How environment shaped the Florida experience
The environment shaped the Florida experience in many ways. First of all, the climate and general weather portion of the environment was very different from what settlers were used to. It was hot and muggy and there were so many new species of animals there. It was also extremely flat land, and easy to travel throughout which Americans weren't really used to (having acclimated to mountain ranges and steep terrain in other settlement areas). Florida was completely different from anything the settlers had known before because of the unique environment and location (panhandle). Settlers had to get used to such different things than they did before, and learned to deal with the environment and climate of Florida.
