From the allure and excitement of Miami to endless family fun in Orlando, Florida remains one of America’s quintessential vacation destinations.
A popular winter getaway for more than 100 years, the Sunshine State is often lauded for white sandy beaches and some of the world’s most well-known theme parks, including Disney World, Universal Studios, SeaWorld, and Busch Gardens. Florida is also famous for its fishing, surfing, scuba diving, and diverse ecosystems.
In addition, the state is renowned for its thriving art and musical scene, rich and diverse culture, and abundance of tropical fruits, including oranges and grapefruits, popular exports across the globe. Florida is also home to a variety of historic and cultural sites, including the Hemingway House in the Keys and Kennedy Space Center on Merritt Island.
Along with its other amenities, Florida is a sport’s fan’s dream, with eight major franchises representing all four professional leagues, as well as much of Major League Baseball’s Spring Training schedule. Sports enthusiasts are not just relegated to watching their favorite games, however. With a vast array of golf courses, tennis centers, and recreational opportunities of every kind, participants of all ages and skill levels are assured of finding year-round enjoyment.
From sun and fun along the coast, to hot cosmopolitan destinations like South Beach, to historic St. Augustine, America’s oldest city, Florida runs the gamut, offering something for everyone!
