This is the map of Florida. On the map are all the cities in Florida.

Welcome to the gorgeous state of Florida! I'm going to tell you about the historical landmarks, physical features, resturaunts, and popular attractions. If you go to Florida by car, it takes six hours. From Atlanta to Tallahassee, it's 272.1 miles. What you would probably wear at this time would be a T-shirt and a tank-top, but you might want to wear long-sleeves in the morning because it gets kind of chilly. The average temperature in April is 82 degrees sunny and clear. Enjoy the presentation!
