Florida is the dream destination for many vacationers in the USA and is not without reason called the "Sunshine State". Covering an area of ​​over 170,000 square kilometers, it is slightly smaller than Uruguay and, as a peninsula, extends far into the Caribbean.

Geographically, Florida is located in the far northeast of the United States, exactly between the Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico. The climate in the northwest is subtropical-humid, otherwise even tropical-humid. Once you get used to the climate, you can endure it all year round.

However, during the hurricane season between June and November, Florida, like much of the Caribbean, is a vulnerable region for these storms.

The Florida state slogan is just like the well-known U.S. slogan "In God we trust" (in German: We trust in God). A special geographical feature is the Florida Keys, hundreds of small islands that successively move away from the mainland like an arch of islands. 42 of them are connected via the Overseas Highway and bridges.

Florida: facts

  • Area: 170,314 sq km
  • Population: 18,801,310
  • Abbreviation: FL
  • Capital: Tallahassee
  • Local time: GMT -4
  • Nickname: The Sunshine State

Key West - in Hemingway's footsteps

At the very end of the arch is Key West, from where it is not far to Cuba and which is considered the southernmost point of the U.S. mainland. Ernest Hemingway once lived here (his home now functions as a Hemingway Museum and can be visited) and you can still see why today. The atmosphere here is unique.

The neighboring states of Florida are Georgia and Alabama, otherwise it is located centrally and is a good starting point for trips to the Caribbean and various states in the region. Florida is a relatively flat state (average height: 30 m), the highest point is at 105 m (Britton Hill).

Florida is one of the most populous U.S. states (only California, Texas and New York have more residents) and in recent years more and more Americans, especially retirees, have moved to the southern state. In addition, there is a high level of immigration from Hispanics in the surrounding states such as Cuba and the Dominican Republic.

Florida is politically controversial today and is alternating between Democrats and Republicans.

Florida is a coveted state in presidential elections because a large number of voters represent the state due to population growth. Most of the residents are of European origin, but the proportion of Hispanics is also high. The proportion of African Americans is also quite high at 15%.

Most of the residents are Protestants, but the proportion of Catholics is increasing. There is also a large Jewish minority and Methodist. The largest cities in the state are Jacksonville, Miami, Tampa, Saint Petersburg, Orlando and Hialeah as well as the capital Tallahassee.

Florida came under American sovereignty relatively late and was previously under Spanish rule. It wasn't until 1845 that Florida became a United States. As part of the Confederate States of America, it fought against the northern states in the civil war of 1861-1865. After the defeat of the southern states, it rejoined the United States in June 1868.

Florida is increasingly dominated by tourism. With its many beaches, Caribbean flair and tropical climate, it is a popular travel destination all year round. There is also some food production (especially the cultivation and recycling of citrus fruits such as grapefruit and oranges for juice, fishing) and other services and phosphate mining.

Anyone interested in American sports will also get their money's worth in Florida. For example, in Miami you can watch the Miami Marlins (baseball), the Miami Dolphins (football) or the Miami Heat (basketball). You don't even have to do without ice hockey in sunny Florida (Florida Panthers from Sunrise).
