Top 10 Attractions in Florida

Florida isn't called the sunshine state for nothing. With golden rays all year-round, and being the second-largest state east of the Mississippi, a lifetime isn't enough to see everything in Florida! However, here are some pretty good places to start.

As the largest subtropical national park in the country, the Everglades is a must-visit for all outdoorsy types. Spot animals like crocodiles in protected wilderness!

Lesser known than the Keys, this chain of islands in the north of the state is a little more laid-back. Relax in the company of idyllic beach houses and white sands.

Our insider tips

When should I go?

Florida is one of the southernmost American states, so it will be warm throughout the year. If you are not a fan of hot and humid weather, it is best to avoid the peak summer months.

When do things open?

Generally, most attractions open around 9:00AM, but there will definitely be lines at the most popular ones. It may be worth your while to have an early start when going to Walt Disney World, for example.

What should I wear?

The most important thing is to keep yourself protected from the blazing sun - that means reapplying sunscreen, staying in the shade around midday, and drinking plenty of water to prevent dehydration.

What people are saying about Florida

Excellent trip for a first timer in usa and in particular Miami

Excellent trip for a first timer in usa and in particular Miami, Florida. My family and I did enjoy this trip, we where on the bus quickly and belted in. There where few people on the trip although we did stop by some pickup points, like hotels etc along the way. It did take around an hour to get there and once we arrived where given clear information on the pickup times 3 to be exact, then allowed to go about the mall ourselves as we wanted. This is a big mall and a lot of the stores are high end so bring a lot of spending cash/cards, there is quite a few discount stores here as well so you won't be completely out of pocket. The discount passport book they give you is good but we found few opportunities. While there we did visit a few stores we also visited a food establishment called yard House the food was amazing and a good selection of beers on tap. This mall has a lot to offer I would highly recommend it to anyone who visits Florida and in particular Miami or Orlando

Excellent day but plenty of confusion from staff

The ‘Space Pass’ ticket was not well understood by Staff on arrival. The lunch with astronaut was great but there were no signs leading to the venue. Numerous people concurred that it was pure luck they found the location. The shows were excellent & the bus tour too. Far too many of the interactive stations in the Atlantis Centre were not working. Overall great but plenty of attention to detail missing. For the price you pay I’d expect more

Absolutely amazing trip, with a great captain!

We had an amazing trip, dolphins swimming alongside the boat, beautiful beaches and a couple of great stop offs collecting shells and hearing about the area from the captain, what an absolutely lovely guy, I would highly recommend this trip, if you are looking to see dolphins, birds and amazing views, and are keen to know more about the area, definitely book this trip.

Good way to see some highlights of Miami

Was a quick tour of the city, combined bus and boat. All went relative quick, albeit wait between bus and tour was relatively long - almost 2 hours! Time could be killed at restaurant, and/or shopping center. Liked the quick stop in little Havana, but was more a stop to buy cigars/ souveniers, whereas I felt that rest of bus tour was rushed.

Great to see the highlights in Miami in less than a day!

We had a nice time wandering by the city highlights. It was hot so if you book this in the summer period: bring sunscreen. But the tour guy was really nice and told a lot aboutt what we saw. After the bus tour we had great food. Then we went to the boat tour wich most of it is going by celebrities homes. Nice to see though.
