Why There’s More to Florida Than Meets the Eye

Florida Holidays Image


America is a land full of opportunity – especially when it comes to going on holiday! Despite the U.S.
being packed from coast to coast with rewarding destinations, though, there is no doubt that the
‘Sunshine State’ of Florida is always one of the first places that come to mind when we consider
taking a trip across the pond.

However, it would also be fair to say that there is much more to the state than most people – even
those of us who have been there before – usually give it credit for. Florida villa holidays allow you to
go far beyond the famous (and admittedly amazing) theme parks of Orlando, and you can read
about some of our top recommendations for different things to do during your next visit below.

Daytona Beach


The area surrounding the east central Florida city of Daytona Beach is known as the ‘Fun Coast’, and
anyone who has spent a few days there will be able to tell you why! With plenty to entertain families
and groups of friends alike, everything about this destination is ideal for all those who simply want
to have a great time whilst they’re away.

It will come as no surprise to learn that one of the things Daytona Beach is most famous for is its
glorious stretches of sand. In total, the city boasts more than 20 miles of beautiful beaches to
discover and, whether you want to join in the fun and excitement or just chill out and sunbathe,
you’re sure to find somewhere that’s perfect!

3 Must-visits


Daytona International Speedway – Daytona Beach is the birthplace of the thrilling NASCAR race series, and its headquarters are still based there today. The Daytona International Speedway motorsports complex provides a fantastic visitor experience, even if it’s not a race day; taking a tour will let you get up close and personal with this legendary track, the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America and the cars that have raced on it.


Daytona Lagoon – If classic family fun is what you’re after, look no further than Daytona Lagoon. Offering much more than your standard water park, some of this attraction’s all-weather highlights include laser tag, rock wall, go-karts, arcade and an amazing ropes course called ‘Sky Maze’.


Museum of Arts and Sciences – Fancy something a little more cultural? This Smithsonian affiliated museum’s many exhibits feature, among other things, one of the world’s largest collections of Coca-Cola memorabilia and the skeleton of a giant ground sloth!


Fort Myers


In contrast to the wild fun of Daytona Beach, the city of Fort Myers would be a great choice if you
like your holidays to include a mix of fascinating history, areas of unique natural beauty and
educational yet entertaining attractions to suit all ages.

Seemingly a world away from the bright lights of Disney World, Fort Myers is something of a hidden
gem in the heart of Florida – be sure to spend some time here and you’ll realise why it has been the
winter getaway of choice for several of America’s most famous historical faces.


3 Must-visits


Edison and Ford Winter Estates – Thomas Edison and Henry Ford are two of the most important figures in U.S. history, and both enjoyed ‘wintering’ in the idyllic setting of Fort Myers. Both of their houses have been immaculately preserved and are open to the public all year round, providing an incredible insight into the lives and times of these pioneers of American industry.


Six Mile Cypress Slough Preserve – For something completely different (and totally memorable), explore the 3,400 acres of wetland that make up the Six Mile Cypress Slough Preserve. Get ready to see a beautiful ecosystem in all its glory – and maybe even the odd alligator!


• IMAG History & Science Center – The kids will love their trip to the IMAG History & Science Center, and they’ll learn a lot whilst there too. A truly ‘hands-on’ nature attraction, IMAG lets visitors feed stingrays, go back in time 150 years with the help of VR, discover dinosaurs and hurricanes in 3D, and more!

Walt Disney World Resort in Florida


Of course, no guide to visiting Florida could be complete without paying tribute to the most famous
resort of them all – the Walt Disney World Resort near Orlando.

You don’t need us to tell you how popular Walt Disney World Resort is (its 50 million-plus annual
guests are proof enough of that), but we can guarantee that there has never been a better time to
visit, with its fantastic attractions and diverse range of entertainment providing unlimited fun for the
whole family.

3 Must-visits


Epcot – Explore the world in a day with a trip to Epcot. The park’s two themed areas, Future World and World Showcase, are entertaining and educational in equal measure, taking visitors on a journey into the future and around 11 different countries.


Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park – First-time visitors may be surprised to learn that Walt Disney World in Florida is also a haven for wildlife, but the resort’s Animal Kingdom theme park is truly one of the planet’s leading nature-focused attractions. Made up of seven extensive themed areas, Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park is home to species large and small from across the globe, ranging from rhinos and lions to flamingos and giraffes.


Disney Springs – You may not have known about Disney Springs, but it is certainly worth visiting if you plan on staying at the resort. Packed with high-quality restaurants, ingeniously themed architecture and family-friendly activities like balloon rides and shopping, this unique part of Walt Disney World in Florida is arguably one of its best.
