... Florida has the longest coastline in the contiguous United States.
... Florida is Spanish for "land of flowers."
Just about anyone can picture Florida with ease: warm beaches, theme parks, Disney World, and tons of places to eat, shop, and play. These easy, breezy visuals are just part of why over 21.5 million people call Florida home. Floridians are absolutely proud of their state, as they should be: with a median household income of $53,267 and NASA space launches in the proverbial backyard, what’s not to enjoy?
Major employers in the state include the United States Military, Disney, the Miami-Dade County Public School District, Publix, Florida Hospital, the Adventist Health System, and Royal Caribbean Cruises.
Speaking of cruises, Florida is often where cruises take off for longer journeys, making it a perfect travel stop. But if you prefer to stay on land, checking out the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge is a great idea. Skip over the mouse ears and explore over 1000 species of plants, 117 species of fish, and 330 unique species of birds in a protected sanctuary.
