Florida is the southernmost State of the USA where, for most of the time, the sun shines truly bright. Miami Beach is a narrow island just off the mainland and Miami City is a leisure world of the rich and famous.Coral Gables was built in the 1920's in flamboyant southern Europe style as was the Venetian Pool and the Biltmore Hotel whose tower is a replica of the Giralda in Seville.The Florida Keys are a group of thirty one coral islands that extend from Miami on the southern point of Florida, to the Caribbean. The first and largest is Key Largo made famous by a Hollywood movie that starred Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. Orlando was founded in 1875 as an agricultural distribution centre and today the biggest entertainment parks in the world are located there and attended by almost forty three million visitors each year.On the east coast of the Florida Peninsula, Cape Canaveral juts out into the Atlantic As far back as 1949 the 'Rocket Trials Zone', as it was then known, was built within an area that has been further developed and extended to become the world famous Space Station it is today. Florida is a truly magical place with something special to offer for one and all!
