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.

The Keys are ideal for a vacation, whether you're looking for action-packed or relaxed. Key West, the biggest island, also holds the Ernest Hemingway museum!

Tampa Theater

This isn't just any old theater - it's on the US National Register of Historic Places. Built in 1926, it's a lovely place to visit today - and not just to catch a movie!

Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Are you still waiting on your Hogwarts acceptance letter? In the meantime you can still go shopping on Diagon Alley, ride through Gringotts, and watch the Tri-Wizard Tournament.

Everglades

Everglades

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!

Sea Islands

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

Amazing experience. Fantastic Manatee encounter! Great Guides!

Our local, experienced captain and guide took us out on the fantastic waters of Kings Bay in the Crystal River. There, we had an amazing experience swimming with manatees! We even saw a mother nursing her calf! My first impression - whoa! I didn't realize that they were sooooo big! Bring your underwater camera to get some fantastic pictures! Guides were awesome! Friendly and knowlegeable!

Excellent-Exciting-Everyone had a great Experience!

All the day was awesome - maybe could use more food/refreshment locations so lines not so long!

Our guide was friendly, engaging, and shared a breadth of information.

We were impressed with our guide's knowledge of wildlife, geology, hydrology, history of European / American / Native American interactions and the early and late development of the Everglades area. She had a sympathetic understanding of the imagination and ignorance of Florida's developers from colonial times onward to the present, the challenges they faced and those they left to the present generation. I only wish I had a map of the routes we followed that I might retell our story better.

Enjoying the scenic beauty of the road, it’s an exciting trip for us.

From Miami: Day Trip to Key West by Shuttle Bus Reviewed by Sai Bo Bo, 05/15/2019

Sit on the top deck of the bus for the best view and adventure

This is a good tour to see a few highlights around Miami and Miami Beach. Sit on the top deck to have the best views and make sure you pay attention to the very low tree branches or you'll get wacked if you don't duck in time. Also, hold on to your hats and sunglasses or you might lose them with the strong winds. The tour guide gives you ample warnings in between his explanation of the sights so just pay attention and all is good. This actually made the tour more fun. The bay tour was very interesting. Got to see the very large yacts of Mark Cuban and Alicia Keys, as well as their homes and the homes of Gloria Estefan, Ricky Martin, Tiger Woods, J Lo, and many more celebrities. We parked around the corner from the bus meeting spot for $10 and then walked down Lincoln Street to see the shops and restaurants. I recommend this tour
