I Found My Tropical Paradise!

I have been living in Princeton Florida for a few years now, and my only regret is I didn't find this slice of paradise sooner. Located at the very bottom of the Sunshine State, there is certainly no shortage of outdoor activities here in Princeton. I'm minutes from the stunning Biscayne Bay, a place where you can enjoy snorkeling, sailing, and fishing, or just lying on the beach and soaking up the rays.

I can get to Miami in less than an hour, and dance the night away and the most happening nightclubs in the country. The dining is spectacular in the southeast, and the best areas in Princeton certainly involve something to do with water. Between the Everglades and other state parks in the region, I never have time to be bored in Florida.

Things move slower in the Princeton area, and that is just how I like it. I can drop the top and hit the Seven Mile Bridge to Key West and enjoy some of the most scenic views from a vehicle possible.
