When in Florida...

Welcome to paradise

Florida's Paradise Coast

The Paradise Coast presents luxury resorts and pristine parks on Marco Island and a touch of glamour in the ritzy city of Naples. When you’re ready to explore the rugged outdoors, glide through the swaying sawgrass of the Everglades.

Sunny St. Pete's

St. Pete/Clearwater

Not only is St. Pete/ Clearwater home to 35 miles of award-winning white sand beaches and nature trails, the downtown area supports a host of independent restaurants and boutique shops. Its craft beer trail showcases 40+ local breweries.

Get your fill of thrills

Orlando

Conquer a roller coaster and splash down a slide in the world’s theme park capital. There are plenty of tame rides for little ones, too. You’ll also find a surprisingly large variety of cuisine here and dinner shows.

Tampa Bay treasures

Tampa

You’ll find Florida’s usual suspects in Tampa Bay – sunshine and waterfront sunsets – plus pockets of culture. Join Tampa Bay’s lively annual pirate-themed party and stroll the riverwalk. You can also watch Cuban artisans hand-roll cigars in Ybor.

Mangroves, manatees and more

Crystal River

Just a 90-minute drive from Tampa and Orlando, Crystal River is the place for outdoor adventure. You can paddleboard, canoe and kayak around a glittering network of rivers, lakes, marshlands and mangroves. You may even spot manatees.

A breath of fresh air

Bradenton

Say goodbye to high rises and hit Bradenton for dreamy scenes of unspoiled Florida, like the seven-mile white sandy beach on Anna Maria Island. Meander through lush nature preserves and make yourself at home with self-catering accommodation.

Florida holiday FAQs

Make the most of your Florida holiday

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

What are the best things to do in Florida?

You’ve pencilled in your holiday, and you’re keen to hit all the Florida attractions. We recommend:

Walt Disney World Resort

Don a headband with Mickey Mouse ears and get ready to mingle with a gaggle of loveable movie characters. You can also catch them during a variety of stage shows when you take a break in between rides.

Universal Orlando Resort

Did you know that Universal Studios Florida remains a working film and TV studio? It’s true. The larger resort just happens to have a host of rides and performances, too. Plus, it’s the place for Harry Potter superfans.

Kennedy Space Center

You weren’t planning on extra-terrestrial travels during your Florida holiday near Disney. However, you can explore all things ‘outer space’ at the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral. It’s about an hour from Orlando – and it serves as NASA’s main launch site.

Everglades National Park

Temporarily trade Florida’s theme parks and beaches for a quiet day in the Everglades. The expansive natural area is the prettiest place in Florida, home to wading birds, as well as the mammoth reptiles (crocs and gators) that make it famous.

Florida Keys

You’ll experience laid-back ‘island time’ as you traipse south along The Florida Keys. The journey ends at Key West, but the entire trip is picturesque. It makes for an ideal, lackadaisical tail-end of a holiday in paradise.

Can I book Florida holidays with park tickets?

Yes, you can add theme park tickets to your Florida holidays. The tickets we sell are only available pre-departure, they are not available at any of the park's entrance – so buy before you fly. We sell Disney Magic Tickets with Genie+ too, and Universal Orlando Explorer Tickets. If you stay at a Disney or Universal hotel you'll also enjoy theme park benefits.
