Florida is known as the "Sunshine State," and for good reason.
Located on a peninsula on the south-eastern tip of the United
States, it boasts 1,770 kilometres of coastline just waiting for
you to sink your toes into the hot sand. Tack on world-class
attractions, fantastic shopping and cuisine of every variety, and
you'll see this holiday destination presents only one real
challenge - deciding what to do first.
Travellers to the land of Mickey put themselves at a
disadvantage if they don't consider looking beyond Disney's Magic
Kingdom. There are a whole slew of other amusements including
Epcot, Disney-MGM Studios and Animal Kingdom, as well as Universal
Studios, Sea World and classic attractions such as Gatorland.
Suffice it to say there's plenty here to keep you busy.
