GOING to Florida this year during the Christmas season can only be achieved via land if you haven’t booked any domestic or international flight yet. Booking a flight or even a hotel suite in this global state needs to take at least two months before one’s actual arrival and stay here. Once you’ve done that, you can choose any of the big cities you want to visit. If you are a social activist and are very concerned with Florida politics, you may want to go to Tallahassee because it’s the seat of government in the state. If you’re a fan of the Orlando Magic, then you may want to go to Orlando. But if you’re fascinated with the very successful state of life of the Cuban refugees, then go to Miami-Dade. Or if you simply want to be overwhelmed with the length of the Seven Mile Bridge, then you may want to hop from one Florida Key to another.
So the best alternative in coming here is via land from Alabama. When your plan this Christmas season is for a road trip to Florida, then better accompany all of your childhood neighbors with you and get them cramped in your car. This can be an entirely fun experience because you’ll be enjoying the yummy sights and food on the way. Besides, a road trip is never fun if you’re alone by yourself. Then there’s the practical consideration too. What if you’re all alone and no one can help you out if your tire’s busted? It’s also very safe to accompany someone on a road trip to help with the driving when you’re almost dozing already. And above all, don’t ever forget to fill up your tank to the brim. Also, take lots of bottled water with you because you need that all the way. By then, you’ll be ready for the road trip of your life.
This season is the most opportune time to go to Florida because on New Year’s Day, all roads lead to Orlando’s Capital One Bowl as the University of Michigan will take on the homegrown Florida State in a football thriller. So this early, hunt now for tickets online because they’ll be surely sold out before you can even blink. Just make sure that the online tickets are not jacked up to be considered already as profiteering.
Who knows, staying in Florida this Christmas season may even entice you to buy a home here. Maybe you can use that as a holiday home or maybe you can lease that to other vacationers as well. Just make sure it is strategically located in a very attractive place so that you won’t regret buying it in the first place. Do not worry about the ongoing real estate slump in the United States because this can very well work to your advantage if you are the buyer of a piece of property. But among the states in the country today, Florida is perceived to be the place where the real estate slump can easily recover. This is manifested in the confidence that cement manufacturing giant CRH has done. Based in London, CRH has expanded its cement business in Florida just this week at a whooping initial investment of $250 million. And as emphasized, it is just an initial investment.
