If you fancy some late year sun or are planning for a holiday next year, then why not think about Florida.

Called the sunshine state, Florida has its fair share of theme parks including Disneyland, Universal, Epcot and Seaworld but there is so much more to Florida than that.

Staying in the central hub of Orlando means you’ll find mini resorts a plenty such as Lake Beunavista, Kissimmee and International Drive to name but a few.

A stay in one of these areas means you”ll be perfectly placed for all the attractions, but, half an hours drive north and you”ll come to the real Orlando with its business district, history and plenty of good restaurants and bars.

Head west for a coastline swathed with golden beaches, powder soft sands await you at St Petersburg, Clearwater and Tampa, further south you will find chic Naples and the Everglades National Park, home to wildlife such as manatee and alligator.

Divert your attention east and you will discover Florida”s Atlantic Coast. The beaches here are huge, daytona stretches out for 23 miles. This side of the state is also home to Fort Lauderdale (also know as little venice) and the NASA Kennedy Space Centre.

On Floridas south tip, you”ll find the Keys and Miami. It takes more than 3 hours to travel here by car from Orlando, which gives you the excuse you need to turn your holiday into a twin centre break. Spend 10 nights in Orlando and top it up with 4 days in Miami.

So if Florida sounds like the holiday of a lifetime, pop in and see the staff at Thomas Cook in Girvan’s Dalrymple Street today!
