Florida stands annually as one of the most popular tourism destinations in the USA. Could it be the endless sunshine and the coastal beaches? Dozens of world-class cities juxtaposed by hundreds of laid-back, relaxing beach destinations? The award-winning golf courses up and down the state or the theme parks in the center that draw families of all ages? Florida truly has something for everyone.
Florida is also home to millions of vacation rentals. Whether you’re looking for a four bedroom condo outside of Disney, or a state of the art beach rental in Miami, TripAdvisor has it. The benefits of booking a vacation rental are numerous - they typically cost less than a traditional hotel, the availability is often better, and you get the space, privacy, and amenities of home.
For Florida, where many travelers are coming with a family or group of friends, beach rentals make a lot of sense since you need more space but you also want to socialize with your group. You can come and go as you please and with some of the amazing amenities offered (like an infinity pool, patio with grill, hot tub, or home theater, among many others) it is clear that a Florida vacation rental beats a hotel every time.
A few of the major Florida tourist spots are:
Panama City Beach
A beach lover's paradise, Panama City Beach is home to some of the most beautiful white sand beaches along the Gulf of Mexico. Play golf at Camp Creek, swim with the dolphins at Gulf World Marine Park, or grab some sun on the titular beach.
Spend your days soaking in the sultry weather, dine in the evenings on award-winning seafood, and dance your nights away at the hottest clubs. This city offers world-class entertainment, trendy shopping, hot beaches, celebrity-owned restaurants, and sizzling nightlife that never sleeps. It's known the world over for incredible nightlife that doesn't stop until dawn, so if you're planning to sleep all day and live it up at night, South Beach is the place to be.
Orlando is home to a number of great attractions, including Walt Disney World, SeaWorld, Discovery Cove, and Universal Studios. You’ll never be able to do it all in one week, so focus in on what you like best: thrills, waves, or movies and go from there.
The islands of Key West, Key Largo, Islamorada, Marathon Key and Big Pine Key offers the perfect mix of family beach fun and peaceful vacation relaxation. Spend your days strolling one of the many boardwalks, or swim, snorkel, and kayak in the pristine Gulf.
