别名「阳光之州」(Sunshine State)的佛罗里达以其宜人、和煦的天气及美丽的海滩闻名于世。第一位探索佛罗里达州的欧洲人,是为找寻青春泉的庞塞德莱昂(Ponce de Leon)1565年,由西班牙所建的圣奥古斯丁(St. Augustine)是美国境内最古老的欧洲殖民地。佛罗里达于1845年成为美国一州,它的州花是与其非常相称的橘花,因为柑橘是该州的主要出口产品。由于佛罗里达的形状及介于大西洋与墨西哥湾的长形半岛地理位置,佛罗里达每年吸引数百万名游客到它的海滨休闲区。佛罗里达的首府是塔拉哈西(Tallahassee)


Called the "Sunshine State," Florida is known for its balmy, sunny weather and beautiful beaches. Ponce de Leon, in search of the elusive fountain of youth, was the first European to explore Florida. St. Augustine, founded by the Spanish in 1565, is the oldest permanent European settlement in the continental United States. Statehood for Florida came in 1845. Florida's state flower is the orange blossom, which is particularly fitting because oranges are a main export of the state. Because of its shape and location, a long peninsula between the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico, Florida attracts millions of visitors each year to its many seaside resort areas. Its capital is Tallahassee.
