Here are some pictures from a few of the coolest spots in my home state, Florida.
1. St. Augustine
The St. Augustine Fort, “Castillo de San Marco,” built in 1672.
2. Santa Fe River
“Naked Ed” has lived in a shed in Lilly Spring of the Santa Fe River for over 25 years – always in the buff.
Universal Studios puts on a Mardi Gras Party every March for the entire month. Florida Tech students can get discounted tickets through the Student Life Office.
Disney’s Magic Kingdom is always a classic.
- Wekiva Springs in Apopka is a great spot to go tubing on a weekend.
5. The Everglades
The Everglades is home to many alligators.
“Robert is Here” is a fruit stand just outside of the Everglades that sells exotic fruits, local flavored honey and awesome fruit milkshakes.
6. Key Largo
Snorkeling with a Go Pro
Snorkeling at John Pennecamp State Park
7. Key West
Every night in Key West, Mallory Square hosts the Sunset Festival, where tons of different street performers show off impressive talents.
We got *really* close to the Key Deer, a small deer found only in the Keys.

8. And of course, Melbourne!
A beautiful sunrise with my friends right at Pelican Beach Park in Satellite Beach, FL.
Have fun and explore Florida!
