Spring break may have past, but the gorgeous weather of springtime is in full swing. Florida is one of the best places to vacation in the springtime, and the beaches are ripe for the picking. Who doesn’t want to visit the beach when they are in the state of Florida?
The beaches aren’t the only great thing about vacationing in Florida. Check out some of the coolest things to do and places to go while you seek respite from the everyday grind of life.
Consider visiting Gainesville
Gainesville could keep you and your family busy for several days, so you may want to plan to spend some time there. Plan for more than just a drive down the Gainesville strip. Of course, it’s beautiful, but there’s a lot more to the place than palm trees and gorgeous scenery.
Schedule an itinerary, and consider these suggestions as your making your list. There’s a butterfly rainforest, Carson Springs Wildlife Reserve, and the Kanapaha Botanical Gardens to keep you entertained during your stay.
Have a party visiting Siesta Key
Why not enjoy your version of partying in a place named Siesta Key? Just a short drive from Sarasota, Florida, Siesta Key offers an island vibe for you and the whole family. You can rent bikes or kayaks from local vendors, and spend endless hours enjoying what the island has to offer.
Orlando offers the joy of Disney World
It probably isn’t hard to convince you that Orlando, Florida is a freakin’ awesome place to go on your springtime vacation. Disney World offers the magic of four major theme parks, two waterparks, and tons of different Disney-themed hotels to stay.
As if that wasn’t enough incentive to visit Orlando, you can also enjoy the Universal Resort. Visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and Diagon Alley.
Check out the beaches in Clearwater
Clearwater is one of the most beautiful places in the whole state. The beaches of Clearwater are dusted with white sands and crystal clear waters. The second best thing about Clearwater is its central location to other interesting destinations. You’re just 30 minutes away from Busch Gardens and The Florida Aquarium.
Cocoa beach and the Kennedy Space Center
If you’re down for some time on the water surfing, Cocoa Beach is the surfing pinnacle of Florida. You can check out the best surf gear in this area as well. The very first Ron Jon Surf Shop began in Cocoa beach.
In addition, don’t miss out on seeing a rocket launch at the famed Kennedy Space Center. All of the most historic launches stemmed from this location, so there’s a rich history to absorb as you explore.
