By Jungle Erv June 8, 2017

Finally, you get the long-awaited vacation days and decide to spend it at the most beautiful place in the Southern United States: Florida. But Florida is enormous and there are so many things to see. Before you know it, your time off work may be over.

Spend time in Florida’s hottest vacation spots and schedule one-of-a-kind activities for a summer to remember. Here are some things you should consider doing.

Join Everglades Airboat Tours

The Everglades is famous for its subtropical climate, alligators, and mangrove forest. To experience all three at once, go for an airboat tour. Cruise through the mangrove tunnels and spot an alligator from the safety of an airboat. Have only a few hours to explore the Everglades? Worry not! Airboat tours are available more than once daily, and you can have fun for 30 minutes, 45 minutes, 1 hour, or 2 hours—it’s your choice.

Theme Park Hopping

If you love getting on thrilling rides, Florida will be like heaven on earth. No matter if you’re a child or an adult, theme parks cater for everyone. The most famous parks in Florida include Universal Studios Orlando, Disney World, and Legoland.

If you’re looking for a more wet and wild experience, head to Adventure Island where they provide both water-themed thrill rides and waterpark for children. Their Dolphin Plunge is a must try! This is where you plunge into enclosed clear tube slides which will send you speeding underwater to catch views of dolphins swimming past.

Traveler’s Tip! Visit The Wizarding World of Harry Potter when you’re in Universal Studios Orlando. The only other locations are in Hollywood, Los Angeles and Osaka, Japan.

Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex

Who hasn’t dreamed of becoming an astronaut? You can relive your childhood dream by visiting the place where NASA launches their rockets into space. The Space Center is comprised of several buildings full of exhibits and displays you can touch, feel, learn, and explore freely. They also have an immersive attraction that tells the stories of NASA’s very first astronauts.

Traveler’s Tip! If you’re a fan of outer space, plan to spend an entire day here. They operate from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Miami Beach

What’s the point of visiting a tropical state if you’re not going to spend at least a day on the beach? Bring your sun lotion and relax on one of the most impressive beaches in the world. Heat? Check. Surfing? Check. Entertainment? Check! Miami Beach is surrounded by many fine hotels and restaurants where you can lay back and enjoy the freshest seafood by the sea.

Traveler’s Tip! Make time to visit spas around Miami Beach for extra relaxation. You deserve it.

Florida Key West

If you have extra bucks to spend, this is the place you would want to see. Key West is a part of Florida’s archipelago. Travelers can fly-in or take a bus. It takes 1 hour from Miami or 1 hour and 45 minutes from Fort Lauderdale to reach Key Largo. Once there, you can do any kind water sports you can think of: snorkeling, scuba diving, sailing, etc. The water is clear, the weather sunny, and the beaches are covered in white sand—what more can you ask for?

Traveler’s Tip! Have a love for museums? Visit Ernest Hemingway’s Home and Museum, an old Spanish colonial mansion built in 1851.

Florida is the place to go and have the perfect tropical holiday. From exotic animals like alligators seen from the Everglades airboat tours to rollercoaster rides and awesome waves, your vacation will be one you will never forget.
