If you’re heading out to Florida, alone or with family, for business or pleasure, you will want to make sure that you know about the big attractions that are worth visiting in Florida. Some of these are obvious to all: the beaches, the amusement parks, the various sporting events – these are all attractions that you’ll get to see without necessarily having an itinerary beforehand. However if you’re looking for something more unconventional, off the beaten path or if you’re looking for something that is more educational instead of the usual get-drunk-visit-the-casino routine, here are a couple of ideas to help you plan the ideal Florida vacation. As always, take a look at http://aguidetoflorida.com/ for more in-depth guides on places to visit and sights to see in this beautiful state.
For those who love the outdoors
If you enjoy the outdoors and are an active person, you will be thrilled to hear that Florida offers a myriad of activities for you to partake in. If you love to fish and relax in the sun, you will love the Florida Keys and the Panhandle. If you arrive at the right time of the year, you might even catch the tournament. If you always wanted to go diving, Palm Beach offers you the opportunity to do dive in a coral reef and take in the amazing beauty of all sorts of exotic wildlife that inhabit it. If plain ole surfing, swimming or just suntanning is your thing, you will have no shortage of beaches to do it all. Even if you’re not an outdoors person, we believe that once you visit Florida – you will become one.
Sport fanatics welcome
In Florida, you will find sporting events for every sport imaginable. How about a game of college football? The University of Florida hosts on its grounds some of the most intense football games you will ever get the chance to attend. If you come from Atlanta and are a supporter of the ACYO (http://acya.org/), you will find that the Gators are just as good, if not better, than them!
Perhaps you’re a fan of baseball more? In Spring, baseball training takes place all over the state. You will see many famous baseball teams train at Vero Beach or at Port St. Lucie. If you’re a real die-hard fan, check out your favorite team’s website and see where their next training is going to be – you won’t want to miss the opportunity to see your favorite team training for success… right before your eyes!
Theme parks and assorted Aquariums
Of course, no visit of Florida would be complete without visiting at least one of the famed theme parks and aquariums. Whether you’re with your family or not, you will have plenty of fun here. You won’t want to miss Sea World and Disney has an exclusive tour where they show what really goes behind the scenes at the most popular attraction in the world.
If you prefer less touristy options, we recommend the Kissimmee and the Old Town Park. You’ll get to see a lot of retro things here, like a classic car exhibition, an enchanted Ferris wheel and a full-blown track for lovers of go-kart. If you’re outside Orlando, we recommend you see the Gulfarium on Fort Walton Beach.
As you can see, there is no shortage of options to see, do and partake in Florida. This article has touched only the tip of the iceberg. We recommend you go and explore the place on your own. Surely such an experience will be a thousand more valuable than what some commercial guide will tell you. Have fun!
