Theme parks

When Walt Disney’s grand plans for Magic Kingdom were brought to life in Orlando back in the Seventies, it set the precedent for things to come. Today, the Sunshine State is the world leader when it comes to theme parks. There are no less than 15, including 6 Disney creations, and other household names like Universal Studios Florida®, SeaWorld® Orlando and Busch Gardens® Tampa Bay.

Malls, greens and restaurants

White-knuckle rides and worlds of make-believe are only part of the picture, though. With city-sized malls, world-class golf courses and more restaurants per head than any other US state, Florida pulls out all the stops to impress the tens of millions of visitors it receives every year.

The everglades

Pierce the tourist bubble, meanwhile, and you’ll discover national parks, dense forests and swamplands teeming with the region’s resident alligators. The Everglades are your best bet for outdoor adventure – hiking, kayaking and hot-air ballooning are just a few of the ways you can explore.

The beach scene

Then there are the beaches to consider. Shelving gently into the warm waters of the Gulf Coast, the swathes at St Pete’s, Fort Myers and Clearwater are among the best in the country.
