Look at any map of Florida and what do you see? Water.
The Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean surround the state on three sides. Lakes like Istokpoga, George and Okeechobee — Florida’s biggest, and one of the largest in the country — are just a few of the more than 30,000 lakes in the state. And countless rivers, streams and waterways, numbering more than 11,000 miles in total, criss-cross the land from coast to coast.
