With over 1200 miles of coastline and year-round beautiful weather as well as all the attractions a family could ever want.
Is it any wonder that Florida is one of the most popular destinations for families looking for a holiday that will enthrall and delight everyone?
Here’s more on why Florida is the ultimate vacation for you and your family.
Attractions for All the Family
Perhaps most famous around the globe is Walt Disney World in Florida where all the family can go to take in the iconic attractions, magical encounters with their favorite Disney characters and special seasonal events. Disney’s Animal Kingdom takes visitors on a magical journey to some of the most remote parts of the planet while Disney’s Hollywood Studios will immerse sightseers in the starry glamour of the movies and give families a chance to take an unforgettable trip in the Millennium Falcon.
Also, worth a visit for families is Sea World, not only famous for its aquatic life, but also a mecca for roller coaster enthusiasts. Families can expect to get up close and personal with dolphins, manta rays, and sharks.
As if all that isn’t enough, families should also consider heading to Universal Florida where the movies are brought to life for your entertainment. Major attractions include Men in Black, Shrek, The Fast and the Furious and Despicable Me, but perhaps the most alluring of all is a trip down Diagon Alley with themed shopping and dining as well as exciting rides and, of course, a chance to take the Hogwarts Express.
Children who are interested in space travel will delight in the Kennedy Space Center where attractions and experiences will take visitors through the different eras of space travel.
There is a limitless choice of accommodation for families visiting Florida, including hotels, Airbnb, resorts and perhaps most enticing of all, luxury family villas including Solterra Resort where themed villas include arcades, home theaters and private pools ensuring that your little people will be happy and entertained for your entire stay, giving you plenty of time to relax and enjoy the perfect weather.
Places to Visit
Close to Walt Disney World Resort is Kissimmee, an area known for its family adventures where you can kayak through the headwaters of the everglades, experience the thrill of a tree top trek, glide through the blue skies on a hot air balloon ride or indeed enjoy some retail therapy at one of its many outlet shopping centers.
Up in the north of Florida is Panhandle, a spit of land rooted to the left shoulder of the Florida Peninsula. The scenic windy beaches are certainly worth a visit for any sun lover and Wakulla Springs State Park will afford you close encounters with wildlife such as alligators, turtles, and birds while you take in the wonders of the ancient natural spring where the remains of at least ten ice-age mammals have been discovered.
For a spot of historic culture, then be sure to visit St Augustine, believed to be the oldest city in the U.S. with fine examples of Spanish colonial architecture as well as stunning sandy beaches and wildlife sanctuaries.
