"Quality of life" has different meanings to different people, but Northwest Florida offers something for everyone. Being a major tourist destination for the Southeastern United States, the region offers amenities typically found in large metropolitan areas—from world-class shopping and restaurants to cultural activities including symphonies, theatre, dance, museums, galleries, historic architecture, and festivals. The region’s landscape includes urban and rural, as well as everything in between, so residents have a virtually unlimited choice of communities in which to live.
Northwest Florida has a plethora of natural resources, among them its “sugar-white” beaches, which are consistently ranked among the best in the world, and the beautiful waters of the Gulf of Mexico—known as the "Emerald Coast". The region also has an abundance of salt water bays and estuaries, fresh water rivers and lakes, mineral springs, and parks and forests, which provide diverse ecosystems and a variety of year-round outdoor activities, including golf, boating, hiking, fishing, hunting, and virtually every water sport.
One of the reasons that many executives choose to locate companies in Northwest Florida is the region's unparalleled quality of life. Corporate executives often choose to move their residences here permanently, while others have second homes in the area, which allows them to enjoy the quality of life amenities of the region while managing their business enterprises here. Another advantage is the ease of recruiting employees to Northwest Florida. With more than 11 million people vacationing in the region each year, it is not a surprise that most prospective employees choose to accept jobs in the area once they visit.
Rare is the opportunity to locate a business in a region with such impressive business resources, as well as bountiful natural resources and beauty. Northwest Florida is the perfect location to work, live, and play.
