Living in FL has been a great experience from the start, especially since I have seen odd parts of the state over the years.
My family settled in Tampa for a few years before buying a modern home in Sarasota where my parents still live.
During school I was living in Fort Lauderdale, but afterward I moved southward upon finding a job in Cocoa. It’s a great area to be in, especially having both the Kennedy plus Cape Canaveral Space Stations within driving distance of my apartment. There are several shops on Merritt Island plus in Old Cocoa Village. If you drive toward the ocean, you’ll find the highly coveted Cocoa Beach. Occasionally I take my kayak plus explore the Banana River Aquatic Preserve with a single of my friends. There are plenty of people to meet if you go out at night, but it’s also good enjoying FL without being in a big metropolitan town prefer Tampa or Miami. However, Cocoa is toward the north in FL, plus is famous for an event called the “Great Freeze” in which citrus crops were lost plus farmers were forced to seek other employment. Although this was in the last years of the 1740s, Coca still experiences frigid weather from time to time. I have kept thinking about getting a space heating system for my apartment, but I put it off every year. This year I couldn’t find a space heating system even though it was still the Last week of November. I drove to Titusville just to find a space heater, but then we left empty handed as all of the hardware stores there were out of heating device as well.
