How did Florida get the name Florida?
Florida was named by Spanish conquistador Ponce de León, who was the first European to record its location, on April 2, 1513. He believed it to be a large island. He called it "La Florida" (flowery land) referring to the Easter season, which in Spanish is Pascua Florida.

It got its name by the Spanish words "Pascua Florida" meaning flowery easter. Juan Ponce De Leon, the Spanish Explorer named it this. florida received its name from when in 15…27 DeVaca came over with Narvaez and they were looking for gold, when they just happened to stumble across this beautiful land that was bountiful with plant-life. The root of this word is the ending two letters 'da' which are Spanish, meaning land of; and' flori' is derived from the word flora meaning plants or flowers. So in conclusion if you put the two together you get land of flowers you are totally wrong. juan ponce de leon named it pascua florida which means flowery easter. and it was in 1513.

Many types of water activities including canoeing, kayaking, sailing, powerboating, water skiing, fishing, scuba diving, snorkeling. Fresh and salt water. See the Everglade…s. Visit Disney World and the many other theme parks in the Orlando area. Hike on the Florida trail. Take a cruise. The weather is mild, and near the ocean even the summers are nice. You can be outdoors in shorts and a t-shirt on all but a few days (today happening to be one of them) per year.
