Fun things to do in Florida!


       West Florida Coast - Central
        Tampa, Clearwater, St. Pete, Sarasota and MacDill Area Family Fun

        What's not to love about this part of Florida? The weather is near perfect year-round, the beaches are clean and plentiful, fishing and kayaking is as exciting or as relaxing as you wish, the food boasts a spicy Cuban influence, and the tropical, small-town vibe ... (more)
       Central Florida
       Orlando, Gainesville, Ocala Area

        Home to the University of Florida, Gainesville beckons with college-town quirkiness, a bustling downtown art and dining district, museums and parks, sporting events and festivals. Ocala, known as the horse capital of the world, is much more than an equine haven: Silver Springs Nature Theme Park, Wild Waters water park, the 607 square mile Ocala National Forest, and literally hundreds of lakes offer camping, bicycling, swimming and boating family fun.
       No trip to Florida is complete without a visit to Walt Disney World and Epcot in Kissimmee, near Orlando. This park, along with...(more)

       East Florida Coast - Southern
       Miami, Port St. Lucie, Fort Lauderdale area Activities

        A relaxing couple of hours can be spent meandering the 20 acre Port St. Lucie Botanical Gardens (take a picnic lunch), then plan on finding your sunny in Fort Lauderdale, where you can visit the cruise docks, get lost in outlet malls, watch an air show by the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds or dine in style on an Intracoastal dinner cruise.
       Do the conga in Miami, a bustling city rich with culture from its Cuban and Latin history. Visit the world famous South Beach, take a detour and visit Everglades National Park air-boat ride through mangroves or better yet ...(more)
       Florida Keys
       Key Largo to Key West

       Ahhhh - the Florida Keys, what better a location to get away from it all: no giant theme parks, football stadiums and multi-lane freeways here. Just miles of small islands dotting the crystal-clear warm waters, pelicans resting on bridges, more seafood joints than you could visit in a year, and friendly welcoming residents that make you feel right at home. Go diving in Key Largo, sunbathe at Sombrero Beach on Marathon, drive over the scenic 7 Mile Bridge to Big Pine Key where you can snorkel over the Looe Key coral reef, then cruise down to Hemingway's ...(more)
       East Florida Coast - Northern
       Jacksonville, Daytona, Merritt Island

       Ecological Preserves, a never-ending stretch of Intracoastal Waterway and breathtaking beaches, a vibrant downtown district and the picturesque St. Johns River all await you in Jacksonville: aka 'Jax'. A bit further down the coast don't miss St. Augustine, the nation's oldest city, Fort Castillo de San Marcos and do not miss ...(more)
