It’s no secret that Florida is destination numero uno during the chilly season. What you might not know is that there’s more to the famed Florida lifestyle than endless days of sunshine and Mai Tai’s by the pool.
The Sunshine State is jam packed with world-class events and activities. It’s no wonder folks escaping the cold migrate back every single winter.
Here are the top “can’t miss” happenings from each Taylor Morrison Florida Division from now through the start of spring.
Gentlemen, Start Your Engines
There’s no better time to visit Orlando real estate than the weekend of the Daytona 500. It’s called the Great American Race for a reason!
