Florida Travel Guide

Florida’s main claim to fame is its sunset-perfect beaches and iconic theme parks - but Florida is so much more than this.

The state’s shining star destination is undoubtedly Orlando. Families and groups of friends flock here every year for its year-round sunshine and lively attractions. It is one of the world’s most popular destinations and we recommend everyone visits at least once in their lifetime.

But we also recommend that everyone should complete their holiday to Florida with a quick break to one of the Sunshine State’s other scenic destinations. Further south – along the Gulf of Mexico – beach-worshippers can treat themselves to lazy days on the beach on the sandy resorts of St Pete’s, Clearwater and Fort Myers.

Driving over to the east coast you’ll find Miami – a destination where beach meets city, and chilled-out relaxing meet spectacular nightlife. Then just down the road you’ll find Fort Lauderdale, Miami’s upmarket sibling that specialises in villa accommodation and sailing adventures.

Hugging the southern coastline however is one of Florida’s most beautiful treasures: the Florida Keys. A string of tropical islands stretching 120 miles south of Florida’s coastline. While all the keys are unique in their own right, Key West always wins the ‘must-visit’ accolade. Here holidaymakers will find Duval Street’s many bars, Mallory Square’s nightly Sunset Celebration and the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum.

Why you should twin-city in Kissimmee and St. Pete/Clearwater

Picking just one stop whilst on holiday in Florida can be a challenge. The Sunshine State is home to multiple cities and beach-side towns that offer their own unique slice of Floridian culture. As multi-centre holidays increase in popularity, we encourage our holidaymakers to pick two (or more) must-see destinations to allow them to get the most out of their sun-drenched holiday.

Two of our top picks are the towns of Kissimmee (which is nicely snuggled in beside Orlando) and St. Pete/Clearwater, overlooking the shimmering Gulf of Mexico. Here are just a few reasons why they make the perfect twin centre Florida holiday.

In and Around Orlando – Unwind after the Parks

Golf: It’s the unofficial Florida pastime. In Orlando alone, there are a whopping 170-plus courses. Some of the most famous public courses include Arnold Palmer’s Bay Hill Club & Lodge, the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club and the Waldorf Astoria Golf Club – all of which are included in Golf Digest’s “Top 75 Public Courses in Florida.”

If golf isn’t your thing, don’t worry – Orlando’s world-class resorts have amenities galore. From award-winning spas to on-site water parks and family-friendly activities, Orlando’s resorts cater to travelers of all ages and interests.
