The aptly-named Sunshine State juts out from the southeastern tip of the US into the brilliant blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean on the east coast and the emerald green Gulf of Mexico on the west. It’s one of the world’s most popular destinations for holiday makers of all ages and it’s easy to understand why!
Not only is Florida blessed with a sub-tropical climate that guarantees sunshine almost every day of the year, but it literally has something for everyone. So, if you’re looking for breathtaking natural beauty, amazing theme parks and attractions, excellent shops and restaurants, luxurious hotels at affordable prices or simply a round of golf on a first-class course, this sun-drenched peninsula is the place for you.
And, with year-round sunshine, direct flights from all over Britain and the strongest pound against the dollar in decades, this holiday heaven can be yours any at time of the year!
Florida is famous for its glorious weather, so the sun’s sure to be shining no matter when you visit. Luckily, the Gulf Stream tempers the sub-tropical climate, making for comfortably hot summers and wonderfully mild winters. Pack some cotton clothing, throw in a light jacket for the depths of winter and don’t forget the sunscreen. Or, just bring the suitcase and fill it up with bargains galore when you get here.
