- Amelia Island, north of Jacksonville, is the only location
in the U.S. to have been ruled under eight different national flags.
Raton - Boca Raton comes from the Spanish "Boca de
Ratones" meaning rat's mouth, a term used by seamen to describe
a hidden rock a ship's cable might rub against .BOCA RATON twenty
miles north of Fort Lauderdale, is noteworthy mostly for its abundance
of Mediterranean Revival architecture , a style prevalent here since
the 1920s and kept alive in the downtown area by strict building codes.
Beach - St. Pete/Clearwater
claims to have 361 days of sunshine annually.
River - Crystal River is the only place in North America
where it is legal to have a supervised swim with gentle manatees.
Beach - The Kennedy
Space Center's Vehicle Assembly Building is the largest building in
the world in terms of internal volume. Its ceiling is so high (at
525 feet/160 meters) that rain clouds can form inside the structure.
Beach - The consummate
Florida beach town, with its T-shirt shops, amusement arcades and
wall-to-wall motels, DAYTONA BEACH owes its existence to twenty miles
of light brown sand where the only pressure is to strip off and enjoy
Beach - Get ready to experience the natural beauty of Florida's
Emerald Coast, where the sand is as fine as sugar and the Gulf waters
are aquarium clear and emerald green. These unspoiled surroundings
foster life-long memories of family vacations and unforgettable getaways.
Keys - Ten Pulitzer
Prizes have been awarded to writers who lived on Key West, including
Lauderdale - Most
visitors, nonetheless, still come for the beach . Cross the arching
intracoastal waterway bridge, about two miles along Las Olas Boulevard
from downtown, and the mood changes appreciably. Where Las Olas ends,
beach-side Fort Lauderdale begins - T-shirt, sunscreen and beachwear
stores are suddenly everywhere. Along the seafront, Fort Lauderdale
Beach Boulevard once bore the brunt of Spring Break partying, but
only a few beachfront bars suggest the carousing of the past, and
the attractive new promenade draws an altogether healthier crowd of
joggers, in-line skaters and cyclists.
Myers - Thomas
Edison and Henry Ford had neighboring winter homes in Fort Myers.
Still being discovered by the holidaying multitudes, the Fort Myers
beaches on Estero Island , fifteen miles south of downtown, are appreciably
different in character from the west coast's more commercialized beach
strips, with a cheerful seaside mood. Accommodation is plentiful on
and around Estero Boulevard - reached by San Carlos Boulevard, which
runs the seven-mile length of the island. Most activity revolves around
the short fishing pier and the Lynne Hall Memorial Park , at the island's
Walton Beach -
With a reported 343 average days of sunshine per year, Fort Walton
Beach is a sun lovers paradise. Combine beautiful weather with
magnificent beaches, great attractions, dolphins playing in the surf,
a host of activities, as well as great food and entertainment, and
you have the ideal formula for a perfect vacation.
- Gainesville retains a lot of the old southern charm of Florida yet
the hustle and bustle of the University of Florida and the "Gators"
adds a distinctive youthfulness and vigor to the area. Visit the nearby
"Cross Creek" and in the warmer months Ichetucknee Springs.
- The Saint Johns River in northeast Florida is one of the few rivers
in the world that flows north instead of south. Situated in the great
double loop of the St Johns River and with long established lumber
and coffee industries, JACKSONVILLE , the largest city in the US -
841 square miles - is suspicious of anything that might upset its
hard-working tradition. Pleasure seekers are expected to stick to
the beaches. Even the film industry, which came here seeking a base
in the 1910s, was scared off by the religious zeal of the locals and
settled in California instead. The growing size of the white-collar
sector has eased the visual blight of years of heavy industry, and
efforts have been made to enhance Jacksonville's appeal by creating
parks and riverside boardwalks. However, the sheer size of the city
dilutes its character and makes it impossible to walk around and get
a real feel for the city.
Largo - There are
more than 800 Florida Keys, stretching more than 180 miles! Key Largo
is the longest key at 30 miles long and a half-mile wide.
- The coral reef found in Key West is the third largest in the
world, and the largest in North America. Florida's southern tip at
Key West is about 1,700 miles (2.740 kilometers) from the Equator,
closer than any other point in the continental U.S.
- There is no shortage of things to do in and around Kissimmee. While
the Disney World Resort is a must see, Sea World, Wet n Wild,
and Universal are within an easy drive. There are also a host of other
attractions, fine food, museums, theatre, and virtually anything you
can imagine within a 30 minute drive.
Key - Islamorada,
in the Florida Keys, was named for the Spanish word meaning "purple
- The art deco district in Miami is home to the largest concentration
of art deco architecture in the world. Far and away the most exciting
city in Florida, MIAMI is a stunning and often intoxicatingly beautiful
place. Awash with sunlight-intensified natural colors, there are moments
- when the neon-flashed South Beach skyline glows in the warm night
and the palm trees sway in the breeze - when a better-looking city
is hard to imagine. Even so, people, not climate or landscape, are
what make Miami unique. Half of the two million population is Hispanic,
the vast majority Cubans. Spanish is the predominant language almost
everywhere - in many places it's the only language you'll hear, and
you'll be expected to speak at least a few words - and news from Havana,
Caracas or Managua frequently gets more attention than the latest
word from Washington, DC.
Beach - Miami Beach
pharmacist Benjamin Green invented the first suntan cream in 1944.
Miami Beach is a finger of land separating Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic
Ocean, connected by five causeways to the mainland. At its southern
tip is South Beach, known as the Art Deco District, or SoBe. This
10-block stretch of Ocean Drive, which fronts South Beach, is one
of the most celebrated ocean fronts in America.
