Fun-Filled Florida Vacation Attractions

Jan 29, 2008
Florida, the Sunshine State, is home to much more than just beaches. The entire state is a wondrous place filled with numerous attractions for vacationers.

Sure, you might know about Universal Studios and Walt Disney World, but here are a handful of vacation attractions you may not know of. We're going on a wild Florida vacation ride that will include everything from romance to history.

Let's just see what we can dig up in Florida.

Let's Ride

If you like to hike or ride a bike, the Grayton Beach State Park offers a four-mile off road trail. There's even a 10-mile bike path along Hwy.30.

Bikers who like a leisure pace and eye-popping scenery will enjoy all this great park has to offer.

Romance

For the romantic couples out there, I have a perfect place for you. Sanibel and Captiva Islands are as romantic as it can get. Take a walk on the white sandy beaches. You and your loved one with walk hand in hand experiencing pure tranquility.

History

If you are looking for stuff to do with the kids, take them to Jacksonville Museum of science and History. It'll be fun for the whole family, and educational at the same time.

Silver Springs - Ocala, Florida

Silver Springs is a beautiful 350-acre "nature's theme park." Here you can see the underground springs from the famous glass-bottom boat. The Silver Springs surrounds the headwaters of the Silver River, the world's largest artesian spring.

The Wild

For my money, the Ten Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuge, which spans over 35,000 acres, is also another must-see attraction. Enthusiastic nature lovers pack your backpacks and your tents and let's go camping.

Florida Beaches

Fort De Soto Park North Beach is a great Florida beach.

It's located near St. Petersburg, Florida, the Fort De Soto Park's North Beach was ranked as the #1 beach in the nation in 2005 by Dr. Stephen P. Leatherman also known as Dr. Beach, an environmental studies professor at the Florida International University in Miami.

Next stop, Clearwater and St. Pete beaches.

If you like playing volleyball with friends, the St Pete and Clearwater Beaches is the place for you to show off your moves.

Sunset Key Guest Cottages

Sometimes where you stay is an attraction all by itself. And Westin's Sunset Key Guest Cottages is one of those places.

The Westin's Sunset Key Guest Cottages is one of the top 500 places in the world to stay.

The 27-acre private island is located just 500 yards from the "Old Town" Key West. The island has 37 guest cottages.

So Much More in Florida

Florida has countless opportunities to enjoy. As you can see from this short list, we have beaches, romance, history, water fun, nature and so much more. Florida really is one of those special places to visit.

I hope this sampling of vacation attractions sparked an interest and gave you more ideas. From the beaches to canoeing to culture to fishing, Florida definitely has it all.
