Historical notes

Florida was "discovered" by a Spanish explorer who baptized it Easter Florida, in honor of Palm Sunday. While joining the Union of States in the mid-1800s, it will be with the construction of the first railway that the State will become an integral part of the rest of the federation and above all it will begin to be a travel destination. Thus began the country's first tourism industry. At the end of the Second World War, many retirees settle in this warm and welcoming country, joined by Cubans fleeing because they are anti-Castro. In 1970, the opening of the large park Disneyworld gives a great boost to local employment, the economy and the decisive launch of Florida as a tourist destination.


One of the major cities of Florida is Miami. It is a cosmopolitan urban center, which offers beaches frequented by all types of tourists. There is no shortage of trendy districts with boutiques and shopping centers, but next to the district dedicated to Art Deco as well as the characteristic Cuban-style district, Little Havana.

Orlando is another major Florida city that offers an urban center with museums and historic buildings to visit. However, the city is best known as the home of the most famous playground, DisneyWorld, about half an hour from downtown. Then there is in the surroundings the Sea World, in which to be in contact with dolphins, sharks and killer whales; the Universal Studio where you can admire the locations of the great films and the Aerospace Center of Cape Canaveral, from which the adventure in space of the Apollo spacecraft also began.
