Why you should choose Florida for your next trip to the USA

Updated: Nov 22, 2018

The USA has so many amazing things to offer to travellers, and it is very difficult to choose the best tourist destination. But the state of Florida definitely ranks amongst the top few, and here are just a few short reasons why.

Natural beauty

Florida has the nickname of ‘The Sunshine State’, and it has the most tropical climate of all 50. With thousands of miles of white sand beaches, the vast wetlands of the Everglades, and the gorgeous Florida Keys islands jutting out into the Caribbean, Florida is truly rich in stunning natural beauty. If you are a traveller that wants to chase the sun, you won’t be disappointed.

The Everglades are one of the many jewels in Florida’s crown. A large expanse of swamps and wetlands that cover several hundred square miles in central Florida, this area is home to one of the state’s most well-known and impressive animals – the alligator. A guided air-boat trip through these wild, primeval waters to look for ‘gators is surely an experience you won’t quickly forget, that’s for sure.

All this plus spectacular hotels to relax in after a full day in the parks

Experience the vibrant culture of Miami

If you are the kind of holidaymaker that wants to experience the local culture, Florida has a lot to offer as well. Miami, in particular, is a vibrant and colourful mix of Cuban and American culture, which you can experience through the regular festivals and cultural events that happen throughout the year. Naturally, you can also grab a taste of Cuba from one of the many street food vendors or restaurants in Little Havana.
