Not only is it one of the most popular states to visit in the US, but Florida is by far one of the most popular destinations for worldwide travel and there are plenty of reasons that’s the case.

The sheer amount of theme parks

If you’re looking for some thrills, spills, and world-class entertainment, then Florida is the best place in the world for theme parks. In particular, it’s worth looking at the top theme parks in Orlando, which is effectively the capital city of the theme park industry. From Universal Studios to Volcano Bay to Walt Disney World, this is the city where childhood dreams are practically made.

Sun, sea, and sand

Of course, we can’t deny that a lot of people flock to Florida for the climate that it enjoys. Not only does it get great weather, but it gets the kind of beaches that are best for taking advantage of it. Florida is one of the surf capitals of the US, but places like Daytona Beach, Miami Beach and the other top beaches in Florida are great for just relaxing in, as well.

The absolute best in hospitality

Given how popular Florida is as a travel destination, it should be no surprise that the hospitality industry is thriving there and offering a breadth of high-quality experiences few other locations can offer. There are all kinds of resorts and villas in Florida that offer a perfectly curated accommodation experience for you and your family. Whether you’re looking for a pool, a beach villa, a communal boutique spot, or something else, you will most assuredly find it.


A wealth of natural beauty

Not all that’s great about Florida is man-made, either. The state has an utter glut of gorgeous natural beauty spots and the best example to look at is none other than the Everglades. The tree-lined islands of the Everglades National Park offer a sight hard to find elsewhere in the US, a truly subtropical climate, with ghost orchids, cypress mazes, and even panthers you can spot on a guided tour. This is only one example of the natural wealth of the state, too.

The place to party

The beaches, the villas, and the popularity of Florida all ensure that there’s going to be a party to join in when you get there. The nightlife in places like Orlando and Miami is difficult to beat, making it a destination for bachelor parties as well as more exclusive affairs. The beaches get extra fun at night, with the party beaches of Florida attracting music acts, pop-up bars, and pumping crowds.

The Sunshine State has all of the above and much more to offer. From the high living at Miami to the gorgeous weather to the resorts and theme parks, there’s something for just about everyone in Florida. Do a little research of your own and you can find your perfect trip there too.
