What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think about Florida? Most people would say beaches or theme parks. Walt Disney described Florida as a place that captures imagination, and boy, was he right! Ponce de Leon imagined fountains of youth when he saw the clear springs, while Spanish explorers imagined mermaids when they looked at manatees. This imagination is not only limited to the past. The developers in this region see swamps and sell them as paradise. So why not visit this state and see what your imagination runs wild with?
