Florida is the land of sunshine, smiles, beaches, and fun. People come from all over the country and all over the world to experience Florida’s infamous beaches, incredible nightlife, and many unique attractions. Plan to stay for at least a few days, if not a couple weeks to fully experience the many joys that Florida has to offer. Bring a lot of suntan lotion, sunscreen and a healthy appetite for excitement.
What’s there to do in Florida? There are so many different activities to choose from that there’ll hardly be a dull moment on your vacation. Here are just five of the amazing things you can do in Florida.
1. Walt Disney World
Walt Disney World is one of the most popular attractions in Florida. Whether you’re a 4-year-old child or a 40-year-old adult, there’s something in this park for everyone.
For kids, you have everything that the world of Disney has to offer. You have dozens of different rides to choose from. All kinds of incredible foods in every direction. There are tons of attractions, from 3D movies to live plays. You can also meet all your favorite Disney characters.
For adults, there’s also plenty of golfing, as well as luxury experiences like relaxing massages or world class cuisines from all around the world.
2. Miami Seaquarium
It’s not every day that you get to meet human-friendly dolphins, killer whales, and other aquatic animals. Few aquariums around the country offer this kind of show. Those that do, can often only offer the show certain times of the year when weather permits. Not so at the Miami Seaquarium — here, the show runs all year.
For kids, this can be both an exciting experience and an educational experience. Going to the Seaquarium is the perfect way to teach your child about sea life, about the ocean and about life at large.
3. Explore the Florida Keys
The Florida Keys is one of the most popular destinations for people visiting Florida. It’s a long, narrow strip of land made up of over 800 different islands. There are rich forests and lush aquatic oceanic life to explore and enjoy.
The John Pennekamp Park in the Florida Keys is the first completely underwater park in the country. You can view all kinds of sea life from the safe sanctuary of this gigantic underwater capsule.
For the more adventurous, the Florida Keys is a fantastic place to go diving or snorkeling.
4. Kennedy Space Center
The Kennedy Space Center, which resides on Merritt Island in Florida, is the rocket launch pad for every United States space flight that had a human being in it. When people talk about the east coast and Florida being the “Space Coast,” this is what they’re talking about.
The Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex has a myriad of space-related displays. There are interactive screens kids can play with and even life-sized rocket pods kids can get into. There are two IMAX theatres on the complex.
One especially unique attraction of the Kennedy Space Center is the rocket garden. The rocket garden houses many different space crafts, including The Mercury-Redstone, Mercury-Atlas, Titan II, Juno I, Juno II, Thor-Delta and Atlas-Agena spacecraft.
If you’re interested in science, do take the time to visit the Kennedy Space Center.
5. Go to South Beach
South Beach is one of the most famous beaches in the United States, second only perhaps to California’s shores.
If you’re staying at a beach hotel, you can enjoy free umbrella service, lounge chairs, towel service, and a cozy exclusive atmosphere. If you’re staying somewhere else, you can enjoy the freedom to walk the miles of white sandy beach and swim in the crystal clear waters that South Beach is so famous for.
All along the beach are absolutely amazing cuisines that in and of itself would be worth the visit. There are plenty of unique places to shop, as well as the incredibly creative Art Deco District to explore.
Florida is full of adventures. Whether you’re alone and looking to party, with a significant other and looking to relax or with kids and looking to have a fun family vacation, Florida has something for everyone.
