Florida is a wonderful state to live in. It has great weather, friendly people and it’s a safe area to raise a family in. Why wouldn’t anybody want to live there? That doesn’t mean that every single corner of the state is lovely, though. There are obviously going to be some parts that should be avoided and some parts that are much better than others. If you are considering a move to Florida, or if you are just thinking about relocating to a different city in the state, you should know which cities are best. Here is a handy list of some of the best cities in Florida.



Naples in southwest Florida is a very quiet and peaceful city to live in. It has a population of around twenty thousand but most of the homeowners have it as a second home, so during the summer months, it will be very empty. If you are a keen golfer then this is probably the best place for you as it has more golf courses than any other place in the whole country. It is also home to a historic downtown area that offers great dining experiences as well as a rich cultural scene. Having said that, you are at higher risk of damage during hurricanes and storms, so you’ll need to weigh that against the positives.


Tallahassee is the capital of Florida State and is an incredibly popular city indeed. The large Cuban population has given birth to hundreds of delicious fusion restaurants all over the city. It also has a vibrant arts and music scene, with lots of great galleries and performance venues everywhere. Each year the city hosts a number of different festivals and parades showcasing all of the brilliant talent in the city. If you are considering a move to Tallahassee, there are plenty of homes for sale at Joe Manausa real estate, so why not have a look and see what you can find.

Winter Springs

Winter Springs is a small town just outside of Orlando. It’s a great location because you get all of the benefits of being close to Orlando without having to be at the heart of the busy city. The crime rates are also a lot lower than they are in Orlando. If you enjoy all of the theme parks and other attractions that are in Orlando then you should definitely consider Winter Springs. You’ll even be close enough to commute if you wanted to work in the city. You are at lower risk of hurricane damage here and the schooling is very good. However, accidents on the routes into Orlando can cause major traffic incidents.

Palm Beach

Most people think of Palm Beach as being exclusively for the rich, but that isn’t the case. You can still enjoy the rich social lifestyles of the people in Palm Beach without shelling out millions of dollars for an expensive house. In fact, some condos will cost as little as $200,000, so not really much more expensive than anywhere else. During the winter months, the city really comes alive, but you will be exposed to the risk of flooding.
