Top Tourist Destinations in Florida

"Beaches, amusement parks, national parks, and a variety of unique tourist attractions make Florida one of America's most visited states; families flock to Orlando to thrill their children with theme park visits, while sunseekers flock to coastal cities like Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and a string of cities along the southern Gulf Coast."

In the summer, travelers from all around Florida and the surrounding states flock to the Florida Panhandle's refreshing breezes and magnificent white sand beaches to escape the heat.

If you want a taste of island life, the Florida Keys, where life moves at a slower pace and places like Key West appear a world apart from the mainland, are the place to go.
