This Nightclub In Florida Has A Dark And Evil History That Will Never Be Forgotten
At Only In Florida, we sometimes write about crime in the Sunshine State, but we’re usually focused on things like Florida’s most dangerous towns – those with the highest crime rate. We never could have guessed that our state would be the place with the most deadly mass shooting in U.S. history this year. As we look back on 2016, we’ll never forget the events at a nightclub in Orlando on June 12th.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
In November, the city of Orlando purchased the nightclub. Mayor Buddy Dyer stated that the city plans to create a permanent memorial.
How do you think that the city of Orlando can continue to recover from this terrible tragedy, and how can we prevent something like this from occurring in the future?
