Florida State Overview

After Florida natives crushed an attempt by Ponce de Leon and a group of settlers to found a colony in 1521, the Spanish and French made attempts to establish settlements or find gold, with varying degrees of success.

In 1564, the French established the first Huguenot settlement, Fort Caroline, at the mouth of the St. Johns River on Florida’s east coast. However, this provoked the Spaniards and they destroyed the settlement just a year later. They founded San Augustin just 40 miles further south. This would become the first permanent European settlement on the American mainland. From here the Spaniards began to proselytize the south-east.

Today you can still find houses from that time in the historic center of Saint Augustine , such as “The Oldest Wooden Schoolhouse” (the oldest wooden schoolhouse) in the USA.

On March 3, 1845, Florida became the 27th state of the United States.

Florida is rightly called the “Sunshine State”. The average temperatures are over 30° Celsius in the summer months and over 20° C in the winter (25° C in Miami). In St. Petersburg the sun shines 360 days a year.

Florida is known for many attractions:

  • Cape Canaveral Cosmodrome with the Kennedy Space Center
  • Disney World Orlando
  • Universal Studios
  • Busch Gardens near Tampa
  • Auto racing at Daytona
  • Everglades in the south of the state
  • many seemingly endless beaches on the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico

to name just a few.

Geographical location

Florida is a peninsula in the southeastern United States bordering Georgia and Alabama to the north. The Atlantic Ocean is on the east coast of Florida, and the Gulf of Mexico on the west and south coasts. At the southern end of the state is a chain of islands offshore, the Florida Keys , whose name is derived from the Spanish word cayo (island). The island chain is connected by 42 bridges. Key West , probably the most famous of these islands, is located at the end. From the southernmost point of the continental USA on Key West it is still 140 kilometers to Cuba.

St. Augustine

On the northeast coast of Florida is the town of St. Augustine (Saint Augustine), which is the oldest city in the United States. Its history dates back to 1565, when it was founded by the Spaniards and therefore does not deny its European roots.

Today Augustine attracts many tourists from all over the world. It is a very pleasant city where you feel like you have gone back in time. The pedestrian zone lined with colonial buildings leads to the center, which is typical of sunny Spain. Although it is quite a problem in North America to come across a site that is older than 100 years, in St. Every history lover will find Augustine on his own. Therefore, this town with only 11,000 inhabitants is a kind of miracle. The population of the city consists largely of Hispanics and Seminole Indians, who now live here in peace with whites and immigrants from all over the world. St. Augustine is the oldest permanently inhabited city in America.

Visitors today in St. Augustine can see the colonial Spanish Quarter, which is a kind of museum of living history. There are two authentic period buildings from the 17th century, which give you a unique atmosphere. The woodworking workshop is definitely worth seeing, where the guide will introduce you to artistic carpentry and blacksmithing and describe the individual historical battles that took place here. You can also admire the preserved wooden toys from the colonial period and get acquainted with the methods of joining wood, making benches, tables and building wooden cottages. In the blacksmith’s workshop you can watch the production of a square nail with your own eyes. At that time, blacksmiths were specialized in individual blacksmith crafts. For example, “smith” made nails, “forgeman” forged horses, and “cutler” made swords and sabers.

Among the main sights of St. Today, however, Augustine belongs to the Castillo de San Marcos, which was built by the Spaniards in 1672 and which was used by the US military until 1899. It was worked on for 23 years, and the inhabitants were convinced during the attacks of the year 1702 and 1740. The fortress withstood and was never conquered. In 1845, it was renamed Fort Marion in honor of a revolutionary hero. In 1924 it was declared a national monument and 9 years later it became part of the system of national parks. In 1942, Congress decided to restore its original name, Castillo de San Marcos. Interestingly, the fortress was built from a material called Coquin, which is a bond of crushed sea shells.
