Mention Florida and what springs to mind? Theme parks and Disney characters, dolphin displays and killer whales performing tricks, or paddling around the breathtaking Florida Keys in a canoe? Florida is all about diversity, and whatever your personal taste, there’s pretty much something here for everyone.
For families, Florida is the ultimate holiday destination and one that will keep your kids entertained from dawn ’til dusk. The theme parks and attractions of Orlando are the obvious starting point, as this is where you can watch your kids’ faces light up as they meet Mickey and Minnie, or hear them screech with delight as they whirl around an adrenalin-pumping roller coaster.
There’s plenty of non-stop action and adventure in Orlando, but that doesn’t mean there’s no room for a bit of peace and quiet. You could opt for a private villa holiday and while away your evenings serving up tasty barbeque meals, relaxing on the terrace as you and the kids re-live another memorable day.
It might sound like the millionaire’s lifestyle, but with so many cheap holidays to Florida on offer it doesn’t need to break the bank. You can book your own flight and hotel independently and organise your holiday just the way you like it, perhaps spending a few days in different areas of Florida and hiring a car to see the main sights. Or you could opt for a package deal and get it all arranged for you, which takes the hassle out of going away.
The best package deals are often found through large-scale tour operators – such as package holidays with Thomas Cook – as they have the best buying power and can pass on the savings to customers.
However you get there, with so many deals on offer there’s no better time to start searching for your perfect family holiday to the Sunshine State…
