Florida Retirement Information

Much of Florida is a peninsula between the Gulf of Mexico, the Atlantic Ocean, and the Straits of Florida. Its geography is notable for a coastline, omnipresent water and the threat of hurricanes.

Florida has the longest coastline in the contiguous United States, encompassing approximately 1,350 miles and is the only state that borders both the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean.

Florida is internationally known for golf, tennis, auto racing, and water sports. It also makes a lot of headlines for the sinkholes that gobble up homes, and people!
