Things to see & do in Florida, USA

story by: Inspire USA

"Don’t worry, be happy" are famous words from Bob Marley, which depict the feeling you get whether experiencing the glamour, culture and hip lifestyle of Miami’s South Beach, or the thrills and fantasies of the Theme Parks in Orlando. Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando has to be seen to be believed. Four Theme Parks and two Water Parks cover 43 square miles wrapped up with shopping at Downtown Disney and entertainment at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. For contrast to the Theme Parks, Cape Canaveral is nearby on the coast, so put aside a day to visit Kennedy Space Centre. Miami is Florida’s gateway to the Caribbean. Experience a mixture of flavours from the art deco world of South Beach to the Cuban neighbourhood of Little Havana, or take an exhilarating airboat ride across the everglades to see the alligators.

Our favourite things to see & do

• WALT DISNEY WORLD RESORT – It’s the most magical destination in the world! Four Theme Parks and two Water Parks, this place is huge! Make sure you have at least 7 days up your sleeve to make the most of your time here.

• SEAWORLD ORLANDO – Has state-of-the-art rides such as "Kraken" and "Journey To Atlantis" that twist, turn, and drench you with unprecedented thrills, while amazing animal encounters include killer whales, dolphins, sea lions, stingrays and more.

• KENNEDY SPACE CENTRE – This is your chance to explore space travel and experience history in the making. An incredible glimpse of what goes on at the USA’s government installation that manages and operates America’s astronaut launch facilities. And if you want to take this a step further, there are options to have lunch with an astronaut or to even go through some astronaut training.

• ABUNDANT SHOPPING – The warm weather of Florida is the perfect backdrop to the large variety of outlet centres, specialty stores, boutiques and malls. An afternoon at The Florida Mall with more than 250 stores and restaurants will have you double checking your Visa. Make sure you include a visit to Prime Outlets Orlando – there are discounts galore here.

• DINING – Downtown is a hot spot for chic and trendy restaurants such as Citrus, The Boheme and Ceviche Tapas Bar & Restaurant. Also don’t forget Universal City Walk® and Downtown Disney – both have an entertainment complex.
