The top things to do in Florida

De Soto, Florida

Walt Disney Resort

There are many must-sees and must-dos on your Florida holidays checklist, and perhaps the best place to start is the home of the world’s most famous mouse, Walt Disney World® Resort, and its four main parks: the iconic Magic Kingdom®, Disney’s Hollywood Studios®, Disney’s Animal Kingdom®, and Epcot®. As well as these unique attractions, Disney World holidays also offer two fantastic water parks: Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon. As there are no beaches in Orlando, these are refreshing escapes from the sometimes-crowded parks and provide a chance to enjoy Florida’s balmy sunshine.

Universal Studios, Orlando

More adventurous teens and adults will maybe prefer the two main parks at Universal Orlando Resort®: Universal Studios® and Universal’s Island’s of Adventure®. Packed with thrilling roller coasters and nods to your favourite Hollywood movies, comic-book characters and superheroes, featuring many world-firsts for technological innovation – a visit to Universal Orlando Resort® has to be at the top of every thrill-seeker’s agenda.

Shopping & golf

Orlando holidays aren’t all rides and chutes, for those who adore shopping, visit one of its premium outlet malls to grab some top-quality branded clothing for an absolute bargain. Golf-lovers will enjoy the many challenging and world-renowned golf courses in Orlando, and the whole family will delight in sampling the food in one of the hundreds of restaurants dotted along International Drive.

The longest coastline in any US state

Holidays to Florida aren’t limited to Orlando, however, Florida is home to many of the best beaches in the United States; with the longest coastline of any other US State. Thanks to its location, being surrounded by turquoise waters and within such close proximity to the Caribbean, there is a distinct Cajun feel to its fare and an obvious love of delicious seafood. The Florida Keys embody this laid-back, beachside feel and offer a relaxing hotspot with unparalleled diving opportunities.

For those in search of a balanced mix of nightlife and daytime relaxation, Miami is an energetic city like no other and a must-see destination. Its stylish bars and hip restaurants complement its beautiful beaches, architecture and oh-so-cool atmosphere.
