Flat Stanley's Adventure to Naples, Florida

I visited the city of Naples in the state of Florida, USA for Spring Break with my family. Naples, FL is a beach community near the city of Ft. Meyers, FL and has a population of 21,653 people (but it seemed like a lot more with all of the people there on Spring Break!) Since Naples is 1200 miles from St. Louis, we flew there on an airplane, which took about 2 1/2 hours. Naples is a beautiful city and got it's name from the people who founded it in the late 1800's, who said that it resembled the bay of Naples, Italy.

Florida is not close to Italy.
Italy is a place where they have lots of pizza.
Where is Italy? (Italy is in Europe.)
Italy looks like a boot on a map.
Do people in Florida speak Spanish? (Some people do speak Spanish. Everyone usually speaks English there.)
