Florida is famous for its mild climate, and, due to it's name as 'The Sunshine State', it's a very popular place for Americans to visit in the winter months, with an extensive infrastructure to deal with the vast number of tourists that visit the state every year. Any time of year is good to visit and the climate ranges from subtropical to semitropical. Floria's coastline is justly famous for its stunning beaches with South Beach, West Palm Beach & Daytona Beach being just a few. These beach destinations come with an incredibly vibrant nightclub scene: if you are a partygoer you won't be disppointed with Florida. On the other side of the coin, Florida has one of the most famous national parks in the country - Everglades National Park - which is 600,000 hectares of wetlands you can explore by air boat.

The north of the state is very similar to the southern states above it, but as you head south it becomes quite different until you reach Miami where nearly 80% of the population speak Spanish as a first language. In the south you will find hispanic culture has influenced the food, the architecture and the spirit.


Miami is a melting pot of cultures, a city of great architecture and a warm and friendly destination surrounded by great natural beauty, and is perhaps best known for Miami Beach and the South Beach area. One thing about Miami is guaranteed - you will never be bored! There are loads of things to do, from the high-action adrenaline of airboat rides, speedway racing events and alligator farm tours, to the more relaxing pastimes of strolling through the many museums and art galleries, visiting the theatre, people-watching in cafes, dancing the night away in bars and clubs or sunbaking on the beautiful beaches.

Southern Florida

Southern Florida is known for its tropical climate, friendly people and natural beauty. Expansive white beaches and access to reefs and islands means you will never be bored. Cultural diversity is the ‘spice of life’ and is reflected in the varied cuisines, architecture, languages and music of the cities. An island in the Florida Keys, the famous Key West has a plethora of activities to suit anyone, from boating, fishing and diving, to dolphin spotting, laying poolside, or exploring the Old Town with its Victorian architecture. This southernmost city is famous for pristine aqua waters, abundant coral reefs and spectacular sunsets. The colourful island vibe lends to a relaxed atmosphere, but there are also plenty of restaurants, serving up fresh local seafood, and bars to while away the evenings. 
Fort Lauderdale was the original Spring Break location, but in recent years has enjoyed a more sophisticated reputation.
