Florida travel guide

Disney Parks & Activities · Beaches · Theme Parks
The Sunshine State
The “Sunshine State,” Florida became a favorite winter destination for the affluent crowd over a century ago. Today, the state attracts visitors from around the world with its golden beaches and modern theme parks. You can spend your entire vacation enjoying the state's highly developed seaside areas, but remember that some of Florida's best-kept secrets are in secluded locations. Visit the big cities and their comfortable resorts offering top-notch dining and nightlife, but leave some time to see the peninsula's swampy landscape, filled with wild creatures and native plants. Farther away from the tourist-packed urban areas, the untamed wetlands of Florida offer a selection of things to do, such as kayaking, boat rides, and numerous other outdoor activities.

Florida Keys travel guide

4.3
An archipelago of about 1,700 islands extending in a gentle arc south and southwest of Florida's mainland, the Florida Keys divide the Atlantic from the Gulf of Mexico. Many visitors on vacation come to scuba dive in the coral reefs, fossilized and exposed as sea levels declined over thousands of years. In addition to being one of the world's top diving and fishing spots, the Keys feature hundreds of shops, restaurants, bars, and various tourist attractions, most of them crowded all year long with visitors on vacation. To soak up the Keys' atmosphere and discover writer Ernest Hemingway's former haunts, drive from one island to the other all the way to Key West, located just 140 km (90 mi) from Cuba.
