If you’re planning a trip to Florida, you’ll enjoy a jam-packed vacation full of fun and adventure. Florida is often underrated as a vacation destination, but if you’ve got kids and you’re looking for a family friendly experience, Florida is the place to go.
These are some of the best things to do once you’re down in Florida:
Take a road trip
Florida is huge, and there are so many things to do in the state that you may want to hire a car. This will mean you can easily travel between the best destinations while enjoying the freedom to pick and choose and go wherever you like.
Revisit your childhood
Whether you’re bringing the kids and it’s a family trip, or you’re simply hoping to pretend to be a kid again, consider a family day out at Universal Studios. You can find tickets online so you don’t need to wait for hours in line, and if you download the app you’ll be able to see which rides have the biggest lines so you can plan your time well.
Once you’re finished with Universal Studios (don’t miss Harry Potter World), head to Disney World, and Sea World, or check out the many different animals at Animal Kingdom.
Relax in Miami
Miami is a fun place for the whole family, and both Miami and Fort Lauderdale are places where you can easily grab a cruise and spend a few days exploring at sea. Another option is to hire a babysitter and go out for a night. Miami is full of some of the best clubs and restaurants, and you’ll also find live music at plenty of smaller bars.
Explore the Everglades
The Everglades are a great family-friendly trip, and you’ll be able to enjoy the alligators in the area. Your guide will tell you all about the area as you travel through the everglades on a special boat, and kids of all ages will love spotting the alligators as they swim through the water or lay out in the sun.
Enjoy the food
Florida is famous for its food, and you’ll find everything from Michelin-starred restaurants to huge burgers and greasy fries. There are also plenty of excellent Latin American restaurants throughout the state, along with Mexican, Italian, Asian, Indian, and more.
Watch the sunset
No trip to Florida is complete without a visit to Key West. This is the most southern tip of the Continental United States. Enjoy water sports like parasailing and swimming, relax on the beach, or buy some of the local handicrafts. Watch the kids jumping off the cliff, before sitting somewhere with an ice cream and enjoying one of the best sunsets around.
