About This Quiz

Sure, you probably know a little bit about Florida, but it would take a true Floridian to ace this quiz. Let's get started to find out how much you really know about the sunshine state.

Florida is known as the Sunshine State for good reason. Most of the state is a peninsula and the state is located closer to the equator than any other contiguous U.S. state, so there is lots of sun and tons of sandy beaches. Water sports, fishing and agriculture are major industries and pastimes in Florida. But the state is in trouble. Because Florida is only about a foot above sea level, global climate change is threatening to wreak havoc with the amount of coastal area that Florida has. This, combined with the hurricanes that hit Florida during each annual hurricane season from June to November means that the entire state might be under water far too soon.

But, for now, Florida continues to be a sunny tourist destination and the home of major theme park attractions such as Disney World, Universal Studios and Sea World.

So, do you consider yourself to be a true Floridian? Take this quiz to test your Florida knowledge and earn bragging rights among your friends.
