Florida, United States
There’s a good reason more than 90 million people visit Florida every year: the ‘sunshine state’ is a true playground for all ages and interests.
With a semi-tropical climate and 1200 miles of coastline lapped by warm, tropical waters, it’s the ultimate beach destination.
Whether you want to swim and snorkel, surf or sail you’ll find a beach to suit your style. But beaches are only the beginning. Florida is the theme park capital of the world, where fantasy comes to life and imaginations can run wild. Disney’s Magic Kingdom, the Epcot Centre, roller coaster rides and film studios are all here, along with excellent zoos, aquariums and safari parks.
Nature lovers will delight in the tranquillity of the Everglades, where one can zip across the still waters on airboats, or paddle kayaks through the mangroves, whilst the jewel-like string of islands that make up the Florida Keys is a tropical paradise.
Visit the Kennedy Space Centre to see rockets being launched, Palm Beach for glitz and glamour, Miami for colour and culture, or Jacksonville for rivers, canals and coast. Florida really does have something for everyone to love.
