Fun facts about Florida

Tell your nanny that Florida is a coveted spot – according to the “Travel Wire News,” 40 percent of all adult Americans have named Florida as the location they would most like to visit. Perhaps that’s because no matter where you travel in Florida, you are never more than 60 miles from the beach. Or maybe it’s because Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, Clearwater, and St. Petersburg have been named among the top six most hospitable cites in the nation. There are many reasons to enjoy Florida. Your nanny can ride the Florida Keys Overseas Highway, which connects the islands with the peninsula, and has been called one of the 10 most beautiful drives in the U.S.! Florida’s distinct history is depicted by endless attractions around the state. Your nanny just has to visit Saint Augustine - it boasts ancient cobblestone streets and quaint cafes. For a peek into the world of historic black Tallahassee, visit the 1890 circa home that is now the John G. Riley Center/Museum for African-American History and Culture in Tallahassee. Suggest your nanny take a prehistoric look into the ancient world of the Calusa Indians at the Mound Key Archeological State Park in Estero and view the remnants of a lost culture, accessible only by boat! Another historical landmark where Cuban, Italian and Spanish cultures engulf the city with traditions, zest and, of course, aromatic cigars is the Latin Quarter at Ybor City in Tampa. Feel the old-world charm, gape at its amazing architecture and pop into its hottest clubs! Have your nanny make a note: on a hot day in Florida, the pulp of a cucumber can be up to 10 degrees cooler than the temperature records. Hence, Florida coined the phrase, “cools as a cucumber.”
