Why Florida?

Of course anyone who has been lucky enough to visit the beautiful state of Florida would now be answering ‘why not? ’

However, if you think it’s going to be a destination that is similar to the United Kingdom, in a country that shares a common language and where there is a shared history and expectations – forget it! And there lies the rub – the unique qualities that should encourage travellers to dip their toes into the ‘southern comfort’ region of the United States are exactly the similarities and subtle differences that draw the discerning visitor. It is the amazing way that all things Floridian blend together that gives the state those unquantifiable qualities that entrance all who visit.

Good things are worth waiting for; the fact that many visitors to the ‘sunshine state’ will need to access it after a long flight, simply enhances the excitement and anticipation the traveller will feel in the daydreams they weave during the journey.

So what does await them?

Well, where do you start to explain the diversity that is Florida? Consider the sub tropical climate, the warmth of the welcome or the lilt and drawl of the local’s conversations. Perhaps the southern food will tempt, or the easy way of life or else the superb accommodation available will lure eager visitors. Everyone has seen Florida in the movies; here’s one instance where reality really does hit the spot and exceeds all preconceived ideas. Those wide open spaces beckon; a vast deserted acreage devoted to incredible wildlife seen in situ; beautiful serene blue seas where the temperature is as comfortable as a warm bath and where the fine white sands are as cool and luxurious as a deep pile open-air carpet.

Florida offers all thing s to all people and in this aspect alone it will win hands down over other holiday destinations. Families can enjoy the delight of theme parks, where dreams are magically transported into reality and memories last forever. Shopping Malls offer even the hardened shop – mad browser the opportunity to ‘shop until they drop’ and then some!

Of course, it goes without saying that Florida is a golfer’s paradise and a holiday would need to be extended by many weeks in order to encompass the many courses that are available In fact, many visitors have returned again and again to the greens to savour the delight of all-year golf in idyllic surroundings, where they can improve their game under the coaching of expert professionals and then retire to the nineteenth hole to share their experience with other seasoned players. Facilities for all sports are outstanding and it will be here, in Florida where even the most reluctant sportsperson will be enticed to ‘have a go’. Whatever an individual’s level of competence is, there will be something to encourage participation and create success.

And so it goes on . . .

Don’t take my word for it, live the dream, visit Florida and once you’ve sampled its delights you will wonder why you’ve waited so long; and then of course, you will return again and again!
