Today, Florida is primarily a destination for millions of tourists coming for the sun, relaxation and entertainment. A large number of older people in the north are enjoying their retirement in Florida.

At Easter 1513, a Spanish soldier and traveler, Juan Ponce de León (1460–1521), landed off the coast of Florida looking for a source of youth. Thus began a 250-year period of violence and exploitation that nearly wiped out the original Seminol Indian tribe.

In 1565, another Spanish expedition to Florida under Pedro Menéndez de Avilés (1519-1574) completely destroyed the Huguenot colony on the Saint John River and established its own colony, Saint Augustine, nearby. For 200 years, Spain competed with Great Britain and France for dominance over Florida. At the end of the French and Indian Wars in 1763, she finally took over the British government. During the War of Independence, Florida remained loyal to Britain, but in 1781 Florida was occupied by Spain.

During the War of 1812, American forces occupied Fernandin to prevent the British from using Florida as their military base. However, the Spaniards protested, and so American troops were withdrawn. The British returned and launched a guerrilla war against the American settlers. In 1818, Andrew Jackson (1767-1845) occupied the city of Pensacola, and the following year Spain ceded the entire state to the United States. Relations with the Indians continued to deteriorate, and after the Seven Years’ War, most of the natives were expelled in 1842. During the Civil War, Union troops quickly occupied cities on the Florida coast, but the interior was much more resistant. After the war, the railway allowed an influx of new settlers, but also tourists, and so began a period of rapid population growth that continued throughout the 20th century. After the Cuban Revolution in 1959, many Cuban refugees settled in Florida, and especially in Miami, and their invasion intensified in recent years. The Hispanic population is approaching 15%.

Forests, lakes and military areas occupy most of Florida. Economically, Florida is one of the strongest states. The predominant crop production produces citrus, vegetables, peanuts, soy and sugar cane. Florida is the world’s largest producer of phosphates. The industry is dominated by the production of electronics and rocket technology. However, the most important sector is tourism. In addition to the beaches, most tourists come to visit the swampy Everglades with alligators and Disney World near the city (Mando. Florida is also home to a number of major sporting events.
