About Florida

The state of Florida is located in the southeastern region of the United States. True to its “Sunshine State” tag, Florida is famous for sunny weather, pulpier oranges, glamorous coastline, abundant golf courses, and amusement parks. Florida achieved statehood on March 3, 1845.

History of Florida

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

The Spanish explorer, Juan Ponce de Leon, was the first European to set foot in the region in 1513. For the next one 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.

The Spanish regained control over the Florida regions after defeating the English. By 1819, the Florida regions were sold to the United States for $5 million under the Adams-Onis Treaty.

Geography of Florida

Florida is located in the southeastern US, and borders Alabama & 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.
