8 things that make Florida the perfect holiday destination

Florida is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the world. It’s so often people’s ‘dream destination’; one to cross off the bucket list and hold onto the memories for years to come. If you’re lucky enough to have been to Florida before, then you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about. But for those who haven’t, here’s a bit more of an insight into what makes Florida the perfect holiday destination. And, before you rule it out as being too expensive, I encourage you to read on. Trust me; you might be surprised.

1) The Year-round sunshine

There’s a reason that Florida’s known as the sunshine state. No matter what time of year you choose to visit, it basks in sunshine pretty much all the time. Take a look at our useful Florida weather tool to decide when's best for you to visit.

2) The Incredible theme parks

Florida is home to some of the best theme parks and waterparks, not only in the USA, but the whole world. Experience the magic of Walt Disney World Resort™ and the action of Universal Orlando Resort™, to name just two.

3) The non-stop attractions

The fun doesn’t stop at the theme parks. There’s so much going on in Florida that the whole family will love; from International Drive with the Orlando Eye, to Kissimmee, Lake Buena Vista and, of course, the Kennedy Space Centre.

4) The beaches

With all the amazing theme parks and attractions that Florida’s so famous for, it can sometimes be easy to forget that it’s home to some stunning beaches too. Soak up the sun at Fort Lauderdale or do a bit of celeb spotting at South Beach in Miami.

5) The food

It’s no secret that the USA loves food, so you know that whatever you eat over there is going to be incredible. And not only incredible, but supersize too. Eating isn’t just a necessity while on holiday in Florida; it’s all part of the experience.

6) The shopping

There are so many huge malls and designer outlets in Florida that it’d be a crime not to bag yourself a few bargains while you’re there. Take a break from the attractions and indulge in some retail therapy at the Lake Buena Vista Factory Stores or Orlando Premium Outlets®.

7) The Everglades

People of all ages will love an outdoor adventure on the waters at The Everglades National Park. Admire the impressive landscapes and keep an eye out for some fascinating wildlife, such as crocodiles and manatees in their natural habitats.
