Florida is a state in the south eastern of the United States, bordered to the west by the Gulf of Mexico, to the north by Alabama and Georgia and to the east by the Atlantic Ocean. Much of Florida is a peninsula between the Gulf of Mexico, the Atlantic Ocean, and the Straits of Florida. Its geography is notable for a coastline, omnipresent water and the threat of hurricanes. Florida has the longest coastline in the contiguous United States and is the only state that borders both the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean. The climate varies from subtropical in the north to tropical in the south. Some of its most iconic animals, such as the American alligator, crocodile, Florida panther and the manatee, can be found in the Everglades, one of the most famous national parks in the world.
Florida is distinguished by its large Hispanic community and high population growth, as well as its increasing environmental concerns. Its economy relies mainly on tourism, agriculture, and transportation, which developed in the late 19th century. Florida is also known for its amusement parks, the production of oranges, and the Kennedy Space Centre. Florida culture is a reflection of influences and multiple inheritance; Native American, European American, Hispanic and African American heritages can be found in the architecture and cuisine. It is internationally known for golf, tennis, auto racing, and water sports.

HOW IT WORKS
Membership to Global X'scapes allows you to visit and host as often as you like in a year. Simply find hosts in the destination you have on your adventure-list and agree on suitable dates to visit. Once you've agreed on dates, you will go to that destination and be hosted as guests in their house, providing free accommodation, food (excluding dining out) and transport for sightseeing.
Upon return to your home country, you will host the same family you visited in your home as guests, providing the same experience to your guests as they provided you (and your family).
To ensure fair hosting and visiting, Global X'scapes issues you with one point when you take up membership for $99-00 per year to track visits and hosting - keeping the system balanced.
Once you have visited the host, your point will transfer to that host leaving you with 0 and the host with 2. That host must now visit you in order to transfer the point back to you leaving you free to visit again (even in the same membership year).
Quick and easy
For only $99-00 per year, you can now visit any destination as often as you like by being hosted by wonderful people and return the hospitality by hosting your new-found friends in your country. Accommodation, meals and transport is free of charge on both parts and thus this is one of the cheapest ways to see the world and make new friends. Membership at $99-00 provides you with access to free accommodation, local transport and meals unlimited times per year (provided you have closed the loop by hosting in return). Register for free and browse destinations, hosts and guests. Also included in free membership is book-marking your favourites and introduction conversation.
