5 Best Vacation Spots in Florida

vacation home rentals orlando floridaFlorida has everything you could need in a vacation: Beaches, amusements parks, museums, stores, sunny skies, and beautiful resorts and villas. What makes Florida particularly wonderful is its appeal to families.

There’s always something for everyone to do, no matter the age. It’s your opportunity to enjoy the Caribbean without leaving the country. It’s too big a place to see all at once, but you have to start somewhere. Consider renting a Florida vacation home or condo to spice up your stay!

Here are the five best vacation spots in Florida.

1. Orlando

When most people think of Florida, they think of Orlando. No matter your age, everyone can enjoy Walt Disney World – a sprawling, enchanting place. Here you can enjoy four giant theme parks (Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Epcot Center, and MGM Studios), several waterparks, and endless hotels, restaurants, and shopping. Tour their golf courses, auto track, sports complex, and dozens of other attractions. Nearby, you have Universal Studios and their island parks and theme-based rides. “Ride the movies” and stay in luxury resorts. Seaworld is one of the world’s largest indoor/outdoor aquariums. Legoland is a kids’ favorite, too. If you have kids, Orlando should be your first Florida vacation stop. Your little ones can meet all their favorite movie character, dine in castles, see shows and parades, and ride whimsical rides. Don’t miss all the opportunities for wonderful memories.

2. Miami

Miami, a cultural hotspot, is home to one of the country’s most intense nightlife scenes. The Latin-inspired music seems to never stop and there’s a bar/cafe at every corner. The beachfront is perfect for relaxation or ocean sports. Ocean Drive is one of the go-to spots in Miami where you can walk down the street passing street-side cafes/restaurants, iconic hotels, clubs, stores for shopping, and more while on the opposite side of you there is beautiful South Beach. The beaches are white and soft, and the ocean is crystal blue – perfect for snorkeling or diving.

Another amazing place that is a bit more quiet than Ocean Drive is Lincoln Road.  Here you will find a variety of restaurants with outside dining and unique stores to shop at. Miami is also known for having some of the finest golf resorts in the world. If you’re looking to spend your vacation partying, shopping or even relaxing, you’ll love Miami.

3. Florida Keys

If you want beaches, you want the Florida Keys. 30 of the coastal islands are strung together by the Overseas Highway, turning a collection of sugar-white sand bars into a tourist haven amidst clear blue, Caribbean water. The Keys are an excellent destination for water sports such as boating, jet skiing, and scuba diving. Sport fisherman (deep-sea, spearfishing, and diving) particularly enjoy this part of the world. The water is perfect for snorkeling, exploring, and investigating the exotic marine life. The fish are especially colorful!

4. Panama City Beach

Vacationers of any type will get something out of Panama City. The main section offers an eclectic display of old and new. Video arcades and honkey-tonk motels meet cosmopolitan nightclubs and condo high-rise - a perfect area to rent a vacation home or condo. Like many places in Florida, you’ll find beautiful, sandy beaches. On either side of the city you have state parks where you’ll find walking trails, fishing, and pristine silence (if that’s your thing). Boating is a big part of the economy. You can cheaply charter a boat for tours, fishing, or swimming with dolphins.

5. The Tampa Bay Area

Tampa’s appeal is mostly it’s seclusion from other areas of Florida. Tampa Bay is a lazy town that offers more historical city life. Here you’ll find a rich nightlife of an older crowd, outdoor activities, and attractions that are great for the family. Busch Gardens is a popular theme park, but don’t miss the Lowry Park Zoo or the Aquarium. Take a tour of Ybor City where the Cuban cigar industry began. And of course, like anywhere else in Florida, you’ll always find soft, white beaches.
