Where to play
Renaissance holidaymakers have hit the jackpot with Florida, as this sunny destination’s activities are vast and varied. When it comes to sun, sand and a whole lot of energy, Florida has you covered.
In Clearwater you’ll find what TripAdvisor users have rated as the number one beach in the United States. Lined by white sand and backed by a popular promenade, it’s the stuff of dreams, padded with watersports opportunities and plenty of sunbathing space. St Pete Beach over in St Petersburg is another crowd favourite, ranking in the top five on the very same best-of list.
Sporty types can take to the green with the famous ChampionsGate Golf Club in the ChampionsGate resort. It attracts players from all over the world, was designed by architect and golf enthusiast Greg Norman and is added to by a golf academy nearby. For more low-key rounds, there’s also the Lake Buena Vista Golf Course in the resort of the same name.
We’re sure there are plenty of adults who find the bright lights of the Walt Disney World Resort alluring. One of the most thrilling areas is Epcot, where you can go around-the-world to 11 different countries, eating and drinking like a worldly pro. Disney’s Hollywood Studios is where you’ll find more of a nod to the franchise’s live action side, highlighting Disney branches like Star Wars and Indiana Jones. It’s also where you’ll find rollercoasters that are a little hairier than your classic Disney type.
Another adult playground is the 24-kilometre stretch known as International Drive. It not only connects the area’s best theme parks, but comes equipped with its own fun zones featuring indoor skydiving, crazy golf and a seriously massive ferris wheel called the Coca-Cola Orlando Eye.
