Many people have longed to visit Disney World in Orlando, Florida. This idea is great and can be fun for the entire family. However, there are more cities in the state of Florida, which have some great excitement and fun that your family will also enjoy such as Miami, Orlando, Tampa, Daytona, the Space Coast, and Saint Augustine.
We will start in Orlando only because it has the most famous family and personal attractions in all of Florida. Not only does Orlando have Disney World, but it is home to Universal Studios. Universal Studios can take you behind the scenes of your favorite movie, or TV show. It also has rides and live shows; you can even see a movie crew in progress as they are filming.
In Tampa, Florida, there are attractions such as Bush Gardens, Lowry Park Zoo, the Museum of Science and Industry, the Florida Aquarium, and much more. Bush Gardens is also the home to adventure camps, the Worlds of Discovery, Adventure Island, as well as Bush Gardens itself.
Next there is Daytona, Florida, where all the racing fans are familiar with the Daytona 500. However, there is also horse and dog racing in Daytona as well. Daytona Beach is one of the most famous beaches in the world; and is home to Bike Week and Octoberfest. Daytona also has Adventure Landing Waterpark, where the family can have all sorts of fun.
The Space Coast is only 35 miles east of Orlando, located just outside of Titusville, Florida; and it is full of sandy beaches, the Space Center which is home to NASA, and the Kennedy Space Center. Here your family can visit the Space Museum and even have your picture taken in a space suit. Just outside of the Space Center is the Space Camp where children go to learn how the astronauts train for their missions.
The last city to talk about is the oldest city in the United States, Saint Augustine, Florida. In Saint Augustine, you can walk down St. George Street to see some of the oldest buildings from the old world. In fact there are many old buildings located all around the city. The family can see old forts, lookouts, and stores which look almost as they did back then. Like most of the cities you can take a romantic carriage ride around the city. You can also visit the Ripley’s Believe It Or Not Museum.
Miami, Florida, offers some great bay cruises as well as other activities. You can take a trip through the everglades and visit Jungle Island, or Gator Park. There are a variety of wildlife shows and airboat rides. You can charter a boat and take a fishing trip in the saltwater or freshwater (brackish water) fishing in the everglades. You can take a relaxing day at one of the beaches in the area.
No matter which city in Florida you choose to take your vacation, you can always find cruises to take; whether the cruise is for sightseeing or a saltwater fishing tour, you will have an unforgettable vacation experience. You can also learn to sail, or just take trip on the open water of the Atlantic Ocean.
