It's certainly not news to anyone that Florida is practically a mecca for tourists who enjoy the sight of sandy beaches and palm trees swaying in the warm salty breeze. Floridians can't really take credit for the climate, but the fine dining, nightlife, and entertainment are all our doing and it's nice to get recognized for our efforts.
