There are plenty of great reasons to live in the Sunshine State, and it really does have something for everyone. Whether you’re a beach bum, a techie, a foodie, or something else, Florida is teeming with things to do and explore. Many Floridians also seem to be acutely aware of just how weird their state can be sometimes, and nowhere is that more apparent than on Twitter. To get a glimpse into life in Florida, trending Twitter tag #FloridaLife will give you laughs, awes, and a vigorous head nod of relatable solidarity.
If you’re having a gloomy day, the #FloridaLife thread on Twitter is bound to give you a laugh, especially if you’re a Sunshine State native, yourself. Highly relatable are the photos of random wildlife invading backyards, hurricane memes, and mad traffic.
One Twitter user posted a photo of a looming storm over the beach with the text, “Where y’all going, it’s just a category 1,” showing just how much it takes to really scare a Floridian from their beloved beach.
But the blessings of living in Florida are just as many as the quirks, like incredible sunsets, stunning beaches, and a compassionate community.
