Quality of Life

Quality of Life

We might be in a rural part of central Florida, but we work a balance of nature and growth.

A multitude of natural springs, forests and waterways surround a rich and diverse industry base. You’re also close to several large metro areas: 250 miles from South Florida or Savannah, or less than 150  miles to deepwater ports in Jacksonville or Tampa.

You can distance yourself from traffic congestion and noise, and have more than enough room to start and grow your business.

We have one of the fastest growing economies in the country, a manufacturing base larger than the typical US average for an area of our size, and schools that have built significant career pathways for our future business leaders and talent.

Our communities are often spotlighted by online magazines and databases for being tax-friendly and affordable to live, with low crime rates.

Take a look at our eight cities and towns, any of which could be your new home, or continue below for an in-depth look at our quality of life.
