History





The history of Florida can be traced back to when the first Native Americans began to inhabit the peninsula as early as 14,000 years ago. They left behind artifacts and archaeological evidence.Florida has had many waves of immigration, including French and Spanish. Florida was under colonial rule by Spain and Great Britain during the 18th and 19th centuries before becoming a territory of the United States in 1822. Florida is nicknamed the "Sunshine State" due to its warm climate and days of sunshine.The economy has developed over time, starting with natural resource exploitation in logging, mining, fishing, and sponge diving; as well as cattle ranching, farming, and citrus growing. The tourism, real estate, trade, banking, and retirement destination businesses followed.














Residents

Wildlife

Florida is home to an amazing array of fish, wildlife, and the habitats in which they live and thrive.With over 700 terrestrial animals, more than 200 freshwater fish,and more than 1,000 marine fish.Florida's freshwater fisheries comprise 3 million acres of lakes, ponds and reservoirs, and approximately 12,000 miles of fish able rivers.The bald eagle, our national bird, was removed from the imperiled species list on the heels of its remarkable recovery.Alligator management units are established with appropriate harvest quotas to provide recreational opportunities for Floridians and non-residents who are at least 18 years old to take up to 2 alligators per permit. The state’s largest land mammal has come back from just several hundred bears in the 1970s to more than 3,000 today and is one of Florida’s conservation success stories.

Florida has a normal culture . We do same old types of creative stuff. For instance, we put up lights on Christmas eve and decorate for Halloween. We shoot fireworks on 4th of July. We celebrate any other holidays and fun stuff like always.
