Where to Live
Florida is a big place. For stunning natural scenery and Southern-style charm, head north and explore the Panhandle and Gulf Coast. Meanwhile, Orlando and Tampa are home to numerous neighbourhoods with different personalities, from quiet suburbia to hip and trendy downtowns. For bright lights and bikinis, not to mention a thriving arts scene, head south to Miami, where Wynwood is an emerging area and South Beach is a celebration of neon glitz. Or head further south and live like Ernest Hemingway in the tropics of the Florida Keys. To find a Florida rental, try regional Craigslist sites (including Orlando, Miami, Key West and Tampa Bay) or online listings like the Orlando Weekly (orlandoweekly.kaango.com) and Miami New Times (miaminewtimes.com/classifieds).
Northern and central Florida enjoy a humid, sub-tropical climate, while the further south you venture, the more tropical it becomes. Brace yourself for the storms of summer and autumn, though most find Florida's warm climate enjoyable year-round. Gulf Coast Florida can experience extreme weather at times. Orlando, meanwhile, has two seasons: hot and rainy (May to September), dry and pleasantly warm (October to April).
