About Florida Map

:The "flowery land,” in the southeastern US, is the only state bordering both the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico. This detailed map of Florida shows the longest coastline in the contiguous US. From the Everglades National Park in the South to the Panama City in the West, this map covers all major tourist attractions in Florida. For the benefits of travelers, the state capital Tallahassee, the island of Key West, the city of Miami, and both international and domestic airports are shown on the map.

History of Florida


Archaeological evidence shows that the first inhabitants in the state were the Paleo-Indians about 14,000 years ago. Before the Europeans arrived in Florida in the 16th century, several American Indian tribes lived in the region such as Apalache, Tocobaga, Timucua, Calusa, and Tequesta.

The Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon was the first European to set foot in the region in 1513. Over the following hundred years, Florida was settled by the Spanish and the French. Great Britain was able to gain control over the region after defeating the French and the Peace of Paris was implemented in 1763.

The Spanish regained control over the East and West Florida regions after defeating the English. By 1819, both regions were given to the United States for $5 million under the Adams-Onis Treaty, and became one single region once again. Florida achieved statehood on March 3, 1845.

Where is Florida



Florida is located in the southeastern USA. It borders Alabama and Georgia to the North, the Atlantic Ocean to the East, the Gulf of Mexico to the West, and the straits of Florida to its South. Its close proximity to the Bahamas and South American countries has created a unique culture that is quintessentially Florida.

At only 105 meters above sea level, the Britton Hill is the highest natural point in the state. It has a total of 19 metropolitan areas, with Miami being the largest in the state and in the southeastern US. Jacksonville is the most populous city in FL, and also the largest city by area in the contiguous US.
