An assortment of beaches, amusement parks and national parks makes Florida one of the best destination for tourists in America. This is equally true for both the families as well as young solo travelers.

Orlando in particular is a favorite destination for families due to the presense of two major theme parks. While people looking to soak up some Sun and party till morning head to the coastal city of Miami.

Fort Lauderdale, Florida Keys are popular for their slower pace lifestyle where things seem to stop. Key West, in particular, gives a feeling of being Carrabin and not in America!

Typically, you take a bus tour which allows you to have a peek at certain restricted areas, such as launch sites. Set aside at least half a day explore the Kennedy Space Center, as it takes time to really immerse yourself in the exhibits.

Kennedy Space Center is also a popular day trip from the city of Orlando as it only an hour away.

Among the top rides that visitors to Universal Studios love are 3D and 4D simulator rides. Universal’s Volcano Bay is another highlight of the theme park. If you are traveling with children, there are also rides particularly meant for younger children to enjoy.

I particularly loved the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. It’s a truely immersive experience that every Potterhead should have. You can board a Hogwarts Express on that 3.5! and also explore the wonderfully done Hogsmeade Village.

 

Miami Beach

Miami Beach is one of the top beaches in Florida. The feeling of lying on a mat on a long wide stretch of golden sand on Atlantic coast is simply out of the world. One of the top things to near Miami Beach is the Art Deco scene in the Historic District. Looking at the well restored  buildings of 1930s and 1940s create an atmosphere which is difficult to have anywhere else in the country.

The whole scenic ocean drive along the beautiful Miami beach is lined up with high-end hotels, and fine dining restaurants.

 

Everglades National Park

Spread across 1.5 million acres Everglades National Park is a vast expanse containing a wide variety of landscape and wild species. – marsh – swamp, – important – fragile ecosystem – supports alligators, American crocodiles, Florida panthers, deer, turtles, egrets, manatees, river otters, – many other species.

Everglades National Park is considered one of the largest National parks in America.

I will suggest to take the Airboat rides to truly enjoy Everglades. The boat takes you through the wetlands, swamps and marshland and gives you an opportunity to see the wild American alligators among species of animals. The national park can easily be reached from Miami as a half day tour.

 

Sea World Orlando

Walt Disney World, Sea World Orlando, as the name suggests is a water based amusement park and an ideal getaway to beat the heat of the city. The large complex features shows from several animals, including dolphin shows, whale shows, sea lions performance. There are also penguins on display, which can be seen in the Antarctica – Empire.
