Things to do in Florida
Clearwater - be a pirate on Captain Memo's ship
Relive the life of a pirate for a couple of hours on Captain Memo’s pirate ship, a replica of the ships that use to plunder the seas of Florida. The kids will love the crew in their pirate’s costumes and stories of how they captured treasure ships and then having their faces painted, so they can join the crew. There are cruises every morning and afternoon, along the quiet waters, just off Clearwater beaches.
Cocoa Beach - take a trip to the Cocoa Planetarium
A trip to the Cocoa Planetarium is more than just staring at the stars, although you can do this on Friday and Saturday nights. There are also fascinating displays on the solar system, and how it was made, along with a wide range of film presentations on the sky, the world we live in, and the animals we share it with, making it an ideal trip for the whole family.
Daytona Beach - go for picinic at the Bulow Plantation Ruins State Historic Site
It is not a well known fact that in the past there were plantations all over Florida, but many of these were destroyed in the various wars that occurred in the region, not least the Seminloe War in the 19th century. This was the case with the plantation at Bulow, where the remains of the house and the sugar mill can be seen along a pleasant trail that goes through the old grounds. It is also a great place for a picnic.
Daytona Beach - see beautiful view from the Ponce de Leon Lighthouse
The waters off Daytona Beach were treacherous, and a lighthouse was badly needed, but a working lighthouse was not completed until the 1880’s although an earlier attempt had been destroyed in the 2nd Seminole War. The Ponce de Leon Lighthouse has been beautifully preserved along with the surrounding buildings, and makes for a great visit. Take your time climbing the 203 steps to the top, where you will be rewarded with some beautiful views and the beach, where car racing first started in the area.
Destin - splash at the Big Kahunas's Waterpark
The climate in Florida makes it ideal for a family day out at a water park, and the Big Kahuna’s Water Park in Destin is one of the best, with over 40 rides to choose from and suitable for all ages. Favorites include the 70ft drop in the dark on Jumanji or take the chance to do some surfing or body boarding on the Honolulu Half Pipe. The water park is open from mid May to early September.
Fort Myers - take a guided tour to the Edison and Ford Winter Estates
Famous people have always wintered in Florida for its climate, and some of their homes have been preserved as museums. Two of the most popular homes to visit are those of Thomas Edison, the famous inventor and Henry Ford, inventor of the Ford Motor Car. As well as viewing the houses you can look inside the museum, to find out about their lives and see some of the inventions they created.

Fort Myers - view endangered plant at the Six Mile Cypress Slough
The strangely named Six Mile Cyprus Slough is a preserved region of habitat, that has a number of endangered plant and animal species. The diverse ecosystem includes forest and marshes, with a boardwalk allowing you to explore the area in safety, and at the same time preserve the environment. There is plenty here to see but bring binoculars to really enjoy the day, and be sure to go around with a guide, as they know all the best places to spot the shy, wildlife.
Key West - explore the Ernest Hemingway home and museum
Ernest Hemmingway is possibly America’s most influential author. He is well known for the time he spent in Cuba, but many people are not aware that many of his works were written in the 10 years he spent on Key West. The local guides are very informative both on the house and the works of Hemmingway, they will keep you enthralled, as they show you around the beautifully maintained rooms and gardens, where many of the descendants of the cats that he wrote about, still live.
Miramar Beach - chill out at the Grand Boulevard with a cocktail
The Grand Boulevard at Miramar Beach is the place to go and be seen. The best place to relax and people watch is in Grand Park, with its open spaces and beautifully designed water fountain. There are plenty of spaces for the kids to play and run around in, making it an ideal place for families and for adults just wanting somewhere to chill out and relax. For those feeling hungry there are many restaurants to choose and dine in.
Ormond Beach - see art works at the Fred Dana Marsh Museum

Many examples of his different styles of work can be seen on the New York Subway but many examples of his work are at his museum in Ormond Beach, which is open every day and where he spent much of his life.
Introduction of Florida
Florida, also known as the Sunshine State, has long been a favourite holiday destination for international travellers.

The establishments located centrally in the state offer the best access to the theme parks while the southern part of the state benefits from the best of the beaches, the Florida Keys and the Everglades National Park. The capital of Florida, Tallahassee, is situated in an area known as the Panhandle to the north of the state.

It doesn't really matter where the precinct you stay as there are attractions here to please people of all ages regardless of their interests.
