Where to in Florida?
Previously inhabited by Native American tribes, the tropical peninsula jutting from America’s southeast coast was one of the first territories to be settled on by European voyagers during the 16th century. The sun-soaked state now attracts more than 110 million visitors every year, with Orlando’s dreamy Walt Disney World Resort, Universal Studios and SeaWorld Orlando its major hits.
The Apalachicola National Forest, tucked up in the extreme north, offers a tranquil escape from the throngs in Florida’s hotspots. Its 900 square miles of pine trees, rivers and glassy lakes are ultimate hiking, swimming and canoeing territory. Breeze down to the other end of Florida to discover the crocodile-patrolled Big Cypress National Preserve and the swampy Everglades in the south.
Relaxing by the sea more your thing? The ribbon of chalk-white sands along Florida’s picturesque east coast, from Daytona Beach to the undeveloped expanse of Canaveral National Seashore, are idyllic spots for a refreshing dip in the Atlantic. While you’re in the area, call on the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex to discover NASA-crafted rockets and hi-tech feats of engineering.
Beneath the glitter and glamour of Miami—Florida’s second largest city after Jacksonville—you’ll unearth a diverse cultural tapestry. Little Havana is a colourful hub of Cuban coffee houses and jazz bars with a heavy Latin American flavour, while the South Beach area is where you’ll find the city’s bright and beautiful, with chic designer boutiques and pastel-hued Art Deco architecture.
You’re never far from a prime shopping precinct in Downtown Miami. For a more boutique experience, explore the vintage Cuban charms in Tampa’s Ybor City, while Fort Lauderdale’s elegant Las Olas Boulevard is lined with independent galleries, shops and restaurants. Take a gondola through the area’s maze of manatee-frequented canals for a relaxing, scenic tour of this prestigious part of town.
For the ultimate driving experience, strike out along the epic Seven Mile Bridge—among the longest in the world—through the Florida Keys. A spritz of remote islets off the state’s southern coast, the best way to reach them is with a hire car from Avis in Florida.
