Things For Tourists To Experience In Florida

Jul 17, 2008
Florida is possibly one of the nicest places I've ever visited, and I feel the holiday accommodation here really does play a huge part in this. I often rent a holiday villa, and i'm never disappointed by the standards. Other than the theme parks here are a few other things you may wish to look at.

Some tourists come to Florida to experience the amazing sports facilities. For those people who enjoy water sports, it provides the idea setting and climate. Whether it be a small sailing boat, wind surfer, yacht or motor cruiser, Florida's coast line provides the perfect setting for most water sports.

Golfers come from all over the world due to the year round sunshine. There are numerous cheap golf courses available to the masses all the way through to the world championship golf courses. No matter what your golfing ability or budget, there are courses available to suite all needs.

Florida is one of the flattest states in America and its highest hill, near Lakewood is only 345feet high. The Everglades are only ten feet above sea level.

The state is made up of a wide plateau that is one of the most stable in the world. As a result not much has changed since it was formed many million of years ago.

The Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico are separated by Florida, and to the south is a series of islands that have formed over millions of years. These series of Islands are known as the Florida Keys and have been made up from a sediment of limestone forming over the older rock. Many tourists flock to the Florida Keys to experience the crystal clear water and laid back island culture.

A lot of tourists like to take an air boat ride on the Everglades in search of alligators. The Everglades are a stark reminder of how Florida used to be and it is easy to imagine yourself drifting back in time as you glide over them on your air boat.

Near daily rain fall at some times of the year, keeps much needed water draining south. First into Lake Okeechobee, then down into the Everglades helping form vast mango swamps near the sea and slow moving saw grass further inland.

Hundreds of beautiful lakes make the ideal setting for the lovers of fishing and water sports. There are also never ending white sandy beaches ideal for swimming and scuba diving.

For all you bird lovers, you will also not be disappointed as salt marshes provide the ideal habitat for many species of bird and wildlife.

It is known as the sunshine state because of its all year round good weather. Some tourists find the summer months too hot and humid and find the sudden downpours of rain a blessing as they reduce the humidity.

Hurricanes during the months of July and August, sometimes sneaking into September. Recent hurricanes have caused great destruction and suffering but the state of Florida has learned to cope and adapt to them.

I would say it is the mix of the new with the old that has led to Florida becoming one of the top tourist destinations in the world. During recent years there has been a vast growth in the number of holiday homes and villas available for rental direct from their owners, holiday accommodation has never been easier to find. This has led to tourists having far greater choice of where to stay and at far cheaper prices than that of staying in hotels. Holiday makers like the freedom and independence that these holiday homes provide and come back year after year to enjoy the benefits of taking a vacation in Florida.

All in all I would recommend Florida to anyone. The key to having a really successful holiday is securing the right holiday accommodation, in the right area. Holiday villas are often your best bet in getting quality holiday accommodation but most hotels are also well up to par.
