What is the first feeling which you get when the name Florida is mentioned to you? Well yes, the state has indeed got a sufficient share of madness where the Miami cannibal attack of 2012, the mom-daughter porn case of 2013, the governor’s strict opposition to Barack Obama’s Obamacare are worth mentioning. But despite all those incidents which are still fresh in the memory of the Floridians, there are still numerous reasons to fall in love with Florida, also known as the Sunshine State.
From the amazing food to the splendid culture and breathtaking scenery, there are numerous things which make Florida just the place to be. Here is a guide to traveling to Florida which will discuss the viable reasons behind people loving this oddly-shaped state.
#1: Majority of the people are envious about Florida’s weather
Even if it is a warm day in New York and the northern portion of America spent it dealing with Polar Vortex, majority of the people residing in Florida will just hang out in reasonable temperature ranging from a lowest of 60 to a highest of 70s. This is how low it may get even in winter. Although Florida may need to deal with a number of Spring Breakers but the people simply love this state as they’re able to wear t-shirts and shorts throughout the year.
#2: The only city in America founded by a woman is Miami
It was in 1875 when a lady named Julia Tuttle noticed Miami and soon after she decided to move into this city where she bought herself hundreds of acres of land. She believed that the area of Miami possessed enough potential to become a great city which would act like a trade center between South America and North America. She later on proved to be right!
#3: You can go snorkelling in underwater caves and hidden springs
People in Florida believe that the natural springs here are considered as the ‘fountain of youth’. There are approximately 900 freshwater springs, from a number of small ones to the largest one in Florida, Silver Springs which gives 550 million gallons of water in a day. You can go snorkelling in underground caves and the temperature is also friendly with an average of 70-75 degrees throughout the year.
#4: Orlando lures more tourists than any other amusement park in the US
There is a famous amusement park in Orlando which is tailored to meet the interest of anyone. It has got Islands of Adventure, Seaworld, LEGOLAND and Holy Land Experience. One more thing to be mentioned is the Disney World, the stalwart of all theme parks which has 4 amusement parks, 2 water parks, a boardwalk, a downtown area and a huge Sports Complex.
