Whether it's the beautiful beaches, entertaining theme parks, or the natural attractions, Florida has something on offer for everyone. Here you will enjoy plenty of opportunities to take part in adventurous activities like diving, snorkeling, sailing and swimming.

How to get to Florida
While Florida is serviced by multiple airports, the Miami International Airport (MIA) is undoubtedly the busiest, with scores of tourists making their way down to the party beaches. It's also the largest gateway between the United States and Latin America. To get to downtown Miami, SuperShuttle vans and taxi cabs are available on the arrival level, and will take you straight to your Florida holiday rental.
Meanwhile, Disney World and central Florida are best accessed by the Orlando International Airport. Note that Florida is a hotspot for foreign cruise stops - Port Canaveral, Tampa, and Miami are the most popular with international travellers.
What to eat in Florida
If you love desserts try the Key Lime Pie, which is the official pie of this state. This delicious, tart dessert originated in Florida Keys and is made from the native key lime. It is usually served on a crust made of graham crackers and is topped with whipped cream or meringue.
As Florida is located on the coastline this state is renowned for its mouth watering seafood. When you are here try the Stone Crab, which is reported by many people to be even better than lobster. If you want to enjoy a variety of succulent seafood, the best time to visit Florida is between October and May.
Weather in Florida: a climate like no other
The sun shines on America's most south-eastern state for a good part of the year. January and February are quieter, cooler and have less rain. Things start heating up from March until August, and rain showers are quite common, particularly in June, which heralds the start of the hurricane season. This is also one of the busiest times of the year.
Late September is less humid, and also tends to have fewer tourists around, so it's a great time to book your Florida holiday villa. November to April is the best time for hiking, as it is typically dry. December is chilly but pleasantly sunny and brings an influx of vacationers from colder countries and states up north.
Top attractions: Florida's coastal delights
The coast is lined with golden beaches, with Miami Beach topping the list for its party culture and eternal association with spring break. For a round of skinny-dipping, Haulover Beach Park in North Beach is your best bet. The coast is best enjoyed from the privacy of a Florida holiday villa near the beach, with your own terrace and garden!
Family holidays in Florida
You can't come all the way to Florida with your kids and not visit Disneyland, or the Universal Studios in Orlando. While Disneyland allows your kids to experience the magic of Disney films, Universal Studios is a huge theme park that offers you adventurous rides. One day is never enough to explore everything that these attractions have to offer.
If you're looking for a relaxing beach break with family, then you'll be spoilt for choices in Florida. Take a relaxing stroll along the South Beach, or play with your little ones at Hollywood Beach. Miami Beach is a perfect place to build sand castles or go swimming with your kids. But there's more to Miami Beach than just the sand! Another great place to explore with your kids in Miami Beach is the beautiful and historic Art Deco District.
Nature at its best in Florida
Renting a villa in Florida offers you a unique opportunity to explore the subtropical wilderness. The Everglades National Park was created in 1947 and is home to 1.5 million acres of marshy land. This national park is also home to various animals like American crocodiles, manatees and alligators, as well as Florida panthers.
Another place to visit is the Dry Tortugas National Park which is located approximately 68 miles west of Key West. This park is famous for its beautiful coral reeds, abundant sea life and variety of tropical birds, as well as for the legends of sunken treasures. It is also home to Fort Jefferson, which was built in the 1800s.
