My blogger friends and I would like to welcome you to our Florida teacher blog hop! But before we get started why don’t you go grab yourself a nice tall cup of coffee… Now sit back and relax while we take you on a quick tour of The Sunshine State. While here don’t forget to grab yourself a few FREEBIES and remember to enter for a chance to win our Bundles of Sunshine! I live in Miami which is about 3 ½ hours from Disney World…my family’s second home! We are very fortunate to live so close to the parks and so we usually make at least one trip a year to Disney. As a matter of fact, just last week we were up in Universal and Islands of Adventure visiting the brand new Harry Potter rides….AMAZING… they were definitely worth the 5:00 am wake up call!!!!! I’ve lived in Miami pretty much my entire life… except for the 5 months that I went away to college in Tampa, FL. I will be honest, though, in telling you that my husband and I have considered moving due to how congested and over populated Miami has become. However, for the time being this is still our home :0) Living in sunny South Florida sure has its benefits… especially for those like myself that HATE the cold weather. You see one of the best parts of living here is that you can wear flip flops, shorts, and tank tops pretty much year round. You see the weather in Florida is H-O-T, hot!!!!! And I must say for the past few years it has been a scorcher.
Many people hear Miami and automatically think of South Beach. However, my family and I don’t get out to SB quite often. Instead, one of our favorite places to go on a Saturday is to Everglades National Park. This park is said to be one of the most unusual public parks in the US. and I happen to think it is also quite amazing! Take a look … The Florida everglades is also the only place in the world where alligators and crocodiles can co-exist?… Interesting… This park has so much to do and see… you can boat, hike, bike, canoe, fish, and camp just to name a few activities you can do here. What you will surely see in this park is plenty of wildlife such as alligators, manatees, spoonbills, egrets, and these amazing birds called anhingas that appear to scuba dive underwater looking for fish and then suddenly emerge on the surface. So now that you’ve learned a little bit about Miami, it’s time for a few FREEBIES!
