A sunshine state that’s nestled in the south-eastern tip of the USA, Florida is one of the most popular US holiday hotspots. It’s understandable, what with the miles of beaches, fun attractions and amazing year-round weather. From the thrills of Orlando and the beaches of Fort Myers and Naples, to the laidback vibes of Kissimmee and Miami’s fab cityscape, Florida is a US adventure playground.

Great Places to Visit

There’s a holiday in Florida for everyone. From vibrant city life to beach breaks, from thrills and spills to croc-filled swamps, it has it all!

Take on the Coasters in Orlando

It’ll be a scream a minute at Orlando’s famous theme parks; whether it’s a scream of delight or a scream of terror depends on what ride you’re in line for! Choose from Disney and Universal Parks, Busch Gardens, SeaWorld and more. From white-knuckle coasters to gentle rides ideal for tots, a trip to Orlando is a dream come true.

Kick Back in Fort Myers

Florida isn’t just about the thrill-seeking opportunities. Head to the Gulf Coast and you can explore in and around Fort Myers. Spot manatees at Lee County Manatee Park, or head to nearby Sanibel Island for another chance to get back to nature. Plus, there’s the gorgeous white sand Fort Myers beach to chill out on.

Have Fun in Cosmopolitan Miami

As the jewel in the south of the state, Miami is a city lover’s dream, with the added bonus of brilliant beaches too. Museums, galleries, watersports and architecture all come together here to fill your itinerary. Combining the best of atmosphere, nightlife, shopping and sights, expect holidays in Miami to be lively and exciting.

Go Retro in Kissimmee’s Old Town

If you want to stay close enough to Orlando to enjoy the theme parks, but with added peace and quiet, Kissimmee is the place. It’s a small town that’s full of old-fashioned charm, especially the Old Town Mall with its diners and traditional fairground. Golf is also a big deal here, ideal if you want to practise your swing!

Getting Around

Make use of the shuttle services that operate via the airport and your hotel. Taxis are ideal for short journeys, but can be pricey. Buses are cheaper and easily found, and there are some train routes if needed. Car hire is available and recommended if you’re hoping to explore more than one city or resort. There are also ferries and water taxis in some areas, such as Fort Myers and Key West.

By Bus

Greyhound buses operate to and from Florida for interstate journeys. There are also local buses, shuttles and trolleys in the various cities, running regularly, which can get you to where you need to be cheaply and conveniently.

By Car

Hiring a car is a great way to get around the sunshine state, and provides the most freedom and convenience. You can hire cars from airports or resorts, but most will likely be automatic. Driving is on the right hand side.

Passports and Visas

The Visa Waiver Programme means you won’t need a visa unless staying for more than 90 days. You should provide details via the online ESTA system, 72 hours before travel. Your passport should be valid according to US requirements, so do check carefully. For more information and advice, visit www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/usa/entry-requirements or the Foreign Office at www.fco.gov.uk/en/

Health and Safety

Make sure that you have taken out the recommended insurance before you holiday in the USA, because medical treatment is expensive. For more info, see www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/usa/health
