Recent internal data lists $35 billion of Florida land listings and rural property for sale. With tens of thousands of properties and rural land for sale in the state, LandWatch boasts zero acres of land for sale in the state. The average price of farms, ranches and other land parcels for sale in Florida is $529,544. U.S. Department of Agriculture data shows Florida is one of the biggest peanut-farming states in the country. Unsurprisingly, Florida is the citrus-growing heart of the country (followed by California). The state also produces over half of the sugarcane and grapefruits in the United States. The state has been ranked among the ten best states for retirees by Kiplinger. In terms of landmass, Florida is the country's 22nd-largest state, encompassing 65,758 square miles (42 million acres). Wildlife to be found on land for sale in Florida include turkey, whitetail deer, quail, dove, hog, and ducks. Anglers can enjoy casting for bass, catfish, trout, and walleye.

As befits a state that straddles the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico, it's no wonder Florida likes to call itself the "Fishing Capital of the World." The state has 7,700 lakes, 10,550 miles of rivers, and 2,276 miles of tidal shoreline where fish on the hook include tarpon, sailfish, largemouth bass, and sea trout. Species to hunt in Florida include deer, hogs, alligator and, yes, the invasive Burmese python.

More Information About Florida

Florida, nicknamed "The Sunshine State," means "land of flowers" in Spanish, due to its naming by explorer Ponce de Len, who landed there in the spring when all the flowers were in bloom. It borders the Gulf of Mexico to the west, with Alabama and Georgia to the north. It is also bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the east, and the Straits of Florida and Cuba to the south. Florida has the longest coastline in the contiguous U.S., with approximately 1,350 miles of coastline. Most of Florida is at or below sea level. It is the third most populated state and is 23rd in size at 59,988 square miles. Jacksonville is the largest city by area in the contiguous U.S., but Miami is the most populated urban area in Florida. Other large cities include Tampa and Orlando; Tallahassee is the state capital.

Florida's climate throughout the state is generally warm, temperate, and tropical, due to its proximity to the warm ocean, though some areas can get a little cooler in the winter. This makes it a prime destination for tourists and even a second home for retirees from the Midwest and other areas with harsher winters.

Not surprisingly, tourism is an essential part of the economy. Many beach towns are vacation destinations, as are amusement parks, such as Walt Disney World in the Orlando area. Disney World alone attracts more than 50 million annual visitors, and there are other major theme parks in the area, such as Universal Orlando, SeaWorld, and Busch Gardens. Agriculture is another industry which contributes to the economy, second after tourism. Products are citrus fruits, sugarcane, strawberries, tomatoes, celery, sweet corn, and green beans. Florida produces most of the citrus products in the U.S. Commercial and recreational fishing also contribute much to the state's economy. Other industries in the state are construction, international banking, biomedical and life sciences, healthcare research, aerospace and defense, and commercial space travel. Florida is the leading state for sales of power boats.
