In the last couple years, Florida has been the place to be! With thousands of migrants coming in every month, Florida is growing faster than ever before. In this article, we’ll discuss where these migrants are coming from and where are the hottest places in the sunshine state.
When looking at people who swapped driver’s licenses from January to April in 2022, the majority of migrants came from the New England area in a very steep manner. While California saw a bit more than 9,600 swaps, states like New York saw nearly 62,000 swaps, with New Jersey right behind at around 11,000. These are primarily due to the rise in popularity of remote work, allowing those who live in more expensive cities to take advantage of the lower cost of living and taxes in Florida.
This has also led to the expansion of business primarily seen in the Miami area. Since 2021, venture capital funds in the city have doubled to more than $4.6 billion and 2021 saw 135,000 applications for new companies in Miami-Dade county, a 58% increase since 2019. Other popular spots such as Orlando and Tampa have also seen incredible rises, but not to the same degree as in Miami.
