Holidays to Florida
There’s more to Florida than just theme parks. America’s most popular holiday destination, Florida package holidays offer you everything from the sunshine and golden beaches of Miami, to the nature reserves and wildlife of the Everglades and Florida Keys. We at Co-operative Travel offer cheap Florida holidays that are packed with fun and excitement – whether or not you visit Orlando.
The reason bargain holidays to Florida are so popular is down to two main things: the climate and location. A broad jutting peninsula just west of the Bahamas, the jagged coastline is studded with bays, river estuaries, inlets and lagoons. With a seemingly limitless supply of resorts, hotels and holiday villages to choose from, last minute Florida holidays are never in short supply.
A magnet for nature lovers and sun worshippers alike, vast tracts of Florida are given over to national parks and nature reserves, peppered with lakes and rivers. Florida holidays are popularly booked in Orlando, the Gulf Coast between Tampa and Naples, and East Coast resorts like Miami. You will also find lots of Florida holiday offers at the famous Florida Keys, a string of coral islands located on the southern tip of the Florida peninsula, and connected and accessed by a continuous highway. This is where you’ll find Key West, the USA’s most southernmost point, and Key Largo. With the sophistication and glamour of Miami Beach to the north, late deals in Florida’s Keys give you a chance to get back to nature – the Everglades are close by, though you’ll need a guide (and strong nerves) to see the crocodiles.
While Orlando is eternally popular with thrill seekers, families are increasingly drawn to book package holidays in the Tampa Bay Area, on the Gulf Coast. This is where you will find Busch Gardens, a massive combination of zoo and theme park, and historic Ybor City, once a cigar-making district and a magnet for culture vultures. Alternatively, you can book bargain holidays to Florida’s East coast; the Everglades and Cape Canaveral are just a short drive from Miami.
