Florida is touted as one of the premier tourist destinations in the United States. Its exceptional geographical feature (being a peninsula) makes it a state that’s almost surrounded by water. It serves as a border between two great bodies of water: the Gulf of Mexico in the west and Atlantic Ocean in the east. These features make Florida a state with the 2nd longest coastline of all of the contiguous US states. With a long coastline, there are plenty of awesome beaches in the state. And of course we know what that means. There’s plenty of beach activities to try when you visit Florida.
