Combining golden coastlines, big time theme parks and mild to warm temperatures all year round, Florida’s winning formula makes it one of the USA’s most popular places to holiday. It’s popularity comes down to its universal appeal; a place where you can bring the family to the biggest playground in the world in the form of Orlando complete with Walt Disney World, Universal Studios Florida, SeaWorld Orlando and more. Beyond the squeaky clean Mickey Mouse Ears of Orlando though, the south eastern state has its own unique personality. Revel in the glamour of Miami’s South Beach before driving one of the USA’s best road trips; the overseas highway to the Keys. Enjoy ocean views as you tee off in Fort Lauderdale or fly across the waterways of the Everglades National Park on an airboat.

Where to Go in Florida
Florida has two main entry points: Orlando and Miami. Orlando is beloved as a family and theme park destination. It’s from there that you can head north to the famous Daytona Beach and then onto Jacksonville for a swim or a spot of golf. Alternatively, head south of Orlando and the city of Tampa is just a 1.5 hour’s drive away. Or you can continue on to Fort Lauderdale and Miami, the state’s famous beach-side and multicultural city. At the very southern point of Florida is the lush Everglades National Park and the Florida Keys, which covers Key Largo and Key West.

When to Go to Florida
With its subtropical climate, Florida has only two seasons: the rainy season, lasting from May to October, when over 70% of the state’s rain falls, and the dry season between November and April. While the dry season is the best time to holiday in Florida weather-wise, there are good deals to be had in the rainy season, which features plenty of dry days too. For more advice, see our when to go to Florida guide.
