Have you been think about sandy beaches? How about theme parks, cruises, resorts, and a nice tan?
We’ve got just the place for you. Florida comes in our top 5 with nicest states to visit in the U.S. Everything you could want for a vacation, you will find here. Well, maybe not mountains and snow sports. Otherwise, let us show you what Florida has to offer.
We’re going to start with the beautiful sandy beaches. Florida has over 600 miles of them. Because the state is a peninsula, you can find a place to relax overlooking the Atlantic Ocean or the Gulf of Mexico.
On just about all of the beaches you will find some awesome water activities. Snorkeling, scuba diving, jet skiing, parasailing, boating, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, you name it.
So if you can’t seem to absolutely love any of the destinations we’re about to show you; you can’t go wrong with choosing a beach and taking a trip there.
- Walt Disney World
Number 1 may come as no surprise to you. It’s pretty incredible to see all that Disney has to offer. You can go on rides, enjoy the water park, hang out with Disney characters, and watch the castle light up with fireworks at the end of a spectacular day.
Here are 65 things you should see in Disney from alphamom.com.
Visit any of Disney’s theme parks like Epcot, ESPN Wide World of Sports, or Magic Kingdom for a vacation you won’t forget.
2. Universal Studios
We have Universal as number 2 because families seem to enjoy both here and Disney at the same time quite often. Universal isn’t the same as Disney, but they are similar.
Head over to Universal to see themes of Marvel comics, Harry Potter, and other great movies. Universal has theme parks such as Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, Volcano Bay, and City Walk.
Universal offers rides, water rides, dining, and live shows. Honestly, you can’t go wrong with 1 or 2 when choosing. That’s probably why people usually try to get to both.

3. Key West
Remember those beaches we talked about earlier? We didn’t mention crystal clear water, but you’ll find it here. Key West is one of those places you see on TV often, but rarely get to experience.
Every water activity you could think of, you’re liking to find here. If that doesn’t suit you, try sightseeing, the arts, dining, romantic getaways, and taking a night out on the town.

4. Everglades National Park
You knew we had to throw in something with more nature. Seriously, ENP is a spot people don’t think about as much, but should know about when planning a trip.
Become one with nature here. You will be able to see crocodiles, Florida panthers, manatees, sharks, turtles, and many many other species of animals. ENP has guided tours, camping, and sightseeing you can take advantage of. The link next to “4.” has information on visiting this incredible national park.
Last on our list (for today) is a part of Florida you might find yourself wanted to move to. Clearwater is located on the west side of Florida with access to the Gulf of Mexico. Not only does it have access to the water, but cities like Tampa, St. Petersburg, Sarasota, and Bradenton are all close by to visit too.
Clearwater has all the water activities you can imagine, great food, shopping, and a downtown area you will fall in love with. If you feel like visiting the Gulf Coast, Clearwater is a great place to start. Here are some attractions you can check out as well.
