It offers 1800 miles of coastline, 1250 golf courses, and 700 or more camp grounds. Florida also is one of the homes to Mickey Mouse and Cinderella in the wonderful Walt Disney resort and theme park. Florida offers something for all ages. Climates of balmy summers and mild winters are one of the top reasons why many choose to retire here.

Florida was discovered in 1513 by Ponce de Leon and made a US territory in 1821. In 1845 the US made Florida a state, and now is one of the most visited areas.

Florida is home to some 1,800 miles of coastline. Some of the favorite hot spots for young adults are Coca beach, Daytona Beach, and Fort Lauderdale.
