Geography - Florida
Where is Florida?
Florida is situated at the south-east corner of the United States of America (or USA) and is surrounded by water on three sides, making it a peninsula. It is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean to the east and south, and the Gulf of Mexico to the west.
At the southern tip of Florida is a chain, or archipelago of islands made of sand and coral, called the Florida Keys.
What is it like in Florida?
The land in Florida is very flat and most of it lies only just above sea level. It has a tropical and subtropical climate meaning it is very warm, humid and wet almost all year round. Although it is called 'The Sunshine State’, Florida is also at risk from hurricanes in summer and autumn. These are very strong storms that can cause lots of damage to buildings and land.
When it rains in Florida, it rains heavily. The large amounts of rainfall collect in lakes, rivers, underground springs and swamps. This has created places such as the Everglades in the south - a wet marshy area where alligators, turtles and snakes live.
Florida’s main industries are:
- farming - tomatoes, strawberries and oranges are grown here
- tourism - its miles of beaches, amusement parks and state parks attract over 100 million visitors each year
The Everglades are a very wet and marshy National Park in the South of Florida
American Crocodiles are one of the more common animals found in the Everglades
The Florida panther can also be found in the Everglades
One of the major crops grown in Florida is oranges. Most of the USA's supply of oranges comes from Florida.
