America is one of the biggest and most diverse countries in the world. From snow-tops to sweltering deserts, bustling cities to sprawling suburbs – such a huge range of lifestyles and experiences make it one of the most exciting travel destinations across the globe. On the flip side, this exciting diversity also makes it one of the most challenging holiday destinations to book, particularly for those with limited time.
Whilst looking for villas to rent in Spain may be the first thing the majority of British families do when booking their holiday, Florida is proving to be just as popular as our number one European destination. There are still plenty of considerations which need to be made to ensure you get the best deal but by planning carefully you could make sure you have the perfect holiday,
Where to stay
There’s a huge range of accommodation available in Florida; from resorts to hotels and hostels. Like every area in the world, there are sections of Florida that are less safe than others so be sure to do your research prior to booking.
If you’re hoping to find luxury accommodation but don’t want to pay the luxury price tag, one of the best options is a private villa. There are villas in Florida that offer easy access to all of the major attractions, including villas in Orlando which are located in close proximity to various theme parks.
When to go
The best time to holiday is Florida is based purely on your like (or dislike) of the heat. There isn’t really a perfect holiday season in Florida but rather the region has two seasons. Like in the tropics, the dry season is during winter and runs roughly from November through to April. Temperatures are lower, usually around the low 20s, and there is considerably less humidity and rain. This makes it perfect for the range of outdoor activities the state is so well known for, like canoeing and hiking.
The wet season, which runs from May to October, brings higher temperatures, more moisture and frequent rainstorms so may be a riskier time for travel for those sensitive to such weather conditions. The chance of hurricanes is also strongest during this period.
What to do
Florida is packed full of countless activities to see and do. Nature lovers can’t pass up a trip to the iconic everglades. With an estimated 1.25 million gators in the state of Florida and an estimated 57 endangered species dwelling in the marshlands, you’re guaranteed to see some amazing wildlife.
Away from nature, there are plenty of sights and activities that are suitable for the whole family. The city of Orlando is the perfect destination to take the kids, with a superb range of theme parks to pick from, including Universal Studios and Walt Disney World Resort. Choosing to stay in high quality accommodation provided by reputable companies such as James Villas will place you at the heart of this action, with stunning scenery and plenty of activities to keep you occupied during your stay.
