    Spend a day relaxing on the beach, one of the best in Florida, either soaking up the sun or partaking in one of the many fun filled water activities including surfing, jet skiing, parasailing and so much more.

    World-class golf awaits you in the Daytona Beach. The area is covered in famous fairways designed by the legends of the sport.

    Take a walk along Main Street Pier or the oceanfront boardwalk offering a variety of entertainment.

    Daytona Beach is rapidly becoming one of the most popular retail destinations in Florida. Between malls and shopping districts, boutiques and specialty stores, the Daytona Beach area has something for everyone.

After dinner you will find plenty of exciting options to fill your evening with a vast choice of bars, live entertainment, dancing and high energy clubs.

    • Top Tip 1

      From May to October, look out for the sea turtles laying their eggs in the sand and the subsequent migration of the hatchlings from their nest to the ocean. Some turtles will lay up to 250 eggs in the one nest! Naples is a great place to experience this.

    • Top Tip 2

      Driving through the Florida Keys is straightforward as there is just one road in and out - Highway 1. Everything is measured by 'Mile Markers'. Start at MM127 and go through to MM0, which is when you know you've arrived in Key West.

    • Top Tip 3

      Whilst in the Keys, visit the Dolphin Research Centre in Marathon. You'll not only learn all about our favourite marine mammal, you can swim with them too.

    • Top Tip 4

      For the best Florida shopping experience, and there are plenty of them, our vote goes to Mizner Park in Boca Raton for a relaxed, upscale shopping and dining experience.

    • Top Tip 5

      Another 'must do' shopping experience is of course Worth Avenue, Palm Beach, even if it's just for a little window-shopping.

    • Top Tip 6

      There are lots of toll roads in Florida, and you may find you're on one soon after you leave the airport so be prepared with some quarters to save time. Charges vary but expect to pay approximately $1.50 each time.

    • Top Tip 7

      For a really fun experience, take an airboat ride on the Everglades spotting alligators and manatees. It's an experience that all the family will enjoy.

    • Top Tip 8

      If you're travelling during the summer months, be prepared for afternoon showers most days. They only last a couple of hours and it soon dries up...and of course it's usually warm rain!

    • Top Tip 9

      Longboat Key, Naples and Marco Island are three of Florida's best kept secrets. All have wonderful beaches as well as great golf, fine dining and luxury shopping.

    • Top Tip 10

      One of Florida's most scenic drives is route A1A which hugs the coast all the way from Fernandino Beach in the north to Fort Lauderdale where it becomes Highway 1 and continues down to Key West.
