Why Your Next Holiday Should Be in Florida…
by Kevin Beck
There are countless reasons why Florida should be the destination of choice for your next holiday: magnificent weather, fabulously friendly people, perhaps the world’s best collection of theme parks and attractions, to name a few. But aside from its obvious pleasure-seeking appeal to both families and couples alike, holidays to Florida are also surprisingly affordable.
Despite its 10-hour flight time from the UK there are many bargains to be had and those looking for cheap Florida holidays will be pleasantly surprised at what’s on offer, with daily flights flying directly and indirectly from many regional airports including London, Manchester and Glasgow.
Holidays to Orlando are without doubt the most popular in the Sunshine State, the city offers a surreal experience that caters for all types of holidaymaker and includes, most notably, the fantastical Walt Disney World® and Universal Orlando® Resorts, as well as the famous International Drive, which plays host to an array of American-style eateries and of course those fabulous outlet malls. Orlando holidays satisfy everyone’s needs - from golfers to coaster-lovers, toddlers to pensioners – there’s something here for everyone.
There is plenty to choose from in the way of accommodation too, including spacious Florida villas
and homes – ideal for families and large groups – dotted throughout Orlando’s vast suburbs in leafy, tree-lined cul-de-sacs, which are most often gated communities with communal swimming pools, playgrounds for children and a central clubhouse for socialising with your temporary neighbours. Luxurious town homes and condos are a great option for groups of friends and smaller families, and hotels are perfect for those wishing for a great location, perhaps within the Walt Disney World® Resort grounds themselves.
Of course Florida holidays
aren’t limited to Orlando; you could spend months exploring its natural beauty, the powder-sand shorelines of the Gulf and Gold Coasts, as well as the intricate waterways and swamplands of Florida’s State and National Parks. Plus, there are the trendy neon-lit streets of Miami, the alluring coral reefs of the Keys and the salacious seafood options in one of hundreds of beautiful beachside towns, to sample.
Whatever your holiday agenda, Florida will excite, delight and entice you to come back and do it all over again!
