    Native American Place Names on Florida’s Adventure Coast

    Long before today’s culturally blended society, Florida’s Adventure Coast was populated by Native Americans. It doesn’t take long to notice the lasting evidence of those original populations in the names of locations still in use today. Many of the names trace back to the Seminole Indians, reflecting the Muskogean language family, originating as either Creek or Miccosukee.

    Here is a short guide to some of those distinctive words you see around here and how to pronounce them.

    November is Manatee Awareness Month

    To help protect the Sunshine State’s official marine mammal, November is officially Manatee Awareness Month. At this time of year, these large, gentle, slow-moving creatures seek the warmer waters of our springs and coastal estuaries. With a watchful eye, (helped by polarized sunglasses) and compliance to No-Wake Zones, boaters can give them plenty of space.
