Some Facts About Florida. Florida entered the Union on March 3, 1845, as the 27th state. A low-lying area with an average elevation of only 30 m (100 ft) above sea level, Florida ranks with Louisiana as the second lowest state in the Union, after Delaware. The highest point in Florida, a hill in the panhandle, is 105 m (345 ft) above sea level. Florida's state bird is the Mockingbird; the state flower, the orange blossom; tree, the Sabal Palmetto Palm. The state song is Stephen Foster's Swanee River (Old Folks At Home). A cranky old cuss I know suggested it should be changed to I Love A Parade because of the way some drivers get their kicks by driving slow and having traffic back up behind them. I don't know about that. Florida has more than 7000 lakes greater than 4 hectares (10 acres) in size. Most of these are in the lake district of the Florida peninsula. The largest lake in the state is Lake Okeechobee. It is the fourth largest natural lake wholly within the United States. Florida has the longest coastline of all the states after Alaska. The coastline is about 2170 km (about 1350 miles) long, but, including all indentations and islands, it measures 13,560 km (8426 miles).
