Florida Public Records
Florida, also known as the Sunshine State is located in the southeastern area of the United States on the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts. Expanding over 65,755 square miles, this state is 17.9% water and ranks as the 22nd state in the United States by size; Florida measures approximately 361 miles in width by 447 miles in length. The state capital is Tallahassee, though the city of Orlando, home to the famous Walt Disney World Resorts, may be more widely known, especially among families with small children. The tropical climate of Florida not only makes it a popular destination for tourists, but it is also a popular place to retire. No part of the state is extremely distant from the ocean, and the average daily temperature is slightly over 70 degrees Fahrenheit, the warmest in the country. However, despite the warm temperatures, severe weather conditions can occur. Central Florida experiences more lightening strikes than anywhere else in the country and thus is referred to as the 'lightening capital' of the United States. In addition, hurricanes, tornadoes, and thunderstorms generally occur at some point during the year. Notoriously damaging hurricanes such as Katrina, Rita and Andrew have cost the state's economy billions in damage. Despite the state's notoriety for some of the nation's most disastrous hurricanes, Florida is also known for its tourism industry. With extensive coastline, visitors flock from all over to Florida's beaches, and to its world famous theme parks including Walt Disney World Resorts, Universal Orlando Resort, Busch Gardens and Sea World. In addition, Florida is home to the Kennedy Space Center and an ever flourishing agricultural industry, particularly in citrus.
