Florida is the perfect destination for those with children – and those without — there’s no end of things to do. Whether it’s just the two of you or you’re traveling with kids, you will never forget a holiday in the Sunshine State.
Despite its standing as one of the best family holiday destinations in the world, it’s equally ideal for visitors of any and every age: glamorous Miami is great for party animals and there are good reasons why Florida is the favored retirement spot for Americans.
Florida is home to two of the world’s best-known theme-parks: Universal Studios and Disneyworld. Visits to these places will live forever in your children’s memories – reliving their favorite moments of cinematic wonder at the former attraction and exploring the all-new Wizarding World of Harry Potter and meeting their favorite Disney characters under dazzling fireworks at Disneyworld.
If what you’re looking for is a party, then look no further than Miami, where you’ll find a fantastic selection of dazzling bars and clubs on South Beach. Live it up here well into the night under the sparkling chandeliers and amid the Art Deco architecture. These venues attract everyone from hipsters to chic city folk and are a good excuse to get togged up in all your finery.
Shop and celebrity spot in one fell swoop. Miami is a great spot for bumping into A-listers while they seek out the latest fashion trends. The Design District and South Beach are great places to shed the contents of your wallet while looking out for your favorite faces from the worlds of film and music.
If you want to use your holiday time to get active and get fit, then why not get buff on the beach? Paddleball or Frisbee sets are available at any shop on South Beach for a little light workout. If you’re looking for something a little more challenging, throw yourself into some genuine beach volleyball or make up the numbers in a game of beach football. If you want a real workout, then try South Beach Bootcamp for some regimented cardio.
But it’s not all go, go, go in Florida. The sandy beaches run for miles the length of the peninsula for those wanting some good old-fashioned rest and recuperation, plus the billionaires’ enclave of Palm Beach and the region’s world-famous golf courses. There’s so many to choose from that the state has a top 100 – and that’s not even close to all of them. It won’t be hard to find a course, but picking the best might take some research.
Where to stay
If you want to stay in luxury, then visit Florida with Club Med. Their Sandpiper Bay Resort by the St Lucie River offers great quality accommodation just two hour’s drive from Miami and Orlando. The resort is also close to a whole load of other attractions that ensure you’ll get the most out of your stay.
The resort also offers golfing on its own 18-hole course, along with another 15 courses in the surrounding area; there’s a waterpark close by, too. You can even take a boat ride down the St Lucie River or explore Miami by limo or Harley Davidson at no extra cost.
