Welcome to the Sunshine State
There’s a reason the Sunshine State is the tourism capital of the world and the third-most populous state in the country. As a Florida resident, you’re never far from the world’s best beaches, theme parks and attractions (and their Florida resident discounts) and cultural arts. Factor in our favorable tax rate and entrepreneurial spirit, and it’s easy to see why so many individuals, families and businesses choose to make Florida their home.
- One of only nine U.S. states without state income tax
- More than 170 state parks that offer hiking, fishing, canoeing, camping and so much more
- Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando, Legoland, Busch Gardens, SeaWorld, Kennedy Space Center, Daytona International Speedway, the mermaids of Weeki Wachee and the Florida Museum of Natural History … all just a car ride away
- Hundreds of miles of legendary beaches to enjoy year-round
Building healthier communities, which lead to healthier future generations.
From the natural beauty of our wide-open trails, to the hospitality of our tight-knit community, to the stores we love and the new ones to discover, it’s all here.
