Welcome to Florida

There’s more to this panhandle US state than just Walt Disney’s Magic Kingdom. An airboat experience in the Everglades showcases one of the world’s largest wetlands, the powdery sand beaches on the Gulf of Mexico offer the perfect getaway, and a walking tour of Miami’s vibrant food scene lets travelers in on some of the eclectic elements that make up Florida’s spirit. From Kennedy Space Center to the string of islands that make up the Florida Keys to, yes, Orlando’s ubiquitous theme parks, the Sunshine State mixes outdoor adventure, diverse culture, and family fun to form an all-in-one destination that delights all ages.

When to visit

Depending on what you're looking to do, the best time to visit Florida varies. If theme parks top your list, winter is your best bet for good weather, though you’re guaranteed to encounter high-season crowds and prices come December. If it’s beaches and sunshine you’re after, you can count on summer for blue skies and sunshine.
