Florida is America’s tropics with warm weather, sandy beaches, and theme parks galore. Roughly speaking, Florida can be divided into three regions: North, Central, and South. Between road trips and cheap flights, Florida is one of America’s best vacation values.
- North Florida – an incredible driving destination where you’ll find sugar sand beaches up and down the Panhandle.
- Central Florida – home to the state’s best theme parks and two distinct coasts, the Gulf Coast and the Atlantic Coast. North of Clearwater, the Gulf Coast is known for its rivers, particularly Crystal River (manatees) and Rainbow River (scuba diving). South of Clearwater, you’ll find resorts on white-sand beaches. The Atlantic Coast is a touch cooler with surfing and extensive lagoons.
- South Florida – Home to sunshine, swamps, and summer showers. The water clears up south of West Palm Beach, making it perfect for scuba diving or just splashing around. Vacations range from urban adventures in the coastal cities to romantic getaways in the Keys.
