Florida’s I- 95 Corridor
Blessed by its peninsular nature between the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean, Florida is lined with 825
miles of beaches. ;is super salt-life setting is just one
reason 112. 8 million tourists visited the state in 2016,
the sixth-consecutive record year for Florida tourism.
To be sure, Florida’s bevy of beautiful beaches
have made the Sunshine State a popular destination.
Packaged with year-round sunshine and a heavenly
climate in the fall and winter months in particular,
Florida is hard to beat as the next great place to live,
retire, and play.
;row in a dynamic job market and overall economy,
no state income tax, and tremendous real estate values
relative to much of the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast,
and that explains why Florida’s population added
367,525 people in 2016, the second-largest gain in sheer
numbers a;er Texas, according to recent U.S. Census
Now, with an overall population of just over 20. 6
million, Florida continues to outdistance New York as
the third largest state in the country. And this growth
shows no signs of slowing down, especially along the
fast-growing I- 95 corridor from Jacksonville south to
Palm Beach and Broward counties.
So, in the spirit of railroad and tourism magnate
Henry Flagler, who ;rst visited Jacksonville in 1878 and
paved the way for millions to enjoy Florida’s awesome
Atlantic Coast, enjoy this famous Florida stretch of I- 95
- starting just over the border in St. Marys, GA, and
ending some 280 miles later at the posh Palm Beaches.
