Known as Florida's Historic Coast, a visit to this northeastern coastal city will add so much to your trip along the Atlantic coastline. Being one of the oldest European-established settlements within the borders of the United States, St. Augustine offers a rich history and a lot of classic charm that is not easily forgotten. With loads of affordable activities and many sights to enjoy, it is a must-see for the vehicle-bound holiday-maker.
Orlando is host to about a dozen theme parks, the most important of which is the Walt Disney World Resort. It is impossible to consider a family road trip through Florida without stopping off at Disney World for the day. Take the family to see the home of Mickey Mouse and to experience some of the world's best rides. While in Orlando, consider visiting the Kennedy Space Center and meet one of their astronauts.
If you are on a road trip across Florida, you would regret not including Miami as a destination. Having never recorded snowfall, Miami undoubtedly has the most moderate weather imaginable. Conditions suit both the old and the young, with loads of activities to enjoy and sights to explore for both age groups. From sandy beaches to lively night clubs or even ski trips, Miami has it all. You can go bar hopping on the strip, learn to sail and snorkel or sit down to the best Key lime pies on offer.
And while you find yourself in Miami, you might as well take a 4-hour drive down to Key West, the southernmost city in the United States, and take in the mesmerizing sunset before hitting the road again. It is more than just a memorable experience, it is what the great American road trip is all about.
