Those four words that we all love doing –  going on a vacation. Spending time away from our daily lives  to enjoy what’s around us. To live in the moment and explore a new adventures is what many families like to do. I know for myself, we have spent many years traveling to the same vacation spot because our children loved it so much. We always looked forward to school breaks especially when the kids were out of school for the summer because let’s face it, vacations are mean’t to create memories. Over the years, we traveled two or three times a year to Florida before actually moving here. -And believe it or not, it was during our last vacation when we decided to make it our home. We loved it that much.



Living in Florida has it’s perks. Enjoying the warm weather year round is one of the many reasons why people like us, move here. Even though millions of visitors flock to Florida each year for some rest and relaxation, many of them also purchase a vacation home while they’re here.
