Because its terrain is mostly flat, Florida's geographical features would be more or less boring, if there wouldn't be 10,000 lakes, the Florida Keys with thousands of islands and islets, the second longest coastline in the entire USA (after Alaska), with a length of 2,170 km (1,350 miles), making it a very long beach, and there are the Big Cypress Swamp and The Everglades, a large area of subtropical wetlands in the southern portion of the U.S. state. Everglades National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
And, its climate ranges from sub-tropical to tropical.

As mentioned above, the State of Florida is situated on a peninsula, which consists of karst limestone sitting atop bedrock known as the Florida Platform. The Florida peninsula is bordered by the Gulf of Mexico in west, by the Atlantic Ocean in east and by the Straits of Florida in south. Several Caribbean countries are geographically close to Florida, particularly The Bahamas and Cuba.

Highest natural point in the state is Britton Hill with a summit elevation of 105 m (345 ft), the highest peak would be on top of the Four Seasons Hotel Miami with 240 m (789 ft).

Largest freshwater lake in the state of Florida is Lake Okeechobee (surface area 1,900 km² (730 sq mi)), referred to by locals as The Lake or The Big O.
