Southeast is an exceptional place to live and work because a little piece of everything that makes Florida great is represented across these seven counties: Miles of bright blue ocean and sandy coastal beaches; five deep-water ports; four international airports; easy multi-modal access via rails and roads; a multicultural/multilingual workforce; outstanding educational institutions; world-class health care; and fun things to see and do.
