When you think about Florida, you probably imagine postcard-perfect photos of palms, sandy beaches and people relaxing and living their best lives. And the best thing is that Florida really is like that. It\u2019s a state with so much to offer for any tourist, so here are some spots that need to find themselves on your itinerary. St. Augustine Let\u2019s start from the north for Florida, St. Augustine. This European settlement was founded in the 16th century by Spanish explorers. The city is known for its colonial architecture and atmosphere of the Old Continent. From the Spanish fort Castillo de San Marco and the Ponce de Leon Hotel to Villa Zorayda (a palace inspired by the famous Spanish Alhambra), St. Augustine will charm you with its colonial influence and Spain-inspired atmosphere. Daytona Beach About an hour drive from St. Augustine, you will find the renowned Daytona Beach, a city known for wild spring break parties and all things car-related. The love of speed and racing is best visible at the Daytona International Speedway (home to Daytona 500 NASCAR race), but you can find it everywhere around you, even at the beach. If you have a license, rent a car, fill it with friends and picnic necessities and hit the Original American Beach for some sunshine, waves and fun.\u00a0 Orlando Many cities and towns by the beach have little amusement parks, but let\u2019s hit the big one right away\u2014Walt Disney World and its four Disney theme parks. From Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom to Epcot and Disney\u2019s Hollywood Studios (and two water parks), you will have hours or days of endless fun and movie magic. And that\u2019s not all! For some more magic, hit Universal Studios in Orlando and dive into the wizardry world of Harry Potter and friends\u2014you\u2019ll feel like you\u2019re backstage of your favorite family movie. Miami Miami is a truly unique spot in the world\u2014not many places can compare to its colorful, vibrant and friendly charm. Miami Beach is the place to be. Everyone from retirees to party animals will love the art deco vibe, the Ocean Drive and especially the chill atmosphere of South Beach. But, don\u2019t forget to arm yourself with a lot of cash for your Miami adventure. The city\u2019s museums, clubs, restaurants and tours don\u2019t come cheap. To get the best deal and familiarize yourself with the city, it\u2019s best to opt for affordable Miami sightseeing tours and explore this destination and its surroundings. There are boat tours, city tours, sightseeing tours and everything else that might interest you for a price that won\u2019t break your bank. Everglades You can\u2019t explore Florida without visiting the Everglades, the largest subtropical wilderness in the United States. A national park founded in 1934, the Everglades also include one of the largest contiguous stands of protected mangrove forest in the world. This swampy area is home to over 30 endangered animal species like the Florida panther, American crocodile and the manatee. And you can explore the area\u2019s spectacular nature on foot, by boat or by kayak and canoe. Whatever you do, just make sure to have an experienced guide by your side\u2014they can give you insight into all the flora and fauna and ensure you don\u2019t get lost or stuck in the marshes. The Everglades is mysterious, murky, muddy and filled with vicious predators and people are known to disappear into thin air. Key West If you\u2019re ready to leave the Everglades and get back to warm beaches and friendly people, Key West will completely revive and rewire your brain. The residents of Key West have a live-in-the-moment approach to life, so do as they do and see where the tide takes you. Maybe you end up on a guided tour or maybe you suddenly find yourself in a Duval Street bar or Mallory Square shop. Key West doesn\u2019t abide by too many roles (it even threatened to go rogue in the 80s) so leave your itinerary at home and just chill, stroll, sip margaritas, watch street cats and enjoy life. Hurricane Irma did a number on the area in 2017, but Key West recovered and is ready for visitors. If you want to see the whole of Florida, you\u2019ll have to move there (which is not a bad idea), but if you only have time for a short trip, make sure to at least visit these top destinations. You won\u2019t regret your time, money and effort!
