Add to all these some breathtaking natural attractions and beautiful cities to explore, plus blissfully balmy weather throughout the year, and you have all the ingredients for a memorable American vacation.

Hop on for a tour of Florida’s most beautiful cities, from picturesque, old-world St. Augustine to sexy, Latin-laden Miami.

St. Augustine

Aviles - The oldest street in USA

With its alluring Spanish Colonial architecture and narrow cobblestone streets lined with delightful cafes, St. Augustine could be easily mistaken for a giant theme park, but fortunately, it’s not. As the oldest European settlement in the US, this unique city in northeastern Florida is bursting with old-world charm and historic landmarks.

A variety of top-notch museums and monuments along with a scenic white-sand beach and some of the state’s best restaurants contribute to St Augustine’s undeniable charisma.

Key West

Key West, Florida

Closer to Havana than to Miami, Key West is one of the quirkiest and most scenic cities in Florida. Needless to say, it has something for everyone, from partying, beaches, and fantastic water activities to interesting museums that document its fascinating history. One of Key West’s most attractive parts is the beautiful Old Town, with its distinctive 19th-century wooden houses and quaint courtyard gardens.

Some noteworthy attractions include Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum, Key West Butterfly & Nature Conservatory, the legendary Sunset Celebration in Mallory Square, as well as the nearby Fort Zachary Taylor Historic State Park, with its lovely white-sand beach.

Miami

Miami, Florida

There’s beauty everywhere around you in Miami, from the glittering skyline and epic fiery sunsets to its iconic Art Deco and MiMo architectural styles to the tanned and stylish good-looking people parading around in designer outfits.

But Magic City, as Americans call it, is much more than just a sight for sore eyes – it is a living, breathing metropolis with exciting, culturally diverse neighborhoods, a blossoming art scene, sexy beaches, and some of the best nightlife in the world.

Naples

Naples, Florida

Upscale shopping, excellent dining, and fabulous pearly white sands make Naples one of Florida’s classiest and most charming vacation spots.

Also known as the “Golf Capital of the World” or “Paradise Coast”, this romantic city in southwest Florida prides itself with over 90 golf courses and some of the most beautiful beaches in the state. It is also famous for its chic, laid-back ambience, spectacular sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico, and well-to-do locals, whose stunning million-dollar homes line the waterfront.

Orlando

Orlando, Florida

Orlando may be the world’s theme park capital, but venture off the tourist trail and what you’ll discover is a lovely, characterful city teeming with cultural and outdoor activities, hip restaurants, and charming boutiques.

The beautiful Lake Eola in the heart of Downtown Orlando is a wonderful place to relax, enjoy a picnic, and watch the world go by, while the picturesque surrounding neighborhoods have everything from museums and fine-dining restaurants to eye-catching historical architecture. North of Orlando, the posh town of Winter Park, with its brick-paved streets, unique shops, and world-class galleries, makes for a great day trip.

On the other side, no trip to Florida would be complete without a visit to a theme park. Bring out the child in you with a tour of the stunning Walt Disney World Theme Parks or spend the day at LEGOLAND Florida, which is the largest of its kind in the world. If you’re more into culture, a flight to the Sunshine State will also offer you the opportunity to explore Epcot, where in addition to fantastic rides and shows, you can learn about the culture, cuisine, and architecture of 11 nations at the World Showcase.
