A Crash Course on Florida Facts at Our Apartments For Rent in Lady Lake

Many people can rattle off long lists of facts about locations all over the world, but it’s a common phenomenon that people aren’t as knowledgeable about the place where they actually live. Don’t get caught lacking in home-state knowledge. Instead, arm yourself with all sorts of facts about the wonderful state of Florida and be prepared to dazzle friends and family with your expertise.

Some interesting facts about the Sunshine State include:

  • Florida became a U.S. state in 1845.
  • St. Augustine was the first permanent European settlement in the country, established in 1565.
  • Florida has the longest coastline in the lower 48 states.
  • The first European explorer to the area was the Spanish conquistador, Juan Ponce de Leon.
  • Ponce de Leon called Florida “La Florida,” which means “the flowery land.”
  • Florida spans two time zones. The western panhandle is on Central time while the rest of the state is in the Eastern time zone.
