With its varied and accessible pleasures, Florida is a favourite among many travellers on holiday to the United States. Drawn by St. Augustine’s colonial charm, Palm Beach glitz, the pulsing nightlife of Miami and the Everglades’ quiet expanse, every visitor to Florida is bound to find something to love.
No trip to Florida is complete without a tour of Miami, its vibrantly multicultural metropolis that buzzes both by day and by night. And then there are the beaches, pure white on the Gulf and pounded by surf on the Atlantic coast. From the Panhandle’s powdery white beaches, to the vibrant corals of the Florida Keys, the ocean is forever calling – calling the traveller to sail, dive, swim or partake in other water sporting activities. Take a detour off the beaten path, go deep a couple of miles and you will enjoy a glimpse into the old Florida, including its cigar-makers and mermaids.
