Florida Holidays

Home to year-round sunshine, pristine beaches, world-class theme parks, Cuban culture and emerald wetlands, Florida truly offers something for everyone. Stretching from the sun-kissed keys in the Caribbean Sea to the large forests that skirt the Deep South, Florida’s landscapes and cities are diverse and exciting. Experience vibrant Miami, a melting pot of Latin culture, with its stunning beaches, Cuban-inspired food and art-deco architecture or visit the many attractions and theme parks of family-friendly Orlando. Uncover the wildlife of the iconic Everglades by kayak or airboat, relax on peaceful Sanibel Island which is home to some of the region's best beaches and a wildlife refuge or explore the pristine Crystal River which is famous for its large population of manatees. For those looking to recharge, head to Key West, Florida’s most eclectic and fun island. Soak up the Caribbean atmosphere, fill up on Creole cuisine and sip rum cocktails as the sun sets over the glistening ocean.

When to visit Florida

Best Times
Good Times

Boasting year-round sun, it is no wonder that Florida is known as the ‘Sunshine State’. Located in the southeast of the US, Florida has a subtropical climate so rain and hurricanes can be expected during certain times of the year. With this in mind, the best time to visit Florida is typically between February and May where temperatures are warm and comfortable, and rainfall is at its lowest – the perfect conditions for sightseeing and visiting theme parks. The summer months of June, July and August see hot temperatures of up to 34⁰C, high humidity and heavy rainfall. This coupled with the sheer number of visitors results in the summer being a more unappealing time to visit Florida. Hurricane season peaks between mid-August to mid-October so travel to Florida during these months should be avoided.

What to do in Florida

With so much to see and do, here are our handpicked highlights of the best places to visit in Florida. Renowned for its world-class resorts, families and thrill seekers should head to Orlando to explore its iconic theme parks including Walt Disney World Resort, Universal Studios and Epcot. City wise – Miami is one of the USA’s most eclectic and colourful cities which is brimming with Cuban culture, art-deco architecture and beautiful beaches. Florida is also a great destination for wildlife and nature lovers. Spot alligators and birdlife in the beautiful Everglades by kayak or airboat or travel to Crystal River which is renowned for its large population of manatees. For those interested in ecology, Sanibel Island is home to the JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge which supports over 240 bird species as well as amphibians and reptiles. If you are looking for a more relaxing holiday to Florida, why not incorporate the Keys; an archipelago of tropical islands dotted off the southern tip of the state. Snorkel in crystal waters, soak up the laid-back Caribbean atmosphere and enjoy a rum cocktail during sunset.
