Florida is the most south-easterly state in the United States of America. (There is a marker at the southernmost tip of Key West indicating that it is the southernmost point in the continental USA.) Known as "The Sunshine State", it became a popular winter destination for the well-to-do from colder climates over a century ago, and has gained ever greater popularity since.
