Florida Fun You Didn't Know About

Things to Do in Florida

Quick! What three things describe Florida?

  1. Oranges
  2. Beaches
  3. Walt Disney World

Yeah, of course we have those things, but Florida offers a whole lot more.



Find the fun in sunny Florida with this group of lenses describing ALL things Florida.

Florida is home to many outstanding colleges and universities. There are too many to list in this lens, but here is a sampling of some of the well-known Florida universities (including my alma mater, Eckerd College).

      Very interesting. There is so much to see within Canada and the United States that it always amazes me that people have to travel out further for vacation.

      I created a lens on where I used to live in South Florida, Deer Creek which is in Deerfield Beach. It was a great place to live, with lovely places to walk. I definitely miss the sunshine now that I am back in the UK.

      Great facts and information about Florida here. Since I am in the concrete contracting business and from Jacksonville I enjoyed information about Jacksonville's bridges.
