There’s no limit to what you can do in Florida, which is why this list only begins to scratch the surface of the top things to do in this great state.
Experience Walt Disney World, Orlando
Is any trip to America complete without a visit to one of the best theme parks? Along with some of the best and favored rides like Space Mountain and the Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster, Walt Disney World houses fantastic resorts, fun shops and some of the best shows, meaning fun for all the family. Not to mention making all your Disney dreams come true.
Visit Fort Lauderdale
This gem of Florida is a beautiful place to visit, with its relaxing gondola rides along the pristine canals leading to its nickname of the Venice of America. Fort Lauderdale is also famous for its offering of beaches, art and culture and exciting events. Do some shopping on Las Olas Boulevard, visit the historic riverfront or take a hike into the green Everglades. Fort Lauderdale is the perfect destination for a luxurious experience in Florida, so kick off your trip with a private jet charter to Fort Lauderdale and follow up with a room with a view of the ocean and your access to your hotel’s private beach.
See the Kennedy Space Center
If space history is your kind of thing, or you’re just ticking off the ultimate American experiences to be had, then the Kennedy Space Center is the perfect place. This center boasts 140,00 acres devoted to being one of the most important sites in the USA, and has been the site for some of the most iconic space shuttle launches in American history.
There is a variety of displays and exhibitions on show in the large visitor center, and you can even grab yourself a ticket to a rocket launch if you time your trip just right.
Relax on Miami Beach
If you’re visiting Florida, then it would be a waste not to make the most of at least one of the golden, sandy beaches. Miami beach is located on an island which can be reached via a series of bridges from mainland Florida, and has a host of art deco beach side buildings. You won’t go hungry, either, due to the large selection of restaurants lining the golden sand on the famous Ocean Drive. You can also bag yourself a hotel in the same spot, meaning you can be right on the beach’s doorstep.
See Dry Tortugas National Park
Built in the 1800s by the US Government, the iconic structure of Fort Jefferson can be found on Dry Tortugas, which is accessible only by a boat which sails from Key West. Visiting this historical landmark can be combined with snorkeling or relaxing on the beach due to the glorious reef islands found in this park.
