Florida  (Spanish for "flowery land") is a state in the southeast United States, bordered to the west by the Gulf of Mexico, to the north by Alabama and Georgia, to the east by the Atlantic Ocean, and to the south by the Straits of Florida. The state shares maritime borders with Cuba and the Bahamas. The state is well known for its beaches, amusement parks, and NASA at Cape Canaveral.

History

Early 20th Century

The 40s to the 80s

World War III

During the Third World War, the United States Navy used Florida as one of its main ports for REFORGER convoys to Europe. The ports of Miami and Fort Lauderdale were extensively used. Cuban Revolutionary Armed Forces tried but failed to invade the state, though a contingent of Cuban troops landed on the Florida Keys. This would later be retaken by the U.S. Florida was also the starting point for the liberation of the Bahamas, the Turks and Caicos Islands, Haiti, Dominican Republic and the Invasion of Cuba itself.

Today

On September 11, 2001, terrorists attacked Miami and Fort Lauderdale by means of mass shooting, car bombs, and hurling grenades at areas where tourists are mostly known to congregate. Specifically, in Miami, the port area was attacked with one cruise ship suffering an explosion from an IED smuggled to it. 248 people were killed in the attacks in Florida, including the terrorists themselves when they were killed by police officers.

Florida is a famous tourist spots and cruise ship stops in the Atlantic. Two major amusement parks, namely Universal Studios and Walt Disney World, are in the state.
