Home of Disney World and NASA's Kennedy Space Center, the Sunshine State was discovered by Ponce de Leon in 1513 in his search for the fountain of youth. The state's sun and surf draw thousands of people to Florida each year. Some experts are projecting the state's population will continue to grow, and a large number of those newcomers may be retirees.
