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.
