Florida holidays Holiday rentals - villas & apartments to rent in Florida
Florida is one of those places where there is simply too much to see and do. From the action packed theme parks in Orlando to the back waters of the Everglades, there is something for all ages and all tastes. Located in the southeastern corner of America, Florida boasts having coastlines on both the Atlantic Ocean and the warmer waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
If you like beaches, the Sunshine State has some of the best especially if you head south and explore the Florida Keys - a collection of 100 tiny islands connected by 128 miles of road, stretching south into the pristine waters towards the Caribbean. No visit to Florida would be complete without visiting Miami. The cpaital of the state has a modern, trendy side, especially if you hit South Beach with its bars and clubs but it also has an interesting art deco historical centre.

They’re known as a destination for fishing, boating, snorkeling and scuba diving. The southernmost city of Key West is famous for Duval Street’s many bars, Mallory Square’s nightly Sunset Celebration and the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum.

Everglades National Park is a 1.5-million-acre wetlands preserve on the southern tip of the U.S. state of Florida. Often compared to a grassy, slow-moving river, the Everglades is made up of coastal mangroves, sawgrass marshes and pine flatwoods that are home to hundreds of animal species. Among the Everglades' abundant wildlife are the endangered leatherback turtle, Florida panther and West Indian manatee.
