Writing About Travel

In 1513, Juan Ponce de León came to the Sunshine State in search of the mythical fountain of youth, and named it Florida. Sometimes it seems that everyone in America over the age of sixty is searching for the fountain too.

Florida Holiday Regions

The Florida Keys

Key West is the most popular island and therefore the most visited one of the string.

From Miami, it takes a good five hours by car to get there, passing by the bridges which connect them. The keys are the most southern point of North America, bordering almost with Cuba. Not only are they quite famous for the beaches and wildlife parks, but also for the nature reserves and architecture. The night life is also another good reason to go to the 'keys'.


Divided into two parts, Mainland and South Beach, Miami is one of the most visited destinations in the USA.

The busiest part of the city is the Art-Deco district, in South Beach, loaded full with night-clubs and restaurants; the beach opposite this area is also very popular amongst tourists.

In the Key Biscayne area, tourists are offered the chance to visit some celebrities' houses. In Miami, shopping lovers will find a wide variety of shopping malls, such as Bayside, Coco Walk, the Dolphin mall, amongst others. Miami really is the place to be!


Located in Central Florida, Orlando is the busiest region in the state. The reason for this is undoubtedly the theme parks, and in particular, Walt Disney. With more than a dozen of different parks, Orlando is the place to have fun with the family.

The Coasts

With exciting cities to visit, such as Sarasota, Tampa and Clearwater, and the world-wide famous Everglades National Park, the Gulf Coast is a hidden treasure in Florida.

On the other side of the peninsula, the Gold Coast extends itself over sixty miles along the Atlantic Coast. Daytona Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Palm Springs City, Boca Raton and many other cities offer an endless variety of entertainment, culture, nightlife and restaurants. The car ride over the A1A is a must.
