Places to visit around Florida

Getting around Florida when you’re on holiday with family or friends is challenging but when you travel as a group, your ideal choice of transport is renting a convertible and comfortable luxury van.

Florida has a lot of beautiful beach views that I could create a top 100 list and still leave out some amazing beaches. It has some of the most beautiful places that you should visit.


Tampa Bay Area

When most people think about Florida, they think of sunshine, theme parks and alligators. But Tampa Bay area on the Gulf of Mexico, includes a massive natural harbor and many beautiful cities, including Tampa and St. Petersburg. The 2003 NFL champions, Tampa Bay Buccaneers come from Tampa.

There are many activities include theme parks and Florida’s best roller coaster rides and a zoo dedicated to animals from Africa. As for beaches, St. Pete Beach is one of the greatest. It was named the best beach in the United States and fifth in the world by TripAdvisor readers in 2012 because of its white sand beaches and clear water.

The beach has beautiful, white sand and the water in particular is a clean blue-green that is exceptional to northwest Florida seashores. Located on the barrier island, you get twice the amount of beach as other areas.

Panama City Beach

Panama City Beach on the Florida panhandle offers 27 miles (43 km) of white sand beaches on the Emerald Coast. The beach is a well known spot for residents of the southern part of the country as well as most of high school and college students on spring break.

Fort Lauderdale

It is no longer the famous spring break attraction of popular imagination, Fort Lauderdale is today a highly sophisticated cultural center with an increasingly upmarket social scene. Located on the Atlantic Ocean about 23 miles (37 km) north of Miami Beach it is also known as the “Venice of America” due to its expansive canal system. The city has an amazing tourist infrastructure with many hotels, golf courses, marinas and museums.
