Tourism plays a primary role in the state's economy; in 1996 visitors to Florida spent over $48 billion. Walt Disney World, a massive cluster of theme parks near Orlando that is one of the world's leading tourist attractions; Universal Studios, a combination theme park and film and television production facility, also near Orlando; and other attractions draw millions yearly.

Famed beaches, such as those at Miami Beach, Daytona Beach, Fort Lauderdale, and world-famous Sanibel Island attract hordes of vacationers. With more than 4,000 sq mi (10,360 sq km) of inland water and with the sea readily accessible from almost anywhere in the state, Florida is a fishing paradise. Other attractions include Everglades National Park with its unusual plant and animal life; Palm Beach with its palatial estates; and Sanibel Island's tropical resorts.

                           

Famous for its citrus fruits, Florida leads the nation in the production of oranges, grapefruits, tangerines, and market-ready corn and tomatoes. Other important crops include sugarcane and many varieties of winter vegetables. Cattle and dairy products are important, as is commercial fishing, with the catch including crabs, lobsters, and shrimp.

Northern Florida features rolling hills, huge oaks dripping with Spanish moss, and picturesque horse farms.  Central Florida is a water sports lovers delight with numerous fresh water lakes dotting the landscape in between the many exciting family theme parks.

                           


Southern Florida is in the sub-tropics and offers lush tropical plants, jungles, white sugar-sand beaches, and two of the most unique places on the planet:  the Everlades and the Keys.
