Florida is a state located in the southeastern United States. Most of
the state is a large peninsula with the Gulf of Mexico on its west and the Atlantic
Ocean on its east. It has a warm and humid subtropical climate. The capital is
Tallahassee and the largest city is Jacksonville.

Florida's economy relies heavily on tourism. Tourism makes up the largest sector
of the state economy. Warm weather and hundreds of miles of beach attract about
60 million visitors to the state every year. Amusement parks, especially in the
Orlando area, make up a significant portion of tourism; the huge Walt Disney World
Resort consists of four theme parks and more than 20 hotels in Lake Buena Vista,
and together with Universal Orlando Resort, Busch Gardens, SeaWorld, and other
major parks drives state tourism. The Florida Keys and Daytona Beach are also
tourism centers.


Florida's nickname is the "Sunshine State," but severe weather is a common
occurrence in the state. Central Florida is known as the lightning capital of
the United States, as it experiences more lightning strikes than anywhere else
in the country. Florida has the highest average precipitation of any state, in
large part because afternoon thunderstorms are common in most of the state
from late spring until early autumn.
