home to Disney World! The "Happiest Place on Earth" is the state’s most popular tourist attraction. Florida residents enjoy a resident discount to Mickey’s homeland!

CLIMATE

Sub-tropical weather pervades north of Lake Okeechobee, while tropical weather affects the coasts. Lightning and hurricanes are common depending on location and season. Best of all - there's no snow!

DRIVERS LICENSE

Once you are settled, your next move should be to update your license. If it's still valid, then you won't be asked to take the road & written tests. Just go to any local DMV, fill out the forms and pay the fees.
