Known as the ‘Sunshine State’, Florida is considered one of the world’s favourite playgrounds and is home to over a thousand miles of beautiful, sandy beaches. Enjoying a semi-tropical climate and world-famous theme parks – including four at Walt Disney World plus Universal Studios® and Universal’s Islands of Adventure® (home to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter™, offering a range of exciting Hogwarts-themed rides, dining opportunities, sweet and toy shops for young (and not so young!) muggles to enjoy.*) – it’s easy to see why it’s so popular with families and thrillseekers alike, but the one and a half million-acre Everglades National Park and the coral-reef-rich Biscayne National Park make it a haven for wildlife enthusiasts too. Visitors to Florida can marvel at the Kennedy Space Center and Cape Canaveral Space Launch facility on the east coast, explore the cultural delights of Saint Augustine, one of the oldest colonies in North America, or indulge in some exclusive shopping at Palm Beach’s Worth Avenue. There are also a whole host of sporting activities to amuse even the most active visitor, including championship golf courses, excellent fishing and world-class tennis facilities. Drink a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice, watch the spectacular sunsets from the west coast beaches and sample the famous Key Lime Pie to get a real flavour of why Florida is so special.
