Amazon founder Jeff Bezos has announced that he is leaving Seattle after nearly 30 years in order to move back to Miami.

Bezos mentioned that the operations of his space exploration company, Blue Origin, are shifting to Cape Canaveral, Florida, and that he and his fiancée love Miami.

The move is also motivated by the desire to be closer to his parents who recently returned to Florida.

Bezos expressed his emotional attachment to Seattle, where he started Amazon, but stated that Miami now holds a special place in his heart.

“Seattle has been my home since 1994 when I started Amazon out of my garage,” Bezos wrote.

“I’ve lived in Seattle longer than I’ve lived anywhere else and have so many amazing memories here. As exciting as the move is, it’s an emotional decision for me. Seattle, you will always have a piece of my heart.”

The announcement comes after Bezos purchased multimillion-dollar properties in Florida.

The move may also have financial benefits for Bezos, as Florida does not have a capital gains tax.
