Enjoy the fun and natural beauty of the Sunshine State

Florida is the Spanish word for ‘land of flowers’ and it’s also known locally as the Sunshine State. This gives you some idea why the region is such a hugely popular holiday destination.

You get an exciting mix of contrasts when you visit Florida. It has miles of sandy beaches, including Clearwater’s gulf coast, world-class theme parks in Orlando and the wildlife wilderness of the Florida Everglades, less than an hour’s drive from vibrant Miami.

All this makes family holidays to Florida ideal, as well as quieter getaways spent sunbathing, golfing or simply sitting back and relaxing. As the temperature rarely drops below 21°C between March and November it’s also a fantastic choice for soaking up some shoulder season warmth for cheap Florida holidays.
