8 Florida Summer Getaway IdeasIf you have chosen Florida for your summer getaway, you have made the right choice. The state is packed with beaches, attractions and events that will make your stay memorable. Whether you’re traveling alone, with your spouse, or with the whole family, it’s the perfect vacation destination. Here are some Florida getaway ideas:
1. Florida Keys
They Keys are a 120 mile long chain of islands at Florida’s peninsula, connected by a series of bridges. Here, you’re never far from a beach! If you aren’t into amusement parks, it’s a perfect setting to settle into a vacation home rental and relax for a few days. You’ll enjoy Key West, the most southern city in the USA with its Cuban influences
2. Universal Orlando Resort
The Universal Resort is home to two impress theme parks: Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. Both parks are heavily influenced by Universal’s epic collection of movies. The attractions and events at these two parks are geared toward adults, but children still have a great time. You’ll find tons of nightclubs, restaurants, and shopping. Don’t forget to “ride the movies!” 3. Kennedy Space Center Since 1968, Kennedy Space Center has launched every human space flight from the United States. Currently, it still sends up unmanned rockets. At the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, you’ll find museums, movies, a rocket garden, and bus tours of shuttle operations and launch facilities. You can also pick up some one-of-a-kind memorabilia.
4. Walt Disney World
The dominant attraction of Orlando, Florida, Walt Disney’s theme park empire is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the country. It’s a kid-friendly land that your whole family will enjoy. Explore the fantasy Magic Kingdom futuristic Epcot Center. Get up close to the animals in Animal Kingdom and experience your favorite movies in MGM Studios.
5. Fort Lauderdale Beach
Due to its expansive canal system, For Lauderdale is known as the “Venice of America.” It’s famous for its beaches and boats. Tourism from frequent spring breakers has turned the area into a thriving and stylish city. The largest, most central beach, Fort Lauderdale Beach, is separated from the stores and shops by a fun, wavy promenade and boardwalk.
Many people think the Everglades is a giant swap. Actually, it’s a large, slow-moving river of grass from Lake Okeechobee to Florida Bay. It’s a unique eco-system that supports some animals you only find in a few places of the world, like alligators, bottlenose dolphins, manatees and bald eagles. The area is known for endless outdoor opportunities. Outdoor enthusiasts will love the hiking, bicycling, boating (canoeing, rafting and kayaking), fishing, and plenty of camping.
7. Discovery Cove
If you have kids with you, you’ll love Discovery Cove. It’s geared toward education, but also packs on the fun. It’s mostly a water-adventure park where you can swim with dolphins, relax on the lazy river, hang out in pools and coves, and take the underwater walking tour called SeaVenture.
8. SeaWorld Orlando
As part of your Orlando experience, spend a day at SeaWorld. Your family will have the chance to encounter some fascinating animals from all over the world. You’ll see Orca whales, seals, dolphins, and sea otters. When you enter, be sure to pick up a schedule of the day’s shows so you don’t miss some of the incredible tricks and exhibits.
