Florida Topography and Tourist Attractions
Florida was named in honor of Pascua florida, the Spanish Easter celebration, which means "feast of the flowers". Much of Florida is located on the Florida peninsula with its thousands of lakes, meandering rivers, and vast wetland areas. Lake Okeechobee, the largest lake in southern USA, feeds the 40-mile wide Everglades marsh area, home to many rare flora and fauna species. A chain of small coral islands, known as the Florida Keys, stretches southwest toward the Gulf of Mexico from Florida's southern tip. These islands comprise North America's largest coral reef system. The Florida Keys, along with the Everglades National Park and the Walt Disney World theme park in Orlando, are the state's leading tourist attractions.
