Florida Overview

Florida Hotels

 

If you haven’t been to Florida, well why not?  Warm weather, fabulous beaches, intriguing history, incredible scenery and the most visited theme park resort in the world – wow, it’s no wonder Florida is the top destination in the U.S.! It’s 375 miles from Jacksonville in the north to Homestead at the southern tip, and if you continue offshore to Key West, it totals 500 miles. Thus, you will find the climate of north and south Florida to be different, particularly in the winter.  The northern panhandle even experiences frost and the occasional snowflake! 

Approximately 1,350 miles of shoreline draw millions of visitors to the state, and all kinds of Florida hotels may be found throughout. From top to bottom, tourism reigns in Florida. Largest city Jacksonville and capital Tallahassee are both located in northern Florida. Jacksonville is blessed with Atlantic Ocean beaches, a seaport on St. Johns River and the largest urban park system in the country, allowing visitors the opportunity to surf, ski, boat, swim and fish. Sports lovers will enjoy an NFL Jaguars game or attending golf’s annual Players Championship. Tallahassee is about three hours west of Jacksonville, and is home to Florida State and Florida A&M Universities. As state capital, governmental functions are centered here.

As you travel along the northern panhandle you can enjoy beautiful Gulf beaches with lovely grassy dunes in cities such as Panama City, Pensacola and Destin. This area is easily reached by car for those in the Midwest, and families flock here in the summer, year after year. Gulf Islands National Seashore and the top rated beaches of St. Joseph Peninsula State Park create one of Mother Nature’s finest natural water parks!

Orlando is located in central Florida, and it’s one of the greatest family playgrounds in the world! Major theme parks include Disney World, SeaWorld and Universal Studios, and some of the best water parks anywhere are found here. Spend an afternoon exploring the Orlando Museum of Art or the Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art, then cheer on the NBA Orlando Magic at the Amway Center. There’s guaranteed more to do than time available!

The Tampa/St. Petersburg area is located southwest of Orlando; you will find that the Gulf of Mexico gives a completely different feel. Waves are smaller, beaches are still beautiful and sunsets are colorful masterpieces. Busch Gardens features up-close interactions with animals along with extreme thrill rides and world-class shows. Don’t miss the first-rate Lowry Park Zoo, considered by many to be the best in the country, and attending an NFL Buccaneers or MLB Devil Rays ball game ices the cake. Canaveral National Seashore is just an hour east of Orlando; visit Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral to learn about the Space Shuttle, and Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge to see rare species. In far southeast Florida you will find the Miami/Hialeah area.

Miami Beach is the place to play in the waves by day, and dance and drink the night away at trendy clubs. Explore Historic Landmark Vizcaya Museum’s Italian gardens and 2,000 animals at the exciting Zoo Miami. Everglades National Park is a great draw; skimming across the waters on a   boat, you can enjoy alligators, manatee, birds and fish, many rare and endangered, which are native to this subtropical wilderness. Try snorkeling the most beautiful coral reefs at Biscayne National Park or taking a glass bottom boat tour at John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park in Key Largo. Just off the shore of the southern tip of Florida is a string of islands known as the Keys. If you would enjoy a drive with water on both sides of the highway, drive to Key West, the farthest southern point of the U.S.  The rumors are true - this city is laid back and a party all at the same time!

A visit to the Sunshine State is exactly what your family needs to create memories which will last a lifetime. Let’s go!
