Where the sun shines on beautiful beaches and fascinating wildlife

Flanked by the Atlantic Ocean to the east and the Gulf of Mexico to the west, the peninsular state of Florida has the charm and mentality of a laid-back island. The Sunshine State beckons to travelers with beautiful parks, incredible beaches and warm weather year-round.

There’s nearly 1,100 kilometers of beaches surrounding Florida, making it a popular vacation destination. At the heart of the state you’ll find plenty of golf courses, as well as the Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando theme parks. The southern part of Florida boasts one-of-a-kind National Parks, including Biscayne National Park near the Florida Keys and Everglades National Park, just west of Miami. The Florida Keys, an archipelago extending off Florida’s southern coast, is another great place to go for watersports, wildlife watching and relaxation.
