The Florida Sky

A beautiful splash of orange across the Florida sky sets the mood for a glorious evening after a sun-filled day in paradise.
Florida is a state in the southeastern region of the 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. Florida is the 22nd most extensive, the 4th most populous, and the 8th most densely populated of the 50 United States. The state capital is Tallahassee, the largest city is Jacksonville, and the largest metropolitan area is the Miami metropolitan area.
Florida was the first part of what is now the continental United States to be visited by Europeans.
