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.

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

Good but it takes longer than they list.

The tour was a nice but they showed in print that it was a duration of 4 hrs when in fact from the 11:30 start time at their tour office until we got back to the dock at 4:30 was 5 hours and then we had to walk back to the bus drop off point to get the bus back to the tour office starting point. The first bus that pulled up could not fit everyone so they told us we had to wait for the next bus. We needed to go back to our hotel and then go immediately to the airport so we ended up taking a Lyft back to save time and it was hot waiting for the bus in the sun. The bus tour was a short tour around Miami with a half hour stop in Little Havana. It would be better if they gave us ear phones and allowed you to pick your preferred language to listen to rather than a guy speaking over a microphone in English and then Spanish. Sometimes the sound was not very clear. After the bus they bring you to a restaurant next to the boat pier hoping you’ll eat there, we had from 1-3 before the boat left.

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

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.

The guide was enthusiastic and knowledgable about the incredible art.

My guide Lance was awesome! He took me out even though no one elde made it. We saw a ton of great art and he knew the history of the area, the art, and the artists. I will take this tour again on my next trip out.
