Florida is nicknamed The Sunshine State and became the 27th state of the United States of America in 1845.
The state bird of Florida is the Mockingbird and the state flower is an orange blossom
The capital of Florida is Tallahassee in Leon county.
My parents owned a vacation home in Cape Coral, Florida when I was growing up. I would go half of the school year in Indiana and the remainder of the school year in Cape Coral.
So, I grew up running the beaches of Ft. Myers, tanning and playing volleyball.
Unfortunately, probably because of living there, I don't think to take a lot of our vacations there since I have started this blog.
So, I have visited far more places than I have written about. I will do my best to add more posts on Florida in the upcoming years.
