Florida, Sunshine State, 'land of flowers.' Each new wave of immigrants from the 1500s to the present has carried to Florida a dream of a new life in paradise. In the 20th century alone, Florida has grown from the South's most sparsely populated state to its largest. Since the 1930's, at least sixty different ethnic groups, apart from Anglo-Americans and African-Americans, have come to call Florida home, and they have created the most diverse state in the U.S. today.
Each part of Florida is different. People of many cultures live side-by-side, their traditions merging and creating a cultural scene of incredible energy. Experience the sounds and smells of Latin America on the streets of Miami, the Caribbean in Key West, Seminole culture in the Everglades, Greek music in Tarpon Springs, Asian culinary arts in Orlando, Spanish heritage in St. Augustine and Pensacola, and African-American arts and culture in Eatonville.
Florida boasts rich history preserved in small towns and urban cultural centers, and more museums and performing arts centers than any other state. From pop culture to high art, Florida hums with creative energy and feasts your senses all year long.
