The Sunshine State
The “Sunshine State,” Florida became a favorite winter destination for the affluent crowd over a century ago. Today, the state attracts visitors from around the world with its golden beaches and modern theme parks. You can spend your entire vacation enjoying the state's highly developed seaside areas, but remember that some of Florida's best-kept secrets are in secluded locations. Visit the big cities and their comfortable resorts offering top-notch dining and nightlife, but leave some time to see the peninsula's swampy landscape, filled with wild creatures and native plants. Farther away from the tourist-packed urban areas, the untamed wetlands of Florida offer a selection of things to do, such as kayaking, boat rides, and numerous other outdoor activities.

World's Luckiest Fishing Village
With emerald water and white beaches, Destin is one of America's favorite vacation destinations. The city originated as a small fishing village, but today tourists from all over the world flock here to enjoy itineraries filled with dolphin cruises, snorkeling, and superb sailing. The city boasts a lively nightlife scene, and when the sun sets, beachfront bars and seafood restaurants are abuzz with activity. The sand of Destin's idyllic beaches is considered to be some of the whitest in the world; made up of finely ground quartz crystal, it resembles sugar.
