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!

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

Five people in my group and everybody enjoyed the experience.

We had a 3.5 hour boat/walk tour starting in Chokoloskee. The boat took us among the myriad islands on Gulf coast and stopped on one to examine the local shellfish and traces of original indian inhabitants. The captain was knowledgeable in local flora and fauna and even found us a spot to watch dolphins swim around the boat. A few islands had large colonies of white pelicans. The area visited is one of few remaining US areas which is totally wild and only visited by fishermen, kayakers and a few tourists in guide boats. The water is relatively shallow allowing only smaller boats with outboard motors or airboats to navigate. Chokoloskee is literally at the end of the road and has a small population and limited facilities but a clients that loves the remoteness. Its an hours drive from Naples so it is relatively easy to get to. If you want to experience the Gulf islands this is the way to do it.

An excellent tour with a brilliant guide - We loved it!

Tom is an excellent guide and it was a huge pleasure walking with him through Wynwood. We learned a lot and enjoyed the tour! Can only recommend this tour to everyone!

Very nice and greatful experience with an awesome guide: Don !!!

Don did a great job, he is super nice and knows everything about the Everglades. Very nice and very interesting and funny stories he told us !

The tour guide was very informative and help me understand the artists

I really got educated on art skills and styles. I enjoyed the tour guide giving me the point of view of artists. I lt really opened my mind to art. It’s amazing that artists do it for love of art and not for greed and monetary gain. A lot of love and passion for their talent!

Miami: Wynwood Arts District 1.5-Hour Walking Tour Reviewed by Natalie, 05/07/2018

We liked it but could be better if the promised water materialised.

It was a unique experience, especially the breezy airboat ride through the grassy glades which could had been given more time rather than the waiting for the wildlife to appear. We also wasted 45 minutes at the Port of Miami for reasons that have nothing to do with the tour. The staff are all niçe, though. Thank you.
