Vacations in Florida

Vacations in Florida can be the stuff dreams are made of. After all, we have miles of sandy beaches with tropical waters. The weather is warm most of the year around the state (and pretty much all year around in South Florida and the Florida Keys). Not to mention our nickname, the "Sunshine State" is well-deserved!

So, what are you thinking of for your Florida vacation? Let's take a look at some locations around the state and see what tickles your fancy!


Life's a Beach

Our Florida beaches have a wonderful reputation for being beautiful. And since we've got so many, there's a beach for everyone's ideal vacation. Want something quiet? Lively? Family-friendly? We've got a beach for you! It's truely amazing, what Florida has to offer.

Vacations in Florida - BeachesAnd to prove it, here are some of the best beaches in Florida! You'll find plenty of photos, beaches, places to stay and ideas for the perfect Florida beach vacation.

Great Disney Vacations

It's almost a rule (or so it sometimes seems) that if you come to Florida on a vacation, you just have to visit Mickey Mouse at Walt Disney World.

And really, it's with good reason -- Disney in Florida is one of the world's best theme parks. Ok, I'll admit, it can sometimes be expensive, but it doesn't have to be -- here are some tips on booking Walt Disney World vacation packages that won't destroy your budget (and just might be a whole lot more affordable than you thought).

And although I mentioned Disney World, don't forget there are also other great attractions in Central Florida and around the state as well. In fact, here are some of Florida's "lost attractions" that don't often make it into the guide books!

Let's see...what else? Ah, I know!

Florida Outdoors

Vacations in Florida OutdoorsVacations in Florida wouldn't be complete without mentioning the great outdoors. And while beaches are outdoors, I'm also talking about watery fun (diving and snorkeling), boating, fishing and camping.

Did you know that the only living coral reef in the continental United States is right here in Florida? If you go down to the Florida Keys, you can see it in all of its glory. You can even see it without getting wet by taking a glass-bottom boat tour!

If you're into boating, be it power boat, kayak or canoe, there are lots of places in Florida to enjoy. We have a boatload (pardon the pun) of lakes and rivers, not to mention the lagoons, estuaries and other waterways. A lot of the Florida State Parks also rent boats of all kinds, so you can explore even if you don't have one of your own.

How about camping in Florida? Maybe fishing in the Florida Keys? Or even just relaxing and watching the wildlife (Shark Valley in the Florida Everglades is great for that!).

Vacations in Florida

I hope I've given you some ideas for some of the wonderful vacations in Florida that await you. Of course in any of these destinations you'll find shopping nearby and great places to stay. Not to mention a gastronomic feast at some of the restaurants.

So come on down and visit, because vacations in Florida are what you remember for a lifetime!
