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.

Central Florida attracts visitors with its subtropical climate, sandy beaches, theme parks, golf courses, and world-famous stock-car races. This part of the state is also home to numerous natural springs, many of which run through protected state parks and provide ideal natural locations for picnicking and spotting indigenous manatees and alligators. Central Florida boasts two coastlines, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that seafood is extremely popular in these parts. Tasting the local cuisine of fresh clams, lobster, mahi mahi, grouper, and yellowfin tuna is definitely one of the things to do. In addition to being a vacation hub, the central parts of Florida also house some of the country's top medical research and high-tech manufacturing facilities.
