Florida has also attracted immigrants from all over the world but a major influence has come from the Caribbean, Jamaica, Barbados, Haiti, the Bahamas and Trinidad and Tobago. The south of Florida has been influenced by South American cuisine from countries such as Brazil, Argentina, Colombia and also Cuba, Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico. Many of these countries were, in turn, colonized by French, Dutch and British explorers who introduced their own cuisines to add to these countries which, all in all makes for a wonderful melting pot of flavours.
Each year, more than 1.5 million guests from around the world experience their very own space adventure by exploring the exciting past, present and future of America’s space program at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. Built in 1967, today the Visitor Complex is one of Central Florida’s most popular tourist destinations.
From theme parks and sunshine to its continuously evolving dining scene, Orlando is the only destination where everyone in a travel party can do it all and enjoy it all together.

FLORIDA KEYS — The Overseas Highway, the southernmost leg of U.S. Highway 1 that’s sometimes called the Highway that Goes to Sea, is a modern wonder. In 2009, the roadway was named an All-American Road, the highest recognition possible under the National Scenic Byways program established by the United States Congress.
The road follows a trail originally blazed in 1912 when railroad baron Henry Flagler completed the extension of his Florida East Coast Railroad from Miami to Key West. The railway ceased operation after severe damage to its infrastructure in a 1935 hurricane.
