"Florida is becoming a place where professionals can flourish."

We’ve all dreamed of living in a tropical paradise at one point or another. Well, how about now?

Florida isn't simply a place to go once you've stopped working— it's quickly becoming a place where professionals can flourish.

New York Daily News reports 78% of people who moved from New York to Florida from 2007 to 2011 were under the age of 50, and among the highest proportions of people moving were those aged 21, 24, and 28.

Florida also has no individual income tax– making it a more attractive and more affordable place to live.

Clearly, the sunshine state is one of the best places to be but where? Here are some of the best cities to live in Florida and some of our favorite neighborhoods:

Coconut Grove

Coconut Grove lies on the outskirts of Miami and boasts beautiful landscapes and breath-taking views. With restaurants, bars and big festivals and events, it’s a lively place to be on a Friday or Saturday night. But the best part about Coconut Grove is the variety of housing options. Looking for a high-rise apartment complex? Done. Or how about a little cottage on the beach? There are plenty of those as well.
