Florida

Explanation:

[STC00179] The Peace River, which runs for 106 miles through the southwestern portion of the Florida peninsula, was given its name (Rio de la Paz) for the first time on maps created by Spanish explorers in the 16th century.

However, the Creek and Seminole Native Americans called it something else entirely: ‘Talakchopcohatchee’ (‘River of Long Peas’).

In close proximity to Punta Gorda is where the river empties into the Charlotte Harbor estuary on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico.

The river’s freshwater helps regulate the harbor’s salinity, creating an environment for varied wildlife and supplying drinking water to those in its watershed.
