Florida

Activities

Florida was home to many activities such as Disney World, hotels, Harry Potter Land, and an underwater state park! If you're looking for a fun place to go, many people like to go to Harry Potter Land (mentioned above), Magic Kingdom, and best of all, Disney World (also mentioned above) ! A lot of people find the beaches, oceans, weather,and lakes most fun.
Looking for a spot to spend the night? Why not go to a hotel right by the ocean. Cape Canaveral is one of the coolest parks opened in 1950. Magic Kingdom is NOT a roller coaster park, it has mostly games and other rides! Disney World was opened in 1917, 33 years before Magic Kingdom opened, which means (math moment =) Magic Kingdom opened in 1950! Still, Disney World remains more populated than Magic Kingdom!

(Video below shows universal studios. The reason why it's so fast is the video is in Time-Lapse.) Below that is a VERY long video of a overlook of Disney World.

History

When Florida was discovered it was already inhabited by Native Americans. The Spanish had already seen them (Native Americans...) around their country and were surprised that Spanish territory wasn't the only place where they lived. Many wars took place in that era. So Florida was claimed back and forth by the Spanish and Spain. Eventually Spain got tired of war, and gave America the state. A while later, slavery affected the United States. The southern states {Including Florida} seceeded from the union and called themselves the Confedorate states of of America. That conflict started the Civil war, where people fought for slave rights. In 1865 the South admitted defeat and surrendered. For the rest of the 1900, Florida was with the Union.

Hint,Hint

The Video above is pretty long, and it is just for an experience of some of the Simpsons area. If you ever go there it will probably look like this. Seriously, it's not a joke, it's the area.
