Florida


Florida at a glance

Ahhh, Florida! Its gorgeous beaches, warm weather and inviting locals have rightfully earned it the nickname, “The Sunshine State”. Indulge in the sizzle and heat of Miami’s Latin culture, relive your childhood at Walt Disney World and Universal Studios in Orlando, relax in Caribbean style in the Keys or paddle the serene rivers of Northern Florida in a kayak. After you’ve checked these from the list, have lunch with an astronaut at the Kennedy Space Centre, sip from the Fountain of Youth in St. Augustine, hike the rugged trails of Ocala National Forest and head to the island of Sanibel to collect the most beautiful of seashells.

Florida is known internationally as a beach destination, and while the state has many other attractions, no trip to the Sunshine State would be complete without at least one beach day. These are 10 of the top rated beaches in Florida:

  • Del Ray Beach
  • Clearwater Beach
  • Naples
  • Sanibel Beach
  • South Beach
  • Siesta Key Beach
  • Atlantic Beach
  • Key West
  • Palm Beach
  • Captiva Island
