The Sunshine State, as it is affectionately known, is America's most popular holiday destination thanks to its superb weather and the man-made attractions that have turned some areas into giant playgrounds for the young at heart.

Florida holidays are synonymous with theme parks and here it’s a case of the bigger the better with the huge Disney World theme park, Epcot, Discovery Cove, Universal Studios, SeaWorld and Disney’s Animal Kingdom just for starters!

Over on the east coast is The Kennedy Space Centre which offers visitors the opportunity to examine the history of space flight and find out what the future holds for mankind's exploration of space.

To the far south of the peninsula the land trails away from Miami into a series of small coral islands known collectively as The Florida Keys. Florida holidays in the Keys are all about fine dining, excellent shopping and nightlife, and soaking up the sun on the superb beaches. If you enjoy spending time by the ocean and stretching out on the beach then head for the Florida Keys.

The Everglades National Park injects a bit of great outdoors into your Florida holiday, with the prospect of seeing some of the indigenous wildlife of Florida. From alligators to pelicans, the wildlife is diverse and there's also the chance to take an airboat ride across the marshlands.

Florida holidays mean different things to different people, however there’s certainly no denying it really is a holiday that has something for everyone.

Did you know? It would take about 67 eight-hour days to visit all of the attractions in Orlando! That’s one very long and fun packed holiday!

Things to do on Florida Holidays

Florida Keys

The Florida Keys are a coral archipelago at the southern tip of the state, dividing the Gulf of Mexico from the Atlantic Ocean. It’s a great place for scuba diving but life on Florida Keys holidays is essentially all about chilling out and relaxing in style.

St Petersburg

Over on the west coast, the soft sandy beaches await you. From sheltered coves to vast expanses, you’ll discover some of America’s finest sands here, and some even more amazing sunsets.

Swimming with Dolphins

‘Discover a place beyond words’ at Discovery Cove. Swim and play with the dolphins, snorkel amongst thousands of exotic fish, feed tropical birds and relax on soft, sandy beaches. The whole family will love a day out in Discovery Cove.

Miami

Miami is an all action city with a year round mild climate and very accessible beaches. From the tips of its neon lit skyline to the depths of its fauna filled ocean, Miami works hard and plays hard. Holidays in Miami are usually action packed, however there’s always time for some R and R on these fantastic beaches.

Kennedy Space Centre

In the east of Orlando, the Kennedy Space Centre is NASA’s launch headquarters and home to the monumental space shuttles. Get an insight into the lives of the astronauts, tour the launch pad and even train in a flight simulator.

Everglades National Park

With over 1.5 million acres to explore, it can take more than one day to explore this fascinating terrain. Activities include canoeing, hiking, kayaking, biking and fishing, and of course, there’s the ultimate National Park activity – camping in the wilderness!
