Florida: vacations in the sun, sand, sea and… Disney!

Located in the southeastern corner of the United States, Florida is surrounded by the Gulf of Mexico on its western shore and the Atlantic Ocean to the east. Its abundance of magnificent beaches is a major draw for travellers. Short flights to Florida mean travellers can touch down in Orlando or Fort Lauderdale and happily enjoy all the things to do the Sunshine State has to offer.

Things to do in Florida

From its food to its architecture, Florida has been defined by a variety of different influences, including European, Spanish, Afro-American and Native American. While a portion of any Florida vacation is usually reserved for beach fun, the state is also renowned for its sports, amazing arts scene and, of course, the nightlife in cities like Miami.

Take a drive

Exploring the Florida Keys is a popular road trip. Starting just south of Miami, which is accessible thanks to regular flights to Fort Lauderdale, the route meanders from Key Largo to Key West. Shopping, colourful drinks, beautiful sunsets, hiking, sea kayaking and ocean dips are all perfect ways to celebrate the relaxed, tropical atmosphere.

Disney World

Along with the beaches, Florida is associated with that most magical of places: Walt Disney World Resort. Children and adults alike enjoy exploring its four theme parks, as well as the water parks, restaurants and other family-friendly attractions.