- Naples claims to be the "Golf Capitol of the World" with
more holes per capita than any other community. In addition, with
more than 160 golf courses, Palm Beach County has more golf courses
than any other county in the U.S.
- The World's Largest Hard Rock Café, featuring a vast multilevel
Café, is located in Orlando, Fla., at Universal Orlando Resort
in the CityWalk entertainment complex. This Hard Rock boasts more
pieces of rock 'n' roll memorabilia than any other location, including
Beatles bricks from The Cavern Club and the doors from Abbey Road
Studios. - Walt Disney World is the pacesetter among theme parks:
it goes way beyond Disneyland, which opened in Anaheim, California,
in 1955 - delivering escapism at its most technologically advanced
and psychologically brilliant across an area twice the size of Manhattan.
Beach - A small
island town of palatial homes and gardens, and streets so clean you
could eat your dinner off them, PALM BEACH has been synonymous for
nearly a century with the kind of lifestyle only limitless loot can
buy. The nation's nobs began wintering here in the 1890s, after Henry
Flagler brought his East Coast railroad south from St Augustine and
built two luxury hotels on this then-secluded, palm-filled island.
Since then, tycoons, sports aces, aristocrats, rock stars and CIA
directors have flocked here, eager to become part of the Palm Beach
elite and enjoy its aloofness from mainland, and mainstream, life
City Beach - Follow
Hwy-98 fifty miles west from Apalachicola and you'll hit the orgy
of motels, go-kart tracks, mini-golf courses and amusement parks that
is PANAMA CITY BEACH . This beach is entirely without pretension,
but it capitalizes blatantly on the appeal of its 27-mile stretch
of white sand. The whole place is as commercial as can be, but with
the shops, bars and restaurants all trying to undercut one another,
there are some great bargains to be found. That said, throughout the
lively summer (the so-called 100 Magic Days), accommodation costs
are high and bookings essential. In winter, prices drop and visitors
are fewer; most are Canadians and - increasingly - Europeans, many
of whom have no problems sunbathing and swimming in the cool temperatures.
- Pensacola's nickname is the "City of Five Flags" because
throughout its history they have been under the rule of the Spanish,
French, English, Americans and Confederates.
Beach - Pensacola
Beach in particular has everything you'd want from a Gulf Coast beach:
mile after mile of fine white sands, water sports rental outlets,
a busy fishing pier and a sprinkling of motels, beachside bars and
Island - Sanibel
Island is one of the 10 best beaches in the world for shelling, with
more than 400 species.
- Rising on a gentle hillside beside the blue waters of Sarasota Bay,
SARASOTA is one of Florida's better-off and better-looking towns,
and also one of the state's leading cultural centers. It's home to
numerous writers and artists, and the base of several respected performing
arts companies. The community is far less stuffy than its wealth might
suggest, and downtown Sarasota is fairly lively, with cafés,
bars and eateries complementing the excellent grouping of bookstores
for which the place has been known. Most visitors stop by to see the
Ringling estate on the town's northern edge - home of the art-loving
millionaire from whom modern Sarasota takes its cue - and the barrier
island beaches, a couple of miles away across the bay.
Augustine - The oldest continuously occupied community
in North America is St. Augustine, settled by Spanish explorers in
1565. Few places in Florida are as immediately engaging as this old
city, with the size and even some of the looks of a small Mediterranean
town. The oldest permanent settlement in the US, with much from its
early days still intact along its narrow streets, it also offers two
alluring lengths of beach just across the bay.
Petersburg - The
world's first commercial airline flight occurred in Florida in 1914
between Tampa and St. Petersburg.
- Framing the Gulf side of the peninsula, a 35-mile chain of barrier
islands forms the St Petersburg Beaches , one of Florida's busiest
coastal strips. When the resorts of Miami Beach lost some of their
allure during the 1970s, the St Petersburg beaches grew in popularity
with Americans and have since evolved into an established destination
for package-holidaying Europeans.
- The world's deepest freshwater spring is Wakulla Springs near Tallahassee.
State capital it may be, but TALLAHASSEE is a provincial city of oak
trees and soft hills that won't take more than two days to explore
in full. Around its small grid of central streets - where you'll find
plenty of reminders of Florida's formative years - briefcase-clutching
bureaucrats mingle with some of Florida State University's 250,000
students, who brighten the mood considerably and keep the city awake
- The longest fishing pier in the world is a portion of the original
Sunshine Skyway Bridge that extends one-and-a-half miles into Tampa
Bay. the business hub of the west coast, has been one of the major
beneficiaries of the flood of people and money into Florida - and
boasts an impressive cultural diet envied by many larger rivals. A
small, stimulating city with an infectious, upbeat mood, it's well
worth a stop: in addition to its fine museums and Busch Gardens ,
one of the most popular theme parks in the state, it boasts in Ybor
City the West Coast's hippest and most culturally eclectic quarter.
- Venice, in southwest Florida, is known as the Shark Tooth Capital
of the World.
Palm Beach - Established
in 1894 by railroad tycoon Henry Flagler, West Palm Beach is at the
northern end of Florida's "Gold Coast" which also includes
Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale and Miami Beach. To the east lies Palm
Beach and the Atlantic Ocean; to the west Loxahatchee Wildlife Preserve
and Everglades National Park.
Sun filled days spent at a beautiful sandy beach, memorable sunsets
over a glistening Gulf of Mexico (or was that golf of Florida?), world
class shopping and exquisite fine dining, adventuresome recreational
opportunities including golfing and horseback riding, reef diving and
deep sea trophy fishing. Exciting days enjoyed with the family at Orlando
area theme parks and attractions and much more. All waiting for
you in sunny Florida.
