Moving from Nashville, TN to Orlando, FL

Moving from Nashville, TN to Orlando, FL

You’ll surely love moving from Nashville to Orlando, “The City Beautiful”!

It’s time to leave the capital of The Volunteer State and trade it for something beautiful! The City of Orlando is Florida’s fifth-largest city, located inland with 249,562 residents who love their sunny home. The Theme Park Capital of the World is known far and wide for being home to the Walt Disney World Resort, the Universal Orlando Resort, SeaWorld, Wet ‘n Wild Water Park, and Gatorland! However, theme parks aren’t the only attraction to Orlando. Thanks to the city’s 52 million tourist visits every year, Orlando and the surrounding metro area cities of Davenport, Kissimmee, Altamonte Springs, and Winter Park, as well as the 2.1 million people living there have caught on to the craze, making the area much more accessible to locals and tourists alike! The symbol of Orlando, the fountain at Lake Eola, might as well be the Fountain of Youth, for everyday in sunny Florida makes you feel like a kid again! Come on down!

The trip from Nashville to Orlando

  • To successfully make the trip to your new home in the center of The Sunshine State, you must first drive 689 miles, a feat that will cost you 10 hours and 15 minutes of your time!
  • The trip won’t be bad, especially if you choose to busy yourself along the way! Cities like Chattanooga, Atlanta, Macon, and Gainesville are ones you’ll pass—did someone say fun?
  • Don’t miss Chattanooga’s Lookout Mountain featuring Rock City & the adjacent Ruby Falls! When in Atlanta, stop by the Georgia Aquarium, Zoo Atlanta, or the World of Coca-Cola!

The climate in Orlando

  • Orlando’s transitional climate aspires to be tropical, but hangs on the fringes of a humid subtropical climate like Nashville. You’ll soon learn of Florida’s two seasons: hot & hotter!
  • Spring and autumn are warm and balmy. Spring is the driest season and prone to the occasional wildfire, while autumn varies from year to year with sneaky cold fronts aplenty!
  • Mid-June marks the start of daily summer thunderstorms. While sometimes violent, these relieve stifling temperatures, like the July average high of 91.8 degrees F or record 101!
  • The aforementioned cold fronts send warm winter averages of 52 and 49 F to their frigid deaths reaching 32 F by mid-December! Watch out for sub-freezing mornings!

Navigating Orlando

  • LYNX is the regional local transit provider for Orange, Osceola, Seminole, Volusia, & Lake counties, with buses on 66 routes, 84,000+ riders and more than 4,440 stops each day!
  • Taxis are easily hailed on regular basis by a throng of independently owned cab companies such as United Taxi and Mears Transportation, or they can be found near all major resorts!
