Then, move on to all the magic happening outside of the major parks: Step aboard a pirate ship, watch a rocket launch, or zip across swamps on airboats. Hike, paddle or cruise along thousands of kilometers of trails and waterways, and spot alligators, manatees and 500 species of birds in the lakes, springs and woods. Visit the one-and-only Everglades or the paradisiacal Florida Keys. Sophisticated cities beckon to you as well. Discover world-class museums and performing arts venues, as well as vibrant streets pulsing with global flavors, festive hangouts and friendly people.

Florida is a place where you can tailor your holiday to whatever your soul seeks. Start your day snorkeling among colorful fish and end it by savoring a five-star meal. Come for theme parks and beaches, and leave with memories of salsa dancing and space exploration. There are endless opportunities to make your trip unforgettable, so choose a starting point and build your Florida dream holiday.
