Congratulations! You’ve been featured: @earth.to.rachael . Selected by: @jasonmillerphotography . In the 18th century, several Spanish galleons were shipwrecked in the Martin County area of Florida's Treasure Coast. The multiple wrecks were reportedly the result of a hurricane, and the ships were carrying unknown quantities of gold and silver. Some of this treasure has since been recovered, and its presence resulted in the region's name. The Treasure Coast area that became Stuart was first settled by non-Native Americans in 1870. The city of Stuart is known as the Sailfish Capital of the World, because of the many sailfish found in the ocean off Martin County. . . . #rocks #florida #all_beautyaddiction #pureflorida #floridalife #visitflorida #atlanticocean #saltlife #picoftheday #loveflorida #sunshinestate #explorida #lovefl #stuart #beautifuldestinations #beach #ocean #ocean #earth_shotz #igtravel

St. Pete Beach is a Florida resort city set on a barrier island, west of St. Petersburg. It’s known for its beaches. A 1928 landmark, the pink Moorish-style Don CeSar Hotel looms over the shore. The Pass-A-Grille area offers galleries, shops and the Gulf Beaches Historical Museum, which displays postcards and other artifacts in a 1917 church. Nearby, boats depart to Shell Key, a nesting site for seabirds and turtles. 📷: @ayce09

Congratulations! You’ve been featured: @ryanmauermann . Selected by: @jasonmillerphotography . Moon jellyfish are found in nearly all the world's oceans including off the coast of Florida, primarily in inshore regions like harbors and estuaries. Because its locomotion is rather limited, this species prefers temperate waters with regular currents that can help push it through the water column. The moon jelly feeds on plankton using the tentacles flowing from the bell, and is not harmful to humans. . . . #jellyfish #florida #all_beautyaddiction #pureflorida #floridalife #visitflorida #atlanticocean #saltlife #picoftheday #loveflorida #sunshinestate #explorida #lovefl #moonjellyfish #beautifuldestinations #beach #seaanimals #ocean #earth_shotz #igtravel

Congratulations! You’ve been featured: @sofi_photography_ . Selected by: @jasonmillerphotography . The area was started as a neighborhood called Modello in the late 19th century. In November 1904, the area was incorporated as the town of Dania, because most of the 35 residents were farmers of Danish ancestry. Formerly known as the "Tomato Capital of the World," once the city went from a farming settlement to an urban city, it soon took on the name "The Antique Capital of the South," due to its many antique shops in downtown Dania Beach, especially along Federal Highway, known as the city's "Antique Row". . . . #daniabeach #florida #all_beautyaddiction #pureflorida #floridalife #visitflorida #atlanticocean #saltlife #picoftheday #loveflorida #sunshinestate #explorida #lovefl #longexposure #beautifuldestinations #beach #pier #train #earth_shotz #igtravel

Ybor City Historic District

Congratulations! You’ve been featured: @mitchellkerby . Selected by: @jasonmillerphotography . Ybor City was founded as an independent town in 1885 by a group of cigar manufacturers led by Vicente Martinez-Ybor and was annexed by Tampa in 1887. The original population was mostly composed of Cuban and Spanish immigrants who worked in the cigar factories. Italian and Eastern-European Jewish immigrants followed shortly thereafter and established many retail shops, farms and grocery stores, box factories, print shops, and other enterprises which catered to the cigar industry and its workers. The coming of the Great Depression in the early 1930s brought a sharp reduction in the worldwide demand for fine cigars, and Ybor City's economic base suffered greatly. Beginning in the 1980s, the old business district centered on 7th Avenue (La Septima) began a slow recovery, first as a bohemian haven for artists and, by the early 1990s, as a popular nightlife and entertainment district. Since 2000, many historic structures near 7th Avenue have been renovated and restored, and construction has filled in most long-vacant lots. Among the new structures are hotels, office and retail space, and apartment complexes, leading to the Ybor City's first population increases in over half a century. Residential areas such as V.M. Ybor and Tampa Heights have also begun to see gentrification, with older structures being restored and new ones built. . . . #tampa #florida #all_beautyaddiction #pureflorida #floridalife #visitflorida #gulfofmexico #saltlife #picoftheday #loveflorida #sunshinestate #explorida #lovefl #longexposure #beautifuldestinations #turtle #yborcity #train #earth_shotz #igtravel

Miami, Florida

The Miami area was inhabited for thousands of years by indigenous Native American tribes. The Tequestas occupied the area for a thousand years before encountering Europeans. An Indian village of hundreds of people dating to 500–600 B.C. was located at the mouth of the Miami River. Miami is noted as "the only major city in the United States conceived by a woman, Julia Tuttle", a local citrus grower and a wealthy Cleveland native. The Miami area was better known as "Biscayne Bay Country" in the early years of its growth. In the late 19th century, reports described the area as a promising wilderness. The area was also characterized as "one of the finest building sites in Florida." The Great Freeze of 1894–95 hastened Miami's growth, as the crops of the Miami area were the only ones in Florida that survived. Julia Tuttle subsequently convinced Henry Flagler, a railroad tycoon, to expand his Florida East Coast Railway to the region, for which she became known as "the mother of Miami." Miami was officially incorporated as a city on July 28, 1896 with a population of just over 300. It was named for the nearby Miami River, derived from Mayaimi, the historic name of Lake Okeechobee.

