Top 3 Reasons to Visit Florida

Beautiful Beaches 

Florida is famous for its amazing beaches, and with miles of crystal clear waters, soft sand, and picturesque views as far as the eye can see, it’s no wonder.

Each beach has its own distinct vibe, whether you’re after the hustle and bustle of South Beach or Venice Beach, or a more quiet and secluded place for escape, such as Lido Key or Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park. 

Even if you’d prefer to avoid the water, many of The Sunshine State’s beaches offer great biking and hiking trails, and boardwalks with fantastic dining and shopping selections.

What better way to enjoy this vacation paradise than by lounging by the sun and sea? No matter what you’re looking for, you have countless options to choose from to enjoy an amazing view, great weather, and relaxing vibes.

Theme Parks Galore

Florida is widely considered one of the premier destinations for family vacations in the country, and with 10 major theme parks and hundreds of smaller, kid-friendly attractions scattered throughout the state, it’s no wonder that families flock to cities like Orlando in droves every year.
