Make the most of your Florida holiday

Catch the best of the Sunshine State. With so much to see and do in Florida, choosing where to start can be tricky. Take a look at our essential guide to immersing in the Floridian lifestyle.

Places to visit in Florida

Orlando – The theme park capital of the world and a veritable outlet shopping haven, Orlando offers adrenaline and entertainment. With a variety of hot hotel locations from Kissimmee to Lake Buena Vista, family villas and deluxe retreats, the City Beautiful has something for everyone.

Tampa & Gulf Coast – Discover charismatic coastal towns, vibrant culture, flawless beaches and the spectacular natural wonders of Tampa and the Gulf Coast. Find city sanctuaries in Sarasota, beachside resorts in St Pete and Clearwater or golfing retreats in Naples.

Miami – From cool beach vibes and big nights out in the city, explore the assortment of Miami scenes. Explore the Art-Deco District, grab beers in Wynwood and check out the street art — all from your beachside hotel.

Fort Lauderdale – The ‘Venice of Florida’, with waterways and glorious golden sands, is dotted with palms and kissed by Atlantic surf. Choose the accommodation for you, whether you require five-star opulence or cheap and cheerful accommodation.

Where are the best places to stay in Florida?

Whether you want a place to stay in the heart of all the action, or a slice of paradise next to the ocean, see our Florida holiday packages to search for super deals. Our abundance of hotels offer a range of options from the grandiose Waldorf Astoria Orlando to Sirata Beach Resort on the coast of St Pete. Both are wonderful hotel choices for families and couples with prime locations next to theme parks and the beach, respectively.

Best places to eat in Florida

The big bites of the US await you in the form of flavourful Florida dishes. Every city oozes with a fusion of cuisine and culture, so try as many foods as you can squeeze in. Miami is home to an array of designer restaurants, fresh ceviche and Cuban cuisine. Further south, in locations like The Keys, the seafood will tantalise your taste buds. Meanwhile, Mexican tacos and margaritas along the Gulf Coast will have you salivating. Want to tuck into everything all-American? You’ll discover pancakes drizzled in syrup, served up with bacon and gigantic waffles topped with berries and cream for breakfast. For dinner, dig into mountains of nachos and burgers stuffed with mac ‘n’ cheese; Orlando promises these plates and more.
