The United States first president, George Washington, would have many reasons to relocate to Florida. Below are some of the reasons I believe many of us would share his thoughts in why it is great to call Florida home, especially Central Florida. Central Florida may boast great theme parks but it is much more than that.
1. Before he became a general and The President of the United States, George Washington was a land surveyor. With the economy and residential building picking back up, George would have ample opportunity finding a surveying job right here in Central Florida.
2. The average annual low temperature in Washington D.C. is a balmy 46.6 degrees Fahrenheit. In Central Florida the average low is 64.3 degrees Fahrenheit. Who really wants to have to bundle up so many months out of the year? The fact that we can wear shorts in Florida practically year round makes living here attractive to just about anyone, including good ol’ George.
3. George Washington’s favorite sport was horseshoes. If he moved to Central Florida he would have a hard time choosing horseshoes over our sporting events. From the new Major League Soccer team, Orlando City Lions to our NBA Basketball team, the Orlando Magic to College Football Bowl Games in January (shameless plug for the UCF KNIGHTS who dominated in the Fiesta Bowl and an undefeated season) and of course spring training for major league baseball, he'll definitely have a hard time choosing horseshoes with all Central Florida has to offer.
4. Some of the world’s best beaches are in Florida. If George wanted to catch some waves (or some rays) at the beach he would be within two hours of the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean in either direction. Since he had fair skin though, SPF 50 would be a must!
