About Florida, USA

The US state of Florida is in the south east of the United States. Its economy includes tourism and agriculture. Visitor attractions include many amusement parks as well as beaches, orange crops, the Kennedy Space Center and the Everglades National Park.

Holidays in Orlando and elsewhere in Florida are popular with families and other travellers from both within the United States and from overseas.

The Florida Keys are an arc-shaped archipelago extending from the southeastern coast of the Florida peninsula, about 15 miles south of the city of Miami. The islands of the Florida Keys are formed from the exposed remains of an ancient coral reef.

The main chain of Keys (islands) can be accessed by car via the Overseas Highway, a 127-mile section of U.S. route 1. This highway was built parallel to the original route of the Florida Overseas Railway which operated from 1912 until it was partly destroyed by a hurricane in 1935.

Key West is the westernmost of the inhabited islands.
