Why A Florida Holiday Isn’t Just About The Theme Parks

June 25, 2019

Florida is an example of a perfect holiday destination. Great weather, great beaches, and there are plenty of things to do. Many people, especially from the UK, flock to Florida every year to experience some of the magic that Florida has to offer. However, a large part of those people go to Florida to experience what it’s most famous for – its theme parks.

But can you still visit Florida if you don’t like theme parks? Of course, you can – most of which are in Orlando anyway, which is just one part of Florida. Florida has plenty to offer whether you love or you loathe them, so you can be sure of finding plenty to do. Take a look below at some of the reasons you should visit Florida.

The beaches

Those aerial shots of Florida always show off its incredible beaches, and they’re even better in real life. During your visit you’ll want to explore some of Florida’s best beaches like Miami Beach, South Beach as well as various beaches in the Florida Keys. Most of the beaches have plenty of watersports and other activities going on, or you can hunt down some quiet spots and make the most of the weather!

Explore the coast by sea

Is there anything better than spending your days relaxing at sea? It’s a must to hire a boat and enjoy a day spent exploring the coast. You can get affordable boat rental in Miami so that you can enjoy the life of luxury for a day on that beautiful blue water. You might also want to consider taking a helicopter ride so that you can get an even closer look at that amazing skyline.

The nightlife

If you like spending your evenings enjoying good music, great food and a lot of dancing then you’ll want to head to Miami and experience the incredible nightlife there. Get some inspiration for some incredible nights out by checking out some of Miami’s best bars and make some great memories in Florida.

Enjoy other tourist attractions 

While Florida is known for its range of theme parks, there are a lot of other visitor attractions that are worth seeing during your visit. The Kennedy Space Centre makes a fantastic day out to learn more about space exploration, while animal lovers will be able to check out Florida’s amazing zoos, dolphin tours and, of course, alligator trips! With great weather and an incredible atmosphere, you’ll find plenty to do as part of your visit.

If Florida sounds like your dream holiday destination, get packing and book your trip. America is a great place to visit at any time of year, so you could combine your Florida trip with visits to other fantastic destinations like New York and California. Cruises often depart from Florida too, so you’ve got a great excuse to add a few more days onto your trip to enjoy the Sunshine State while exploring the Caribbean or South America!
