WHY VISIT FLORIDA

Sizzling beaches or a theme park bonanza might tempt you to Florida, but there’s more to the Sunshine State than golden sands and Disney shows.

That said, Miami is a fabulous place to kick off your sojourn. The city’s sprawling South Beach delivers what the postcards promise: brightly colored lifeguard huts, promenades of art deco architecture, and a steady stream of tanned bodies. It’s a place to pedal a powder-blue cruiser, sip refreshing mojitos, or shimmy in sultry clubs.

Miami’s not all about the beach, though. Head to a Cuban block party on Calle Ocho in Little Havana, take a dip in the Venetian pool at Coral Gables, or peruse the wares in the Design District.

The Florida Keys archipelago, south of Miami, is a Caribbean-flavoured getaway with beautiful beaches and clear blue waters. For something wilder, head to the sprawling wetlands of the Everglades National Park, home to alligators, manatees, and the endangered Florida panther.

Orlando is theme park central. You can whizz through Disney’s Space Mountain or see a real rocket at the Kennedy Space Center located on Merritt Island, less than an hour from the city. Nearby Daytona Beach offers sandy resorts, seaside amusements, and a packed calendar of motor racing events.

Along the Gulf Coast in western Florida, the cities of Sarasota, Fort Myers, and Naples serve up culture and tranquillity alongside stellar sunsets, while Tampa and St Petersburg boast sweeping beaches and picturesque historical sites.

Tucked in among the rolling hills of North Florida, the state capital, Tallahassee, is a popular university town strictly Southern in tone, and a gateway to the stunning beaches located in the Panhandle.

On average, Florida tends to maintain warm temperatures throughout the entire year with slightly lower temperatures during the winter months.

In January, the coldest month, the average temperature is 61°F (16°C). In July, the hottest month, the average temperature is 82°F (28°C).

The climate in Florida is heavily influenced by the fact that the state is a peninsula, surrounded completely by the sea. Since the sea is able to store heat, the coastal areas tend to maintain s slightly warmer temperature in the winter than the central areas of the state. This also explains why the average temperature of the surrounding sea in Florida is the highest in the month of July (84°F or 29°C), making it one of the best times of the year for swimming.
