Florida Map

The ‘Sunshine State’ of Florida is best known for its superb weather, endless miles of fantastic coastline and some of the world’s best theme parks and attractions. However, if you venture beyond the hills of these popular destinations, you will find a variety of unique experiences lying in store for every kind of traveller.

Unbeknown to many, Florida is a land of great contrast – featuring historic forts and space age technology, a vibrant entertainment scene and stunning natural landscapes that support a diverse range of wildlife. Florida fly drive holidays are the best option for travellers keen to explore every inch of this vast state, from the northern reaches of Jacksonville right down to the southern tip of the Florida Keys.

The Florida Keys should be a priority destination during your Florida driving tour. It is made up of a string of tropical islands that stretch over a hundred miles, featuring beautiful reefs and coastlines and plenty of opportunity for diving, fishing and snorkelling. In fact, the Florida Keys is home to some of the most spectacular scuba diving experiences in the continental US. The Florida Reefs are an underwater paradise located just a few miles off the coast.

Another popular spot for many embarking on a Florida Keys fly drive holiday is Key West – a tropical paradise offering a unique blend of history, natural beauty and cultural diversity. Here Caribbean-style streets, quirky bars and historic attractions can be found at every turn, while many simply enjoy a relaxing stroll along the harbour to watch the stunning sunset.
