Long Description:

Travelers are cheerfully greeted at the I-95 rest area with a multi-part structure on the west side of a round plaza near the north end of the parking lots. The "Florida Welcomes You" message is suspended across two tall obelisks at the Visitors Center in Yulee, two miles south of the Georgia border.

The dimensional sign consists of a gentle, gray-colored arc with the text centered and mounted to its front side. White lettering is against a blue background; a yellow sunburst takes the place of the "O" in the state's name. Those elements appear to be held up by a set of ten metal rods attached at decorative angles to the 15 foot tall obelisks. The columns are identical: tapering square in from with a stylized palm leaf design on their capitals.

"Florida is the southeasternmost U.S. state, with the Atlantic on [the east] side and the Gulf of Mexico on [the west]. It has hundreds of miles of beaches. The city of Miami is known for its Latin-American cultural influences and notable arts scene, as well as its nightlife, especially in upscale South Beach. Orlando is famed for theme parks, including Walt Disney World." Source: Google
