THE STATE OF FLORIDA

Florida is the 3rd most populous and the 8th most densely populated of the 50 United States. Despite the fact that the most popular city is Miami, the state capital is actually Tallahassee. The largest city is Jacksonville.

Florida culture is influenced by Native American, European American, Hispanic and African American heritages. Indeed, the state was first discovered in 1513 by Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de León. He named it La Florida, which means “the flowery”.

Anyway, a part from the beautiful seaside and stunning islets off the coast of Florida; let’s take a look at the rest of the country’s natural attractions!
