Florida, the Sunshine State, is home to much more than just beaches. The entire state is a wondrous place filled with numerous attractions for vacationers.
Sure, you might know about Universal Studios and Walt Disney World, but here are a handful of vacation attractions you may not know of.
Let's just see what we can dig up in Florida.
If you are looking for stuff to do with the kids, take them to Jacksonville Museum of science and History. It'll be fun for the whole family, and educational at the same time.
For the romantic couples out there, I have a perfect place for you. Sanibel and Captiva Islands are as romantic as it can get. Take a walk on the white sandy beaches. You and your loved one with walk hand in hand experiencing pure tranquility.
For my money, the Ten Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuge, which spans over 35,000 acres, is also another must-see attraction. Enthusiastic nature lovers pack your backpacks and your tents and let's go camping.
Silver Springs – Ocala, Florida
Silver Springs is a beautiful 350-acre "nature's theme park." Here you can see the underground springs from the famous glass-bottom boat. The Silver Springs surrounds the headwaters of the Silver River, the world's largest artesian spring.
If you like to hike or ride a bike, the Grayton Beach State Park offers a four-mile off road trail. There's even a 10-mile bike path along Hwy.30.
Bikers who like a leisure pace and eye-popping scenery will enjoy all this great park has to offer.
So Much More in Florida
Florida has countless opportunities to enjoy yourself. I hope this sampling of vacation attractions sparked an interest and brave you more ideas. From the beaches to canoeing to culture to fishing, Florida has it all.
