Perhaps the most diverse holiday destination in the United States, Florida offers plenty of fun in the sun for every traveller to get excited about. Here are just some of the exciting activities all age groups can enjoy while in the Sunshine State:
Whether you want to experience the magic at Walt Disney World ®, release your inner film buff at Universal Studios Florida ™, or walk through lands of actual LEGO creations at Legoland, you and the kids will be spoilt for choice when it comes to world-famous theme parks in Central Florida.
Other activities perfect for families include making a splash under the glow of the famous Florida sun or building sandcastles on the 825 miles of beaches to choose from in Florida, exploring the Everglades National Park on a swamp safari or seeing alligators at Gatorland in Orlando if you’re not brave enough, or visiting museums like the most famous interstellar sightseeing spot – the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral.
Florida is an adults playground, with its craft-beer trails and micro-breweries, beaches and amazing food, there is serious fun to be had.
Release your inner child and take your pick of Florida’s many theme parks and attractions – they’re not just for kids, after all. Universal Orlando Resort ™ is a great option for film buffs and rides enthusiasts, while Busch Gardens Tampa Bay is perfect for animal lovers!
Shopaholics rejoice, the Sunshine State is jam-packed with quirky boutiques and indie shops, as well as prestigious luxury shopping centres and colossal discount outlets.
Sports enthusiasts will never be bored; try a new watersport or work your way around a pristine golf course, and don’t miss the chance to see world-class sport played out at a hockey, baseball or football game.
Couples will love being pampered in one of the many spas, or taking a romantic stroll through the beautiful botanical gardens. In the evening, why not see a show? Then carry the night on in style by dining out and sampling authentic local cuisine, before enjoying a cocktail or more in a lively nightclub or bar.
Florida is a great destination for group holidays as it has something to suit all tastes – beautiful beaches, lively bars, interesting museums, unforgettable theme parks and day trips to keep everyone entertained.
The variety means that you all have the choice to split up during the day so everyone can do what they enjoy, and meet up later in the day for a meal or activity. For instance, if diving beneath the surface of the John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park isn’t your thing, why not try horseback riding at Westgate River Ranch, or tick off another thing that you didn’t even realise was on your bucket list? The possibilities are endless.
It could even be an idea to hire a car (or two) to get around quickly and cheaply and enjoy day trips to places to places like Fort Lauderdale or Daytona Beach as a group.
