Vacation Spots in Florida

Vacation spots in Florida; where to begin? There's a whole lot to do and see on your Florida vacation, especially outdoors. So what are some of your options?

Enjoy beaches? We've got over 600 miles of warm sands and tropical waters. Not to mention sunshine!

What about attractions? Most people know that Central Florida is "attraction central" (you can't go more than 10 miles at a stretch without seeing an advertisement for one of myriad attractions.

And then there's the undiscovered country -- outdoors Florida at the state and national parks. We have everything from underground (Florida Caverns) to underwater (John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park) state and national parks! (And yes, some "normal" ones as well, like the Florida Everglades.)

So let's take a look at some of the great vacation spots in Florida!


Florida Beach Vacation SpotsFlorida Beaches

One thing about Florida beaches, there's one for every personality. It doesn't matter if you like quiet beaches, like John D. MacArthur Florida Beach State Park or something more lively ones, like Daytona Beach. If you like surfing, check out Sebastian Inlet.

Florida Keys VacationWant some clear water and tropical coral reefs? You might want to check out Key West beaches. I'd never seen such crystal-clear water until I went to the Florida Keys -- it's awesome!

Another couple of beaches that deserve their own pages include Clearwater Beach (beautiful beach, calm waters) and the Captiva Island beaches -- especially great whether you like swimming, sunning or shelling! And if you're in the Florida Panhandle, check out Panama City Beach!

Florida Attractions - Which Ones?

We have a ton of attractions here in Florida, and of course, Walt Disney World is the undisputed king! But don't forget about SeaWorld, Universal Studios, or one of my own personal favorites -- Busch Gardens.

But Central Florida attractions aren't the only game in town! For example, St. Augustine attractions have a lot to see and do, packed into a small-ish city. For example, there is the Fountain of Youth and the St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park. Not to mention Ripley's Believe it or Not, Potter's Wax Museum and the St. Augustine ghost tours.

Florida Outdoors

Vacation Spots in FloridaObviously we have beaches galore, but what about other outdoors ideas?

Thinking about paddling around? There are lots of rivers, springs,lakes and estuaries for you to explore. The photo to your left was taken in Blue Spring State Park in Central Florida.

Islamorada in the Florida Keys is known as one of the world's premier fishing locations. Intrigued? Here's more info on Islamorada Florida fishing.

Diving and snorkeling are popular ways to spend time outdoors, and once again, the Florida Keys rule -- because of the ultra-clear water and the only living coral reef in the continental United States. So here you go -- scuba diving in Key Largo.

What's next? How about a little walk on the wild side -- Florida camping? And the Florida Parks (state and national) have some of the best camping you'll ever experience.
