The state of Florida boasts the longest coastline in the lower 48 states and has water on three of its four sides. This unique geological formation combines with the southern location of Florida to create a tropical climate for its residents. Initially discovered by European explorers in 1513, Florida was originally inhabited by a number of American Indian tribes that included the Ais, the Apalachee, the Timucua and the Tequesta. Fort Caroline was the first successful settlement in the Florida area and changed hands several times as different European factions came into power in the region.

The Florida Everglades combine the geological characteristics of marshy wetlands with the water flow of a river; this slow-moving body of water is home to many kinds of wildlife. Alligators, panthers, whooping cranes, deer and bears are all native inhabitants of Florida. Many migratory birds return to Florida each winter to enjoy the temperate weather and plentiful food sources available in this tropical region. Tourism is an important source of income for Florida. Attractions like Walt Disney World and Universal Studios theme parks, SeaWorld, Legoland, Busch Gardens and the Kennedy Space Center are popular tourist destinations, and island retreats to include Key West offer a relaxed way to enjoy the natural beauty of the sea and the idyllic tropical weather of Florida.

Florida residents can choose from a wide range of industries when seeking employment in the state. Aerospace and military companies provide jobs for many workers; health care, financial services, construction and tourism are among other major industries in the state. Miami, Tampa Bay, Orlando and Jacksonville are the largest metropolitan areas in Florida and together comprise more than 60 percent of the state's population.
