More people than ever are moving to Orlando, as Penske Truck Rental announce its Top Moving Destinations list, unveiling the top 10 cities receiving the most inbound one-way consumer rentals in 2022.

More and more people are embarking on a move now, with a continued migration of folks from the Midwest to sunnier climates.

Houston, Texas and Las Vegas, Nevada sustained the top two positions from the 2021 list as consumers continue to seek out warmer living locations, but this year's list boasts more representation from Florida, as Jacksonville joins the list for the first time alongside Orlando who have moved from eighth position to number three top destination in the nation.

Not surprisingly, Orlando has been a top destination, placing in the top 10 every year since the inception of the list in 2010.
