What’s the first thing you think of when someone says Florida? Beaches? Disney? Salsa clubs? If you said any of these, you’d be right, but you’d also be leaving out a big part of the picture that makes Florida amazing. The Everglades National Park is home to some of the most remarkable endangered species, such as the manatee and the not-so-endangered alligator. Tampa Bay and St. Petersburg form a bustling metropolis, and although not as notorious as Miami, it’s still pretty exciting. Cape Canaveral is NASA’s launch site, and the panhandle is known for its great seafood and Pensacola, where you might be able to act out your Top Gun fantasies. The Keys are also one of the most visited places in the US, where you can hop between hundreds of islands, big and small.

    Personally I love warm, tropical weather so Florida is place I like to be. Lot so people from New York, New Jersey and all over the Northeast head south for the more agreeable weather.

    Adrian Chang said it all. Florida is horrible. Florida is wonderful. The pockets of unbelievable tropical beauty make all the rest of it worth it. Florida is home.

    Florida is an interesting place to be. You have the Miami strip for nightlife (it's not that big) and Disneyworld nearby. The climate is typically warm and humid. Cool place to visit, probably not so cool to live.

    Florida is a unique State. It's more liberal in the south than it is in the north. It's the home of Disney World, space shuttles and the Miami nightlife. Take a cruise to the Caribbean or drive out to the amazing Florida Keys. And the fun continues to the local wildlife, particularly for alligator lovers.

    Florida is one of the best retreats in the U.S., has family vacations (such as
    Disney World), amazing beaches making it the perfect state in the USA for a vacation.

    We have only been to the Orlando area as we "did"the parks.We discovered for us that if the kids had been younger we would have enjoyed the Disney parks but as they are older teens they weren't to interested and I think the hype before we went ,we expected more.The Universal parks on the other hand were great the teens loved it and so did the older ones of the family group.We did go out on a tour airboat and really enjoyed that,saw some crocigators(can never remember if its gators or crocs ).Shopping is great and you can find anything from the expensive to the cheap and tacky and for me the tackier the better.Take lots of photos and remember where you go,I found keeping a quick holiday diary was great as when I am at home on a cold rainy day,I get out the photos and the diary and dream of heat and sun.

    I lived in West Palm Beach for 6 years If you can handle heat and humidity the weather is great. If you are ever in the West Palm area visit Lion Country Safari. It is a drive through zoo. As far as I am concerned a must see for everyone
