If you asked people which state they would most like to visit in America, Florida would come really high up on the list. The Sunshine State is the home to DisneyWorld, Universal Studios and The Kennedy Space Centre, as well as being the site of the Everglades.
If you are planning a trip to Florida with your family this Summer, you may well need to write a list of the places you want to see. I have produced a list of some of the places that are on my Florida Bucket list which might just help you to have the best family holiday this year.
The Kennedy Space Centre
I blame Professor Brian Cox. Ever since his highly rated TV show unlocked some of the mysteries of space, I’ve been a bit obsessed. And with 2019 being the 60th anniversary of man landing on the moon, now has to be the best time to visit The Kennedy Space Centre.
This was the launching site of Apollo 11 in 1969, and every space flight since. A chance to get up close and personal with rockets and their launch site is an absolute must if you are visiting Florida, a real experience you will never forget.
The Magic Kingdom
If you are travelling with children, then The Magic Kingdom at the Walt Disney World Resort is just unmissable. Comprising 6 themed lands, this attraction is the one where you get to meet Mickey, Minnie, Donald and all their friends, whilst enjoying a host of rides and experiences, taking in all that is magical about Disney.
The films and the characters never grow old, and you are never too old to enjoy the magic of Disney. This is truly one for all the family.
Keeping with the entertainment theme, if you are a fan of the big screen then you must take a trip to Universal Studios. The Studio experience comprises rides and attractions, including those dedicated to Harry Potter, The Mummy, The Cat In The Hat and Dudley Do Right, with entertainment shows, food and shopping.
If your idea of the perfect holiday includes snorkelling, fishing and messing around on boats, then you should pay a visit to the Florida Keys. The home of Ernest Hemingway, the Florida Keys are a gorgeous string of almost tropical islands that are the perfect place to unwind and discover the real Florida. Maybe watch the video of Key Largo before you travel to get a flavour of the Keys.
