From the days of the Spanish conquistadors, Florida has attracted people in
search of a heaven here on earth. And although Ponce de Leon
may not have found his fountain of youth, Florida continues to hold an
incomparable allure for all those who visit its welcoming shores.
Blessed with a near-perfect climate ranging from temperate to tropical,
Florida offers day after day of golden sun. The seemingly endless miles of
silky-smooth beaches are the perfect take-off point for diving, boating and
water fun. And whether you choose the bracing waves of the shimmering
Atlantic or the serene surf of the Gulf of Mexico, you may find that you'll never want to leave.
Florida's diversity makes it a perfect destination for everyone - families,
honeymooners, and those looking for a stress-free getaway. Top-rated golf
courses dot the landscape. Disney attractions beckon for kids of all
ages. World-class museums, cultural events and exquisite dining await you.
And centuries of rich and varied history have left fascinating historic
districts, imposing fortresses and remarkable architecture. From the
allure of Amelia Island in the north to the tranquil tropical splendor of
Key West, no holiday destination offers
so much charm, so much sun and so much exhilaration in one place.
