Flights to Florida – ‘Discovered’ in 1513
A chap called Juan Ponce de Leon arrived in the area in 1513 and called it Florida after the Feast of Flowers that was taking place back home. These days flights to Florida land you in a holiday state that offers fantastic natural resources as well as sophisticated contemporary cities and – of course – theme parks. Countless theme parks. The state’s international airports include Daytona Beach Florida International, Fort Lauderdale Airport, Hollywood International Airport, Southwest Florida International Airport, Jacksonville International Airport, Key West International Airport, Melbourne International Airport, Miami International Airport and Sanford International Airport. Whichever destination you choose, it’ll be hot. The whole of Florida’s hot and Key West has the highest average temperature in the entire US.
Florida Flights – Indians, heroines and history
Flights to Florida don’t just give you access to theme parks, swamps and grown ups dressed as giant mice. While Juan Ponce (unfortunate name) claimed Florida as his own, it was originally home to tribes who settled there 7000 years ago. Compared to much of the US Florida is a place packed with history. The state’s oldest city, St. Augustine, dates from 1565 so rivals many European cities in age. Choose flights to Florida and you’ll follow in the footsteps of aviatrix Amelia Earhart who took off from Miami back in 1937 for a record breaking solo flight around the world… and was never seen again. All Florida’s airports are modern and sparkly, jam packed with state of the art airport technology to smooth the flow. Earhart would be mighty impressed.
Flights to Florida – Where snow is as rare as hens’ teeth
Busy looking for interesting facts about Florida, we discover that snow fell in Dade County on January 20, 1977. So what, you might ask. We can only assume that snow is so incredibly rare in Dade County that they’ve never forgotten it. So if you’re thinking about flights to Florida to escape cold weather in any shape or form, you won’t go far wrong. The thing we like best of all about the whole of Florida is a grave in Key West that has been inscribed with the epitaph ‘I told you I was sick.’ US humour doesn’t always come this delightfully dry. We almost felt at home.