Beautiful birds eye view of Sombrero Reef by @offshoretom 🌊 - Sombrero Reef is one of the largest and surely the most magnificent coral reefs in the Middle Keys, home to some of the best spur and groove reef formations in all the Keys. The amount of coral is breath-taking. As soon as you descend, gorgonians, brain, finger and lettuce corals can be seen. Schools of colorful tropicals, southern stingrays and nurse sharks make their home on this reef. Large barracuda hang out by the lighthouse structure. The coral limestone has an "Arch" which is large enough to swim through. - Chosen by @damon_powers

Love this video by Jeff @stormvisuals from Lake Okeechobee. Lake Okeechobee is the largest freshwater lake in the state of Florida and is the seventh largest in the United States. It covers 730 square miles, which is half the state of Rhode Island! The average depth though is only 9ft which is rather different for such a large lake.

Absolutely stunning capture by @mrtaddeo of the Milky Way near Clewiston, FL 🌌 - The Seminole Indians, the first inhabitants of present day Clewiston, had a fishing camp by Lake Okeechobee. In 1920, Alonzo Clewis of Tampa and John O'Brien of Philadelphia purchased land in the region to establish a community. The foundations of a town were laid, and the Moore Haven & Clewiston Railroad was built to connect the community with the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad at Moore Haven. Clewiston, which was incorporated as a city in 1925, was named in honor of a banker, A.C. Clewis. It became well known for sport fishing, especially that of largemouth bass. Sugar plantations took hold during the mid 1900s. The US Sugar Corporation was the largest manufacturer in the city, and Clewiston came to be known as "America's Sweetest Town." - Chosen by @damon_powers

Congratulations! You’ve been featured: @ch808_shoots . Selected by: @jasonmillerphotography . Anna Maria Island was only accessible by boat until 1921, when the wooden Cortez Bridge was constructed from the fishing village of Cortez to what is now Bridge Street in Bradenton Beach. The remaining parts of the Cortez Bridge are used as a fishing pier. In 1938 Siam Garden Resort began a fish camp and in 1948, MGM brought Esther Williams, Peter Lawford, Ricardo Montalban, Jimmy Durante, Cyd Charisse, and Xavier Cugat to Anna Maria Island to film “On an Island with You." In the plot "a beautiful movie star travels to Hawaii and finds romance in this South Seas musical.” Anna Maria Island could be your next chance to find your dream. . . . #roamflorida #florida #all_beautyaddiction #pureflorida #floridalife #visitflorida #gulfofmexico #saltlife #picoftheday #loveflorida #sunshinestate #explorida #lovefl #longexposure #beautifuldestinations #turtle #coastalliving #reflection #earth_shotz #igtravel

Cape Coral, Florida

Beautiful sunrise captured by @kve239 in Cape Coral, FL🌅 - Until the birth of Cape Coral, the area was simply known as “the other side of the river” by homesteaders, loggers, cattlemen, professional fishermen, and sportsmen. However, in 1957 Leonard and Jack Rosen changed that by purchasing a 103 square mile tract, known as Redfish Point, for $678,000. The Gulf American Corporation was formed to develop this “Waterfront Wonderland” and on November 4th of that year, ground was officially broken as Cape Coral. Early in 1958, a stretch of “Miracle Mile”, later named Cape Coral Parkway, extended east from Coronado for one mile, and a main intersection was soon formed where it met Harney Point Road, now Del Prado Blvd. There was only one building located in Cape Coral, which was a fourplex at the corner of Cape Coral Parkway and Coronado Parkway, housing land sales offices. Through GAC, the development grew at a remarkable pace, and on June 10, 1958, the first residents moved in. These pioneers had to drive forever to get anywhere – 20 miles for a loaf of bread! Cape Coral was promoted like no other Florida development, through a mail order program with ads on radio, television and print media. In 1959, water view home sites were sold for $990, waterfront was sold for $1,900, and riverfront cost $3,390. Property sales reached over $9 million after the first year and planeloads of curious northerners were soon flown down for a quick look and a heavy sales pitch, landing an out-of-the-way strip, now called 47th Terrace. On March 14, 1964, the two-lane Cape Coral Bridge was opened, making the area even more accessible to potential buyers. Interestingly, as far back as 1959 when the best location for a bridge was being considered, engineers picked a location connecting Everest Parkway with Colonial Blvd., now the location of the Midpoint Memorial Bridge. However, due to construction costs and proximity to the area of initial development, the Cape Coral Parkway to Braden-Sutphin Rd. (now College Parkway) route was chosen. The city was incorporated in 1970 with a population of 11,470, making it the 3rd largest city in a land mass in Florida. - Chosen by @damon_powers

Congratulations! You’ve been featured: @yesaccasey🐢 . Today’s feature was chosen because it was a beautiful shot and also as a tribute to Tate the baby turtle on Roam Florida’s Instagram Stories today. He did make it successfully, BTW🐢 . Florida sea turtles nest on beaches typically from April – October with some variability depending on their species. A female typically nests every 2 or 3 years and can lay several nests during one nesting season. They dig nests with their back flippers and deposit about 100 eggs, each the size of a ping pong ball. They disguise their nest by flinging loose sand over it, and once a female leaves the nest she does not return. Eggs incubate for about 2 months, then hatchlings make their way to the surface and emerge at night when the sand cools. Hatchlings scramble to open water and swim to shore. As turtles grow older, they swim into coastal waters. In the past 100 years their numbers have been greatly reduced and all species are in danger of extinction. A main danger to hatchlings is from artificial lighting. Hatchlings move toward the brightest direction, normally the sky over the ocean. However, artificial lights adjacent to beaches cause them to crawl in the wrong direction. If you live near a beach, you can help by keeping outside lights off during turtle nesting season and removing chairs and other objects from the beach at night; level sand castles and fill any holes dug during the day. Use trash containers for all trash.🐢 .
