Florida Trend: 55th Anniversary

55 Years of Florida Trend

As the magazine turns 55, we review some interesting covers and the articles inside.

| 12/9/2013

Record Holder

Jeb Bush’s record established him as one of Florida’s most influential governors. The March 2006 issue was the third time he had been pictured on Florida Trend’s cover — the most ever by any politician.

Students

Education-related coverage has become a hallmark of Florida Trend in recent years. This cover from August 2006 profiled students from the U.S., Korea, Germany and several other countries and examined the courses they were taking and their overall high school experiences.

Boom

The cover story, featuring the McGowan family, recent arrivals in south Florida, profiled Florida’s average daily population growth and the demographics of the new arrivals to Florida who fueled the real estate boom. The story has an almost ominous tone seen against the coming housing bust and recession. In a sidebar, Jeb Bush was quoted warning of the need to engineer solutions to the impact of growth on the ecosystem: “I don’t think God created Florida with 17 million growing to 25 million people in mind.”
