The city lies to the west of, and is contiguous with, Homestead. Both cities suffered catastrophic damage in August 1992, when Hurricane Andrew
struck South Florida.

Originally named Detroit, residents later voted on changing the name to Florida City. It has a small historic area, but much of the city is
hotels and other tourist facilities.

The city is at the eastern end of the only road running through the Everglades National Park, which terminates at Flamingo. Florida City is the
southernmost city in the United States which is not on an island. It is also the last stop on the mainland north of the Florida Keys.

The history of the twice-repeated annihilation of Florida Indians is, at the same time, the history of white settlers' rise to power. After
Christopher Columbus reached the New World at Hispaniola in 1492, the Caribbean islands became the base for wider searches, one of which
brought Juan Ponce de Leon to Florida. Sailing from Puerto Rico in search of the fabled island of Bimini, he sighted Florida on 27 March 1513
and reached the coast a week later. Ponce de Leon claimed the land for Spain and named it La Florida, for Pascua Florida, the Easter festival
of flowers; sailing southward around Florida, he may have traveled as far as Apalachicola, on the shore of the panhandle. In 1521, he returned
to found a colony at Charlotte Harbor, on the lower Gulf coast, but the Indians fought the settlers. After Ponce was seriously wounded, the
expedition sailed for Cuba, where he died the same year.
