Sun-drenched Florida is a traveler's paradise that features an abundance of beaches, natural areas, sightseeing destinations, and historic locales. The bleached-white beaches of the Emerald Coast stretch from Pensacola to Panama City. The islands of the Keys, the southernmost part of the contiguous fifty states; the vibrant culture of Miami and South Beach; Daytona's popular tourist spots and famed racetrack -- these highlight the distinctive map of the state. Central Florida's attractions, specifically Walt Disney World, have delighted kids of all ages for years. Nature-lovers flock to Everglades National Park and Rainbow Springs State Park, and science buffs revel in the out-of-this-world information at the Kennedy Space Center. Other popular Florida locales include the Saints (Petersburg and Augustine), the Forts (Lauderdale, Myers, Pierce, and Walton Beach), and the beautifully preserved Sanibel Island. Thousands of football fans road-trip to colleges across the state, where teams like the Seminoles, Gators, and Hurricanes vie for bragging rights. With its abundance of things to see and do, Florida is a top vacation spot for scores of people, many of whom are so enamored of the state that they spend their golden years there.
