The Travel Collection: A Guide to Florida
Posted on May 18 2018
The State of Florida: quite possibly the most popular summer vacation destination in the United States - and with good reason! It's got just about everything you can imagine and even some things you can't imagine. (We're looking at you Disney World!)
As one of the most diverse states in the country, every city and every region has something different to offer. In the south, you get the multicultural mosaic of Miami, but in the north there are cities like Pensacola that resembles the slow paced feel of the Deep South. As the saying goes, "the farther north you go in Florida, the more South it gets."
But there is one thing all of Florida has in common - it's a prime vacation destination.
For the Beach Bum...
They don't call it the Sunshine State for nothing! With 1,200 miles of coastline and 700 miles of beachfront, it's almost too hard to choose! From The Keys to Clearwater you get a different vibe wherever you go. If Miami Beach is the place for people-watching and cocktails, then Cocoa Beach is the spot for surfboards and beer.
Either way, you've got your hands in the sand and the ocean at your feet. Definitely a win-win situation.
For the Theme Park Enthusiast...
There's no better place than Orlando! You've got Universal Studios, SeaWorld, and the unending enchantment of "The Happiest Place On Earth." If you've already checked those off the list and are willing to drive a little further, there's always Busch Gardens. It's in Tampa not Orlando, but this African-themed amusement park is a riot!
For the Nature-Loving Adventurer...
Break out your snorkels and slip on your flippers - the Molasses Reef is a scuba diver's dream! This beautifully submerged area is located in the Florida Keys Marine Sanctuary and is home to an assortment of coral and sea life. It's a hidden gem that begs to be discovered, but do so respectfully - we don't want to compromise the ecosystem.
Florida: arguably the best vacation destination on this list. At least, according to our most reason Instagram poll. It's a peninsula filled with sweet citruses, tumbling ocean waves and hot sandy beaches - and we've figured out how to bottle it!
For those days that you're dreaming of fresh fruit and sunny beaches, FLORIDA from our Travel Collection is the next best thing!
