Marco Polo’s list of the top 10 things not to be missed in Florida! Our best recommendations – from the top down – help you to plan your tour of Florida’s most important sights.
1. FLORIDA KEYS
Florida Keys makes number 1 on our list thanks to its bewitching mix of liberality, a super relaxed lifestyle and a tropical climate.
2. SOUTH BEACH MIAMI
Crazy, creative, trendy and full of life: with its magnificent Art Deco architecture, the South Beach
neighbourhood is the very best reason to pay Miami a visit.
Meeting an alligator in these wetlands is an unforgettable experience – but don’t forget the countless other species that are also worth a look!
4. KEY WEST
Awash with artists, hedonists, Mojitos, Key Lime Pies, drag queens and Hemingway clones, this city on the Keys is the most liberal spot east of San Francisco.
5. MAGIC KINGDOM PARK®
Orlando has been shaped by Disney World®, the mother of all theme parks – and Cinderella’s castle in the Magic Kingdom Park® is the princess of all fairy tale castles.
6. KENNEDY SPACE CENTER
Get a taste of exciting contemporary history: it was from this space station that America took its first steps toward the stars.
Founded in 1565, Florida’s western most city is a pleasant, peaceful place. Alongside the Old Town, the gleaming white beaches are a magical attraction.
8. LITTLE HAVANA
Florida would be unimaginable without Cubans. Miami’s Little Havana – with the Calle Ocho at heart – brims with Cuban life like nowhere else in the USA.
9. ST. AUGUSTINE
With its romantic alleyways and plazas, St. Augustine – Florida’s birthplace – still has an unmistakably Spanish Colonial feel to this day.
10. TAMPA AREA BEACHES
Pinellas Peninsula by Tampa is a real tropical paradise. The soft, white, sugar fine sand makes the peninsula a real Mecca for all lovers of sun and fun!
